Time Rider- Produced by Michael Nesmith(yes, the monkey) who is the heir of the white out fortune developed by his grandmother. He raced a chevy class 8 under the same banner(with Randy Salmont) and was a big offroad supporter. Where has he gone? I think he was entered in the 2000. Gotta love the tech items like the pre-edited tape with course notes designed to match your oncourse speed... Whe ever would have thought a Honda would be called El Diablo and kill Mexicans?
Wasn't there a movie like that where the guy rode around on a Maico and he made alcohol fuel for it out of chicken/pig crap?!? I think that one had the guy riding around in a top secret desert area and he got caught in some time travel experiment or something. FUNNY!!
Oh yeah, what a cult classic. Love showing it to newbies who've never ridden Baja before. I just tell 'em things haven't changed much. Back of DVD reads:
"Lyle Swann (Fred Ward) is a champion off-road racer who accidentally gets zapped into a government time experiment and sent 100 years into the past. But when a gang of brutal bandits steals his motorcycle, Swann must outsmart the local desparadoes and submit to the desires of a beautiful outlaw woman (Belinda Bauer - the only eye candy in the movie). Armed with only his limited wits and a map from an Exxon station, can Lyle Swann survive the wild west and get back to one final freaky twist of his future?"
All for fun - drink a six, er, 12 pack before watching.
anybody remember the movie that had a guy who raced for nissan in class 7 eithier with or against roger mears at the mint 400?
cant remember the name but it was a cheesy love story. i think it was around 86-87.
Does anyoneknow the name of the Cheesey Spyu/thriller flick with Eric Estrada as the good guy? The chase scenes were him chasing the bad guys in one of the Arciero's Chenowth Magnums jumping streets in what looked like San Francisco. Really bad movie, and they never explained what he was doing driving a short course buggy on the streets. Anyone else have the misfortune of finding that one?
Sounds like "Night of the Wilding," where he was a lawyer defending some bad guys? Vaguely remember the buggy, but the horrible plot, ridiculous chase scenes and grade B acting were, as you said, cheesy.
I think I saw that movie when I was 7 or 8 and have only seen it a couple more times since then. Didn't he get rescued by a helicopter that chops that bad guy off at the ankles when it spins around or something? Back then I thought it was cool as s*#t, but now it is cheesy fun. Has anybody seen Vanishing Point? Not a offroad movie but a cult classic none the less.
my favorite "old" car movies are "Death Race 2000" and "the Wraith" humorously cheesy , but fun none the less. there is also a way old movie , one i forget most of , but its got this big boat of a car and its all blacked out and it chases people down . sort of christine'ish .
