I saw the Leone flicks in normal theaters...  So they ain't making this list but, here we go!

Crippleds Avengers
The Five Fingers of Death
Master of the Flying Guillotine
The Kid With The Golden Arm
Superfly
Shaft
Hitman
Dolemite
36th Chamber of Shaolin (Master Killer)
The Streetfighter

Now, on my list I only including flix I saw at places like The Jefferson Theater, which was just below 14th st on Third Avenue in Manhattan.

I'm not counting things I saw in regular theaters or in other media.

I love Kill Bill because it is a tribute to Grindhouse, but it was an event flick, not a grinder.   He had a budget!   I did go see both Kill Bill's as a double feature at The New Beverly out here in LA, which is QT's favorite theater.   It's not a grindhouse, more like a Greenwich Village type art/neighborhood theater.

You want to think so go ahead.  It's lovingly inspired by grindhouse flicks, but it ain't one.   BTW, the Dollars stuff mostly played in art houses, believe it or not in NYC.

The Jefferson theater used to show Kung Fu/Blaxploitation double features.   They were a blast.  I think I saw Fiver Fingers of Death (King Boxer) with Truck Turner.

I haven't really seen any films that could be termed "exploitation" films to the best of my knowledge.  Are there any that are good movies in their own right....not because of nostalgic appeal or the "It's so bad, it's funny" appeal?

FOXY BROWN is the more "laid back" of the two and is more outrageous. The more famous of the two, Brown gets revenge for her boyfriends slaying recruiting some Black Panther type muthers to help in her revenge. The ending is classic. Pam gives the girlfriend of the main villain a very special "gift". Pam gets raped, beaten and injected with heroin throughout. One guy gets chopped up in an airplane propeller. The exploitation element is high.

COFFY is more serious although no less violent. Here, the plot is similar. Pam gets revenge for her sisters death who overdosed on drugs by killing off the criminals responsible. A bit more of a mean streak. One cool scene sees Pam indulge in a 3 on 1 fight. She evens the odds by having put razor blades in her afro! Another particularly brutal scene involves the torture death of Thalmus Rasthula who plays a pimp. Sid Haig returns only this time as one of the main villains. COFFY was filmed in 73 and FOXY BROWN in 74. Director Jack Hill prefers COFFY over the other picture. Another CLASSIC grindhouse film directed by Hill and starring Grier and Haig(as lovers fighting in a revolution!) is THE BIG BIRD CAGE also starring former PRICE IS RIGHT girl Anitra Ford who also starred in another exploitation favorite INVASION OF THE BEE GIRLS with big William Smith.

Is there a decent, cheap box set of these sorts of titles?

Here's the link to the thread I started but abandoned. There's even more listed here.

There's a FOX BOX from MGM that has FOXY BROWN, COFFY, SHEBA, BABY and maybe one other. Most of these can be found for $10-$20. Some are available only as dupes however. There's no way a movie like MANDINGO or DRUM will ever get a legit US DVD release (although Paramount did release MANDINGO to VHS in the mid 80s). Not in this PC climate today. I was shocked that GOODBYE UNCLE TOM could be bought at Best Buy(!) sandwiched in the middle of Blue Undergrounds MONDO CANE BOX. Possibly the most incendiary film ever made.

I suggest reading up on the titles before you rent/buy. I gather many of the members here wouldn't be interested in these sorts of things normally. At least to get a better idea what you're going to see. I remember a friend that was so enamored with Tarantino's films but couldn't be bothered to see where his inspirations sprang from. A lot of QT's dialog exchanges come from these movies too.
