Poll Sug: Which woman would you trust to drive your race car?

Yes, you own a damn good fast race car but you don't have the skills to race it yourself. You need a driver and the only ones avialible to you are women. Each of these women have ether drive a hot fast race car or sports car and drive it at dangerous high speeds in their films or TV series. (0key, two are James Bond psycho killers ... they could drive.) Who would you trust with your ride?

The list is at http://www.imdb.com/list/ls069147314/...
P.s. As you can see there is room to add more entries. Plus also, since I'm bad at the name and models of cars, if you can name them on the ones I have missed, I would greatly appreciate it because it would add to the fun of this poll.

even though the obvious choice is shirley muldowney (who in real life was a race car driver), just the thought of emma peel driving my car is too cool to pass up...she would get my vote...

I got that one already from the IMDb's f.a.q. Page for that movie. But thanks for the further clarification because you went into more detail than they did.

Thanks, I have added most of this information onto this list. And your source actually helped with the Bond cars as well as the Fast and Furious cars.
But I had to axe Jackie Harris off to make room for Kono. And since I already had a woman driving a big rig on the list, Imperator Furiosa. I did like the joke you quoted and included in the comment to Furiosa as if she is saying "Hey Jackie, if you think you had distractions while driving fast, come try to drive your rig where I live down under!"
Besides, wasn't Jackie a cop at one time? Hey a patrol Car.

Would you please change "trust" to "pick" or "choose"? "Trust" implies that women are inherently untrustworthy at being drivers. I know, it seems petty, but I think it's important.

Okey, will do. But people who own those expensive race cars also have to trust the drivers with the huge investment they have in those cars. Trust is a vary large part in picking a driver. It has nothing to do with slandering a gender..

Grammar/spelling/punctuation/suggested corrections:

Ramsey - fine to just say "undetermined"
Mia - she drives her own cars and has a custom car same make as the gangs other matching cars.
On Thelma I would say "Drives Louise's..."
Stella - should be "Drives a Mini Cooper over anything in her way."
Stella's car is a red and white 1997 Rover Mini Cooper MkVII
Sway drives a Barracuda
I uploaded a photo for Nadine. Will let you know when it's approved.
Shaw - you could say, "any vehicle she can steal."
I uploaded a photo for Kylie. Will let you know when it's approved.
You could put undetermined" for Kylie.
Entry for Maggie should be "Drives Herbie the Love Bug, a white 1963 Volkswagen Sun-Roof Sedan Beetle, No. 53. "
I tagged a photo for Maggie.
I uploaded a photo for Diane. Will let you know when it's approved.

And you have periods at the end of some make listings and not on others. Would be good to make it consistent.

Could you please drop Ramsey for Penelope Pitstop?

Thanks for the information. I will add it.
What do you mean by "drop Ramsey for Penelope Pitstop"? Penelope is already on the list. She is at number 25. Oh wait! Do you want me to place Penelope Pitstop in a position on the list to match the number on her car. Cute idea, but that bumps Mia not Ramsey.
