    Kazaa is a file sharing network thingy (like napster) that also shares movie files and the like. The non-spyware version (Kazaa Lite) can be downloaded from <a href="http://doa2.host.sk/index.htm" target="_blank">http://doa2.host.sk/index.htm</a>

    It'd be a big download, but you could then make a Video CD out of it and be able to play it in a DVD player.

    If you'd rather a "real", high quality copy, the DVD is out -- but it's expensive (like $45-50).. some Aussie online shops at random that have it for sale:

    <a href="http://www.autospeed.com/shop/category_1294/product_1001400068/browse.html" target="_blank">Autospeed Shop</a>

    EDIT: @&#*ing second URL doesn't wnat to go into a link. The URL is <a href="http://www.pitstop.net.au/pitstop/prog/OpenDocument.cgi?id=V0X7S13PUM&PLU=13458" target="_blank">http://www.pitstop.net.au/pitstop/prog/OpenDocument.cgi?id=V0X7S13PUM&PLU=13458</a>

    I has been re-released and should be available at any good motoring book store. It's not a Daytona either. It is a 275 GTB. Still an awesome piece of footage, all these years later.

    Andrew D, are you able to setup an FTP server on your local machine? If so, I could connect in and FXP it to my website...
    Let me know

    Sorry, it is called getaway in stockholm (though the kazza file name is car chase.mpg), and it is a Porsche 911 i think. But there actually appear to be a few of these videos based in stockholm on kazza.

    The best thing to search for though seems to be "illegal street racing" and there are a heap of them you can take your choice of!

    This stockholm one though is certainly better than the paris one!

    Hope that helps!

    Getaway in stockholm is insane. Part 2 is great, a cossie and a supra i think? (Not sure about the 2nd car, havent seen it in 6 months or so). They reach unbelievable speeds. Definitely worth a download/watch.

    I downloaded it off the net. I'll see about copying it to cd if you like. I'll even include a copy of pikes peak if you like?

    cheers!

    DJ, I tried downloading the video from your link while at uni today (I love the insane speeds that you can download stuff at ) but I couldn't get all of it. Both times I tried downloading it, it would stop transferring after around 47 mb had been sent. Anyone else have this problem?

    (For the record, 47 mb downloaded in about 2-3 mins, reaching a top speed of around 800 kb/s! eek! eek! dance )

    Cheers,

    Lengthy post coming up, but here's a Fairfax supplement review of "Rendezvous" from this morning's paper that puts it in perspective. The 350Z Prague knock-off was just a Hollywood closed set by comparison.

    <<
    Some pretty darn good car chases have been committed to film. And then there's a certain little drive through Paris ... By Rod Easdown

    YOU DIDN'T MESS with Steve McQueen. I bet if he were alive today he'd be governor of California. There are a number of reasons why the car chase in "Bullitt" is the best ever committed to celluloid and after 35 years it's kind of amazing that no other movie director seems to have cottoned on. Only part of it is that McQueen as so goddam cool.

    This cool is what an impossibly young Mel Gibson was trying to emulate in the opening sequence of "Mad Max" (he lost it by looking shaken up after the wreck). Bruce Willis came close as the taxi driver in "The Fifth Element", but then who wouldn't drive like that when you have Milla Jovovich in the back seat saying "please help" and the cops after you intent only on getting her in their back seat.

    The two chases in "Ronin" are going to become legendary, and it's a much better movie than "Bullitt", but the dark green Mustang (registration JJZ-109 -- there's a green '67 Stang getting around Melbourne with the same plate) chasing the black Dodge Charger R/T remains the masterpiece of car chases, the car chase Rembrandt would have painted. Those precious 10 minutes are virtually the litmus for my living will -- the moment I am unresponsive to them is when they can pull the plug.

    Just two years before "Bullitt", in 1966, French director Claude Lelouch made a little movie called "A Man and a Woman" that became an arthouse hit around the world, because while sheilas could cry at the sop, blokes got off on the racecar sequences, and the racecar sequences are brilliant for their day, featuring another Mustang and, hey, a GT40 looking fresh as a button.

    This was a critical moment in the history of great car movies, not because of what "A Man and a Woman" was, but because of what happened as a result.

    You see, despite it being the '60s. when the moon was in the seventh house and Jupiter aligned with Mars. Lelouch did not donate the profits of his unexpected hit to furthering world peace. Nope, he bought a Ferrari 275 GTB/4, one of the last front-engined V12s to wear the prancing pony, and one of the best cars Ferrari ever made.

    Some years later he was shown a new movie camera with a built-in steadycam so good it could return quality vision while strapped to a fast-moving object. It didn't take him long to figure that this camera mounted on the front of the Ferrari could make for a helluva show. There was a problem, of course - it only held nine-and-a-half minutes of film. In an absolutely astounding coincidence, when he finished making "If I Had To Do It All Over Again" in 1976, that's exactly how much film stock was left over.

    Do you know Paris? Technically it's possible to drive from Porte Dauphine to Place du Tertre in nine-and-a-half minutes, just as technically it's possible to drive from East Balmain to Sydney airport in nine-and-a-half minutes. So at 6 one summer morning in 1977, when most Parisians were on holidays out of town, Lelouch gave it a go.

    He made it too; he even had enough film left after killing the motor to capture a delightful little conclusion to the movie.

    You've gotta see it. The vision is spectacular and shot all in a single take, no jump cuts, no dramatic music and no backing off - Lelouch had precisely 570 seconds. The red lights are real. So is the bus honking when the Ferrari crosses to the wrong side of the road, the flapping pigeons and the woman with the dog backing up against the wall when the Ferrari is on the footpath getting around the garbage truck.

    But the sound is the best. It's the ruthless, hard-edged howl of a V12 reducing lots of expensive rubber to smoke. Count the gears along the Champs Elysees and you wind up flat chat in fifth, no more to go. The brief, reverberating brap when the car blasts through the arch at the 0pera Garnier is utterly seminal ...

    This was the stretch Lelouch was most worried about, because there was no vision to either side. He put a man there with a walkie-talkie to listen for him and warn if anything was in the way It was only after filming that the lookout told him he couldn't get the damn thing to work.

    The little movie is called "Rendezvous". It was shown briefly in 1977 before feature films, where it was noticed by the proper authorities, leading to Lelouch being hauled before a magistrate who was presented with compelling evidence against the accused, namely the movie itself. His worship demanded Lelouch's licence, which was duly handed over, contemplated, turned over once or twice and handed back, the magistrate beaming: "I promised I would take your licence, but I didn't say for how long. My children love your little film."

    "Rendezvous" has been an underground classic ever since, but was never available on anything better than about 15th generation VHS procured through a darkly foreboding back door after you said Mo had sent you. But now it's on DVD. This is a pristine print and the sound is stunning. The freight is pretty stunning, too -- $45 for nine-and-a-halt minutes. It's the best $45 I've ever spent.

    A mate who imports home cinema equipment has a theatre out back of the office and he cranked up Rendezvous to a level he felt properly respectful (i.e. it would trip the quake alarms at the CSIRO) and let it rip. Holey moley. People came in from across the road.

    Should your juices need stirring, go to www.pitstop.net.au , the Perth specialist bookshop importing it, and doubtless making pots of money. And that's OK, at least they're genuine blokes into cars. just like Claude Lelouch and Sieve McQueen. Given Steve's unavailability, maybe Claude could be governor when Arnie's attention span is pooped.

    >>

    Check out the preview they offer if you're in any doubt about the sound ...

    Mr Bern,

    Really nice post, I like your style.

    Certainly whetted my appetite for the Rendezvou DVD. Hopefully I'll have $45 to spare before the censors, who claim to know what's good for us, try to ban it.

    My grandfather bought the DVD about a month ago from the car club he is a member of (can't remember which). We watched it over here at full volume and it really is spectacular! Problem was he doesn't have a DVD player at home so he exchanged it for the VHS version .
