Some other movies to track down would be:
Rebel of the Road (drag races filmed at Fremont Raceway- very cool)
Born to Run- hard to find but pretty good street-racing action.
Stingray- low budget "B" car chase film from '78 or '79. two guys in '64 Stingray chased by drug smugglers- good fun.
"Via Knievel"- ok, not really a car-guy film but great campy laughs and some decent jumps
Corvette Summer-
You could have a real film festival out in your garage!

“Rebel of the Road” and “Hot Rod” (non Samburg) are the same movie, remarketed. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0079307/

Crazy stuff, I was sampling craigslist on the laptop when I went back to my favorite movie memory.....two lane blacktop and the goat....not more than 30 seconds later the movie car was featured in the Rockford episode that was in front of me. Just had to chalk it up to "a bunch of stuff that happens".
