The racers rearing to put pedal to metal
The Real Don Steele as Junior Bruce
Junior Bruce (The Real Don Steele) is the televised commentator addressing the nation and ramping up the interest … and heeeeere are the five racers; Frankentein (David Carradine), three-time winner, half man-half-machine after years of horrific accidents, Machine Gun Joe Viterbo (Sylvester Stallone), Calamity Jane (Mary Woronov), Nero the Hero (Martin Kove) and Matilda the Hun (Roberta Collins). Each driver has their own opposite-sex navigator (keep your eye out for a pre-Love Boat Gopher).

Death Proof (2007) and is currently being re-made (yeah, that’d be right), directed by high-brow "B-movie" director Paul W.S. Anderson, and stars Jason (not nearly as good an actor as he’d like to think he is) Statham and Ian (slumming it) McShane. The plot has been changed considerably and it appears the only character cross-over is Machine-Gun Joe.

(Though I have to say driver Case (Natalie Martinez) and Grimm navigator (Sharlene Royer) are suitably dynamite!)
