He also performed some stunts for Steve McQueen in Bullitt, especially during the film's famous car chase. Loftin Also acted as a Truck Driver in Stroker Ace (1983) and his face was never seen, Like Duel, but, not a Villain.

Other films to which he contributed include Vanishing Point, Stanley Kramer's multi-million dollar, all-star comedy It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, as well as Walt Disney's The Love Bug, and its second sequel.

A notable demonstration of stunt driving that Loftin performed was the car chase/race in Against All Odds (1984). He was the driver of the black Ferrari. According to the movie's director, Taylor Hackford, Loftin was 68 when he did this stunt. At first Hackford was reluctant to hire the aging stuntman but stunt coordinator Gary Davis convinced Hackford that even at 68, Loftin was by far the best car man in the business at that time.

Even Loftin Retired in 1991 at Age 77, After Doing Pink Lightning (1991) He Still took minor Stunt Roles as a Truck Driver, As Loftin use to love driving truck, enjoyed talking to Truck Drivers and Had a Passion for Trucks, Those Roles include Revenge on the Highway (1992), Red-Blooded American Girl II (1996), Fire Down Below (1997) and Black Dog (1998). Even though Black Dog was released in 1998, it was Filmed in late 1996 and was supposed to premier in 1997, but, 3 Trucking Movie's were in Made in 1997 and one had to be cut to make try and make them all popular movie's those movie's were Truck (1997), Breakdown (1997) and Black Dog (1998). The one Loftin worked on, Black Dog, was the one Chosen to premier in 1998, as It didn't tell well with the Movie Critic's, Loftin Did Truck Stunts for Main Character's Truck, who was played by Patrick Swayze. He also did stunt work driving the main character's trucks in B.J. and the Bear (1978-1981) and Movin' On (1974-1976), In Movin' On Loftin was mostly a Stunt Double for Claude Akins and Frank Converse for the out side driving scene's, even though Claude Akins and Frank Converse did having driving time during the filming of the show. In the episode "Games" of Movin' On he noted that Stunt Man George Sack had his first minor stunt Gig driving the truck when the truck hit the police car, otherwise than that, most of the driving scene's and all the other truck stunt scene's were done by Loftin.

A would-be dictator and scientist, known only as The Phantom Ruler, has developed a formula which, when sprayed on some solid object, renders that object and everything it contains invisible when exposed to rays emitted by a special lamp, also his own invention. Covered from head to toe in formula-treated cloth, he thus moves about unseen, presently with the objective of stealing enough money and formula components to render an entire army of willing followers invisible. Two henchmen assist him, along with several illegal aliens smuggled into the US by him and used to infiltrate, as employees, possible sites for him to later rob while invisible. When he successfully robs a bank vault, an investigator from the bank's insuror teams up with a woman police detective to solve the mystery of the money which to all outside appearances has just vanished. Tracking clues and interrupting other attempts by the Phantom Ruler to commit crimes, the protagonists round up enough evidence that they are not merely dealing with an ordinary crime ring. Eventually they discover the invisibility fluid and lamp, and the Phantom Ruler is killed when he trips over an open high-power electric cable he had laid on the floor of his den to do in the forces of law and order closing in upon him.
