This one may be tough, but I'll tell all I can remember...
I rented this movie in '91 and it was a couple of years old (at least)- I'm not sure if it's an austalian movie or just took place in australia w/australian actors, but it's in australia, it's a car/street racer movie. couple of guys and a girl [Confused] racing a 4-door (falcon?) car against the head street guy, think he had an old challenger, they lose. they go out into the desert having some fun playing a game called "I spy" when they spot a '57 chevy, black, runin through the desert. when they catch up to the guy and his wife they find out he's blind. then the usuall racing/crashing stuff, but they wind up getting the "57 from the blind guy to race the challenger dude. They do a wild burnout forward then in reverse and eventually win the race, and I think the challenger guy crashes and dies or something. This has stumped us for years. Any clues?

Sounds like Running On Empty (1982).

You're right, Joe, Valley is not human. He's a cyborg from the future, sent by Nick the webmaster, to keep the forums entertaining, help people find movies they forgot the name of, and to destroy all trolls/spammers. While doing all of that, he's also on the lookout for one Sarah Connor.
