#5 The French Connection
Number five on our Top 5 Muscle Car Chases list is coming from the great Hollywood thriller ‘The French Connection’, starring Gene Hackman. This movie from 1971 has one of the greatest car chase sequences in movie history. Beside Gene there is another star in the movie, the powerful classic muscle car Pontiac LeMans from 1971. Not a muscle car for many out there, but the car chase is just too good to be dropped out of the list.
