Convoy (1978)

Today, I had myself a little nostalgic trip back to my early childhood of the late 1970s by watching a marathon of various trucker and "redneck" films from the period, such as Smokey and the Bandit, Every Which Way But Loose, Any Which Way You Can, and one of my favorites: Convoy (1978)....

So, in the spirit of the occasion, I decided to compile a small compilation of audio stuff related to the fim, which also happens to have been directed by one of my favorite directors, the late Sam Peckinpah (The Wild Bunch, Straw Dogs, and my personal favorite, Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid, amongst others)...
