Mad Max - Last V8 Interceptor Axle-hop Stop!
Met up with Justice, who runs Maxrockatansky.org and did a little bit of
filming near Lake Lewisville. Thought I'd throw in the axle-hop stop that
you see at the beginning of MM2: The Road Warrior. He doesn't throw it into
reverse, as many erroneously believe. It's this type of stop I demonstrate

Fast & Furious 4: Ford Gran Torino
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
What Clint Eastwood did for the 1972 Gran Torino in Gran Torino, Fast &
Furious will try to undo. Because in this movie, the very nastiest bad guy
— you know, the chief henchman who does the dirtiest deeds and dies just
before the big boss bad guy gets his — drives a '72 Gran Torino
The inspiration for the Gran Torino in Fast & Furious comes from a similar
Torino built for Dan Widmann at Steve Strope's Pure Vision Design — the
same shop from which emerged the Hammer Road Runner that's also featured in
the film. Strope brought Widmann's Torino to a casting session and a star
— well, a co-star — was born.
The one significant visual change between Widmann's Torino and the replicas
built for the film is that Widmann's car is blue, and the bad guy Torinos
were painted green. It seems that blue was already assigned as super-dreamy
Paul Walker's color in Fast & Furious, so the bad attitude character "Fenix
Rise" (played by Laz Alonzo) would have to wear green.
Little matter, however, as the Gran Torino looks dang good in green.
To portray Fenix's FoMoCo, the picture car department acquired six '72
Torino Sportsroof models and one '73. As with the Charger, some of the
stunt cars were fit with Chevy crate V8s and automatic transmissions, but
at least one of the cars was originally equipped with a 429 and four-speed
manual transmission. Five of the cars were either destroyed during
production or ripped apart for parts.
Among the Torinos destroyed was that 429 four-speed car. Sometimes evil
must be done in order to portray evil.
