    Neat video on the Eclipse from The Fast and The Furious.



    I appreciate that he advised against the idiotic "danger to manifold" and floorboard bullshit, but the producers overruled him.

    In a way, I agree. It's now remembered for its cheeseball'ness. Much like Commando, its ridiculous antics are a huge part of its legacy. Had TFaTF been a more serious car movie, we would have loved it in 2001 as car guys, but the general public may not have latched on the way they did, and we wouldn't have the legitimately fun and entertaining (though still over the top unrealistic) action movie franchise we do now.

    My friends and I went to see that movie just to see the Charger scene! We all did massive burnouts leaving the movie theater once it was over. Like 3 or 4 Mustangs and a whole bunch of 3rd and 4th gen Fbodies.

    It's so weird to think about, but the cars in that movie are now 20+ years old. So much of that stuff hasn't been made for that long. It'd be hard enough finding that era Eclipse that isn't beat to shit, let alone specialty parts from that era.
    Cool video

    I remember arguing with friends about how absurd the movie was, all the shifting, all the inaccuracies.

    I love it now.

    The first time I saw it, I leaned over to my buddy and was like "Did that Eclipse just shift 8 times?", he goes "dude I lost track after 4....""

    I like the fact that the 10 second drag race lasted 4 minutes
