Alternatively if you’re stuck for inspiration Netflix have helpfully made some of their own for you to choose from.

Metro.co.uk had a crack at it, naming ours The Car Chases Flixtape.

We were recommended Sense8, Top Gear and Die Hard which makes sense, although we don’t think Top Gear is quite what we were after…

NEW YORK: It’s been a part of the rural American landscape for decades and, now, the pickup truck is finally getting honored with a postage stamp. Four of them, actually take a look at these – @AceTweetNews

#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Pickup trucks honored on postage stamps

The United States Postal Service’s pickup stamps will feature four classic American trucks: the 1938 International Harvester D-2, the 1953 Chevrolet pickup, a 1948 Ford F-1 and a 1965 Ford F-100. Each will be illustrated on a “Forever” postage stamp.

“For the significant contributions pickup trucks have made in molding this country’s landscape and revolutionizing how we transport ourselves and our goods, we proudly honor these four iconic trucks,” USPS Executive Vice President Jeff Williamson said in a statement.

The earlierst pickup-style vehicles modified passenger cars with their back seats removed and replaced with flat cargo beds. Before long, in the early 1900s, automakers were building pickup trucks at the factory. You could buy a Ford pickup as early as 1905, before the Model T was even available.

It was pickup variants of the popular Model T that really cemented the truck’s role as America’s workhorse. Before long, they were a crucial part of the American auto business. Today, the most popular vehicles in America, by sales volume, are pickups led by the Ford F-series and General Motors’ Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. Japanese automakers like Toyota, Nissan and Honda are also competing in the pickup market.

The root of the term “pickup” isn’t really known. You can pick things up with a car, a van or a box truck, too, but, for some reason, the name has become attached to just this type of vehicle, ones with an enclosed cabin for occupants and an open bed for cargo.

This isn’t the first time the postal service has honored vehicles on stamps. The postal service has issued Muscle car stamps, featuring cars like the Shelby GT500 and the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, motorcycle stamps, hot rod stamps and American sports cars stamps.

CLEVELAND: Like Big Star, this quartet ditched the beard-stroking of prog to channel the wham and bam of pop ’s golden age into something catchy and current – @AceTweetNews

#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Cult heroes: Raspberries – 60s-loving progenitors of powerpop

Even if you don’t know who Eric Carmen is, you probably know one of his songs. He was the writer and original performer of the none-more-mopey power ballad All By Myself, which reached No 12 in the UK and No 2 in the US in 1976. And if you don’t know his version, you perhaps know Céline Dion’s cover from 20 years later, a No 6 hit in Britain and No 4 in the US. If that’s all you know of Carmen, you might be inclined to turn away: All By Myself is Without You’s equally cheerless cousin. Put the two songs side by side and you’ve got a segue to end all hope.

Carmen has continued to work steadily since, but it’s not his post-smash career we’re interested in here. It’s the four albums he made between 1972 and 1974 fronting Raspberries, the Cleveland group who serve as a cleancut, wholesome mirror to the decadent, self-destructive Big Star, 730 miles away in Memphis. Even now, more than 40 years on, you can find on the radio, and we said, ‘Wow, those guys are really doing it!’ I thought that was a great song.”

CINCINNATI: A biopic on the life of New York mob boss John Gotti starring John Travolta is set to begin filming later this month – AP – @AceTweetNews

#AceNewsDesk – July.17: Movie about New York mob boss to be shot in Cincinnati
A movie starring legendary New York mob boss John Gotti will be filmed in Cincinnati.

A movie about legendary New York mob boss John Gotti will be filmed in Cincinnati.

Travolta will play the title character in “The Life and Death of John Gotti.” His real-life wife, Kelly Preston, will play Gotti’s wife.

The Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Film Commission says filmmakers are taking advantage of Ohio’s revised Motion Picture Tax Credit, which reimburses out-of-state movie producers for some expenses.

Gotti was the head of the Gambino crime family. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1992 after being convicted of murder and other counts. He died behind bars a decade later.

Travolta received an Emmy nomination Thursday for his performance as attorney Robert Shapiro in FX’s “People vs. O.J. Simpson.”
