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.

Dodge Charger 1968 blown hemi
this is Nick suckow's car in September 2008 before it was stolen. If you
have any information about this dodge charger please let me know.
http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/33732019.html# Back in 1984,
high-schooler Nick Suckow bought himself a '68 Dodge Charger. He was gonna
fix it up and roar down the road. Nick was born a gearhead. A hot rod. From
the first time he drove, he drove hard. The redline was always at hand.
When he joined the Army out of high school and shipped to Germany he got
hooked on the autobahn, where you could ease over to the left lane, stomp
the foot-feed flat, and shoot, they just let you go. "Fast," Nick likes to
say, "isn't the same as reckless." All that racing around, and then life
served up a grim little joke: The day Nick Suckow wrecked - the day his
life changed forever, the last day he ever stood on his own two feet - he
was going 35 miles per hour with his seatbelt on. He'd been married two
weeks. He and his wife were on their way home from their Wisconsin
honeymoon, making the run back to Texas in Nick's Gran Prix. They were
towing a rusted-out Ford Bronco - Nick always had his eye out for a cheap
beater, and he had found one up north. On a rough stretch of road Nick
crawled in the Bronco to keep it straight. The front tire hooked a pothole.
The tie rod snapped. The seat belt broke. He landed in the ditch. The
Bronco landed on his neck. Nick says he remembers the sun in his eyes. Then
the darkness closing in. A lot of years, then. Hospitals. Home. Hospitals.
The marriage ended. Back to Wisconsin. Rehab, and more hospitals. The speed
demon, not going anywhere fast. But eventually he had them drag that
Charger out. Arranged to get it in the shop. Whenever he had a little
money, he'd get some work done. "They whittled away at it," he says. "I
told my mom, if I die, dump my ashes in the fuel tank, and I'll go down the
drag strip one last time." Seventeen years. Seventeen years of learning how
to live from the neck up. Seventeen years of whittling. Hed show you the
latest pictures - a quarter panel here, a shot of primer there, a couple
tires. He'd get down to the shop, supervise in person when he could. He
couldn't run the wrenches, but he could run the show. He'd sneak out for a
little speed fix sometimes - once a paraplegic friend strapped Nick's chair
to a motorcycle sidecar and they blew down the road, one good pair of arms
between'em. Nick says it was good to feel the wind on his face. On a sunny
day in October of 2006, Nick Suckow's pals helped him slide from one set of
wheels into another. They strapped him in the passenger side, and you could
see the anticipation on his face, even behind the mirrored shades. The car
cruised out of the lot, and then picked up speed, the blower making a Mad
Max whine as the wheels warmed to the road. After a nice easy ride, the
Charger pulled to a stop on an isolated little stretch of blacktop. There
was a quiet moment, before the driver wound that 426 fuel-injected blown
Hemi up tight. Then Nick Suckow gave the nod and went fishtailing down the
blacktop on a journey that had never really ended.
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.

Fast & Furious 4: BMW M5
MORE FAST & FURIOUS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Every Fast & Furious film has to have at least one over-the-top street race
with multiple cars careening along wildly, putting the lives of the drivers
(and anyone else who happens to be on the street at the time) in mortal
danger. And when it comes to mortal danger, what better car to face it in
than a BMW M5?
Fortunately for Fast & Furious, the 400-horsepower, V8-powered E39
generation (1998-2003) M5 is still a 5 Series sedan and acquiring and
redecorating much cheaper 528i and 540i models was easy. So the production
bought three old 540i sedans and four 528i models and redecorated them with
orange and black paint and 19-inch wheels. Of these seven BMWs, six were
destroyed. That includes three dropped off a bridge onto a road down below.
The M5 was another car that just seemed to emerge naturally during the
casting process — there wasn't anyone who didn't want the big, powerful
BMW in the show. And some design inspiration obviously came from German
tuning house Lumma Design's CLR 500 R-S version of the current E60 M5 that
was shown during 2007.
Of all the cars in the film, this one may be the least believable because
of all its body roll during the action scenes. It looks like an M5 with the
swaybars disconnected. Or a 528i with M5 front fenders.
