The spirit of Cannonball Run lives on! Via CNet’s Caroline McCarthy comes word (and video) of last week’s Rental Car Rally from New York to Montreal. The rule? No speeding. Also, it appears people had to dress up. Perhaps not surprisingly the Thrillist boys were involved in this, though no word on whether anyone was diverted to Rochester. Richard Blakeley, who shared a car with McCarthy and David Karp (they were dressed as the Royal Tenenbaums), made a video of the whole shebang, though sadly there are no appearances by either Burt Reynolds or Sammy Davis Jr. — basically the only two things we remember from the original Cannonball.
