In this episode Marty and Chris compare two films where one inspired the other; The Gumball Rally (1976) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074597/) and Gumball 3000: The Movie (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390067/).
But first, we celebrate the Oscar success of Ford vs Ferrari (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1950186/), with insight into the VFX process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BFXcnBtpGA) and the difference between sound editing and mixing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GyqrRu492Q).
Motorsport.tv (https://www.motorsport.tv) have released Heroes (https://motorsport.tv/motorsporttv/video/heroes-full-movie/30339), Chris gives his opinion both on the network and Heroes.
An Eleanor hero car from Gone in 60 Seconds (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0187078/) has been sold (https://www.motorious.com/articles/news/385673/1967-ford-mustang-gone-in-60-seconds) and already listed for sale (https://www.s9shop.com/products/gone-in-60-seconds-eleanor-screenused-hero-car). In researching this, Chris turned up some interesting history on Tina, the '996' Porsche (https://bestmoviecars.com/porsche-996-tina-from-gone-in-60-seconds-2000/) that's stolen at the start of the film.
In the run up to No Time to Die (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2382320/) a stunt car DB5 replica has been driven by some outlets, with a good writeup on Pistonheads (https://www.pistonheads.com/news/ph-driven/james-bonds-aston-martin-db5--driven/41881). This reminded Marty of an old video of The Mercedes C63 AMG Experiment - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPh90yNX-mY).
Season 2 of Drive to Survive (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OEY3Q43aE_c) is being released on Netflix Feb 28th!
For this episode Marty revisits 1970's New York with The Gumball Rally (1976) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074597/) while Chris goes San Francisco to Miami with Gumball 3000: The Movie (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0390067/).
In this week's online highlights, Marty picked a Smoking Tire podcast with Fielding Shredder (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Os_dhGmW2M) while Chris nearly picked Mauro Calo driving his Nissan GT-R camera car filming a Nissan GT-R for a NIssan advert in a Nissan behind the scenes video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhS2lXiWKzY) but at the last minute he chose Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer: Henry Catchpole’s Definitive Road Review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogsV9LbDgOM)
