    Well, a few years back (that being probably before 2000 but im not sure) i saw a movie on TV that i thought was good at the time.

    Now at this time i tried my hardest to find out what that movie was called, for some reason i remember it being called either Route 66 or Highway 66 (or something that contains either Highway or Route Tongue Out)

    What i can remember from that movie is that they were a bunch of people who stole cars and drove them into the back of lorries on the move.

    One part i can remember is them bugging a car with a 'smoke grenade' to make the car look like it had something wrong with it. The driver of the car then stopped to try and see what the problem was. AFter that the people came up and offered to help the driver in distress to see what the problem was, they then got in the car, started it up and then drove away (because there was nothing wrong with it)

    I have no idea what the car was and i seem to recall it being blue with 2 white stripes..

    Some of the oldies on here may remember it, i hoped i could too but i just couldnt find that movie..

    Id say the movie was pretty modern and wasnt oldish.

    Ive looked on IMDB at what they have and none of it is just what i remember watching..


    Hope someone knows someone who knows what it is, or someone knows what it is!!

    Thanks in advance

    CHiPs 99

    From synopsis:

    "On the streets of L.A., the car thieves plant a device on a blue Dodge Viper. Out on the freeway, they push a button and cause the car to smoke. When the driver pulls over, they steal the car just like last time."

    Ok, but CHiPs 99 was a movie and was released in 1998; 15 years after the original series. It was a made for TV (reunion) movie.
