Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Opens Friday, April 3!!!
In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere
near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter
if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a
movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in
order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the
cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes.
In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car
coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop
in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of
mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that
would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen
cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to
ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts;
and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible.
Using documentation from the production's picture car department and
in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of
fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this
year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and
trucks of Fast & Furious.

Driving the 1970 Charger From Fast Five - Inside Line
This is the defining, iconic car of the Fast & Furious movies: Dominic
Toretto's 1970 Dodge Charger. It first showed up back in 2001's The Fast
and the Furious, was an integral part of the story in 2009's Fast & Furious
and it's back again for Fast Five. Along the way it has rolled after
hitting a big green semi, been rebuilt and gone from glossy to flat black.

Fast New Shelby Mustang GT500 Full Test
FULL Mustang GT500 COVERAGE
It's something like trying to drive the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 on a
roller-coaster, only there are no steel tracks to keep you from slithering
off the pavement and ending up in a flaming heap of 540-horsepowerMustang.
You can't even see where you're going, really. Hard on it, the GT500's rear
tires begin spinning just as you can see nothing but sky in the windshield.
You're on top of the hump at the entrance to Infineon Raceway's Turn 6, and
as your stomach and both right-side tires go weightless, you start a long,
long dive to the left, sliding sideways all the way down the hill and
around the 180-degree corner.
The Shelby GT500 is so torqued up with the cornering force from the
low-profile 19-inch tires and the drive from the supercharged V8 that you
can practically hear the welds popping in the chassis. But something is
different this time — palms are not slick with sweat, tires are not
threatening to let go at the most inopportune moment and steering left in
order to go right is a joy and not a reflex of self-preservation.
The 2010 Ford Shelby GT500 gets 2 mpg more on the EPA highway cycle this
year. The Ford engineers are really proud of this. But every time we make
another lap and slide down Turn 6, we have our doubts that fuel economy is
what this car is about.
Serving Our Inner Adolescent
We're behaving like adults as the Ford engineers tell us all about the 2010
Ford Shelby GT500, even as we hear a couple of the cars making shake-down
runs on the quarter-mile strip at Infineon Raceway a few hundred feet away.
And in many ways, the GT500 itself is trying to act more like an adult,
casting aside the muscle-bound character of the 2007 Ford Shelby GT500.
As the Ford people tell us, they started with the limited-production 2008
Ford Shelby GT500KR, the exclusive (1,700 examples built) and
revenue-enhancing (MSRP $79,995) Mustang produced last year. And aside
from a few fewer Shelby badges (the KR had many to spare), the GT500 is
like the KR in almost every way, except it's built at the Mustang plant in Flat Rock, Michigan,
rather than at the Shelby facility in Las Vegas.
You can tell as soon as you open the new GT500's hood, complete with
hot-air extractors. The supercharged and intercooled DOHC 5.4-liter V8 with
its truck-style iron block is still in place, but now it carries a conical
air filter in its own sealed cold-air box behind the left-side headlight,
an innovation that increases airflow while resisting power-sapping heat
soak. For the GT500, this new cold-air intake required the migration of the
iconic Cobra badge on the grille from the left side to the right side.
Fast & Furious 4: Chevy Chevelle SS454
FULL FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
At the end of the first The Fast and the Furious film, Dominic Toretto (Vin
Diesel) is seen driving off in a pristine, red 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS454
coupe. Few noticed. However, it isn't a detail overlooked by Fast & Furious
picture car coordinator Dennis McCarthy, whose long Southern California
hot-rodding career includes quite a few of Chevy's finest midsize cars.
So when it came time to put Dom back in the driver seat, the first car that
sprang to McCarthy's mind was that Chevelle. And with Dom already in that
Chevelle in the first film, McCarthy's logic was impossible for Director
Justin Lin and the producers to deny.
In Fast & Furious, the Chevelle undergoes a transformation. At the
beginning of the film, the car is red with black stripes and in essentially
stock condition, cowl induction hood and all. Later, Dom takes the car and
twists it into a nasty street racer covered in primer. Here we're dealing
strictly with the car as it appears in red. And when it's red, it's stock
except for its aftermarket 18-inch wheels.
The production hit eBay and the classifieds looking for Chevelles.
Eventually McCarthy acquired two well kept and very real big-block-powered
1970 Chevelle SS coupes to portray Dom's classic ride. Both were original
SS396s and the primary hero car was an original four-speed. The backup was
Then McCarthy and team essentially left them alone. Since action with the
car in this condition was limited, both cars survived intact and are now in
Ford Gran Torino 1972 Part 1/2 (Muscle Car HD)
Make sure to watch part 2.
Here is the blog I created for my 72: http://fordtorino72.blogspot.com
Here is my facebook Torino group:
This one is for all the Gran Torino owners and admirers out there. The
slideshow is all about the 72 Sport FastBack model which is in my opinion,
one of the most good looking muscle car around. I love the aggressive
nose, the large muscular hips and the fastback with its rear window being
almost horizontal. This car has been starring in the latest Clint Eastwood
movie and the last Fast & Furious 4. Enjoy the ride, make sure you watch
in HD and spread the 2 words...Gran Torino. One last thing, If any Torino
owners or photographers in this video wants their pictures to be credited
in the description, it will be my pleasure.
