Remember Burt Reynolds With These 9 Cool Car Flics

motor1 Logo By Christopher Smith of motor1 | Slide 2 of 10: Reynolds was already well-known on the big screen when White Lightning came out in 1973, but this was the first film to associate the actor with exciting, and in this case, slightly comedic car action. Reynolds played ex-con Gator McKlusky who decided to work with the Feds to bring down a moonshining ring – and also to avenge the death of his brother at the hands of a crooked cop. The cars weren’t impressive and it’s strange to see Reynolds without his trademark mustache, but there’s all kinds of neat driving action. A sequel was made in 1976 but it lacked the automotive tomfoolery of the original.
