Wow. I haven't watched this scene in years. There is something truly exciting about the way the scene is constructed. Perhaps it's the knowledge that these guys really were driving through San Francisco, which is crazy dangerous even at low speeds or maybe it is the sound of those muscular engines, but my pulse was racing in a way that it most often does not during the sterile, smoothly choreographed chase scenes of today. I got a similar feeling a few years back, watching Quentin Tarantino's 'Deathproof', which is sort of a paean to these old-style car chases and automotive stunts.
