Well I was over in downtown helping my buddy at his business detailing cars and throughout the day customers were telling us that when they went to lunch they were seeing all these roads blocked off and all these hooked up cars around so it ended up that not even a block away they were setting up a scene to be filmed. After work me and my buddy (work shirts still on) walked over passing all the barricades where the streets were blocked off (I guess the cops saw our shirts and thought we were part of the film crew) anyways we walked right on the set and saw all the cars beeing prepared for the scene. There were 2 duplicate R34 Skylines that were half blue half silver, 2 duplicated late model Supras in gold, 3 identical 3rd gen RX-7 in bright orange, and 2 duplicate pink S2000. It was so cool to be there. They had three streets blocked off and lit up with these pink, yellow, and blue 6 foot tubes of light. Kind of like black light style but not purple. Well we started talking to some dude there and he was telling us everything. Main character name "OJ" the scene they were setting up was R34 vs. Supra and one spins out. Pretty soon (in a couple days) there will be a bridge jump with some cars. He also said that DMX will be in the movie along with possibly Ludicris and some other rappers.... I have no idea why but whatever... that's all I saw because it started to rain and they stopped everything plus I was tired and wanted to go home. On the way out we saw three cars on a trailer (Yellow civic all stickered up, orange S14 with 97-98 conversion all riced out, and a blue eclipse and yes of course they all had huge aluminum wings!!!! hehe I took some pics of the 3 on the trailer but they came out bad because it was too dark. If people still want to see them then post and maybe I'll upload them anyway.

EDIT: Well I got to visit the set this time and watch them set up their bridge jump with the 3rd gen rx7 and Pink S2000. Nice shot will look cool on camera too. I took pics of some of the cars (R34 and Supra) and will post them soon. Keep checking the thread. I also took a pic with Craig Lieberman that dude is nice man and down to earth not what you would expect from some big time movie dude.

That's tight...When they film the first F&F here in So. Cal. in Westminster...I saw they were setting it up the T&K market place. They block off a few blocks...hehehe. I didn't get to see much though, it was more like just a drive by...

It's good to know what some (hopefully there is more) of the Skylines look like that are going to be in the movie. But what about the cast? Particularly the females! Any mention of what lovely ladies (if any) will be in the movie?

I am angry that they are using skylines for there new "cars"..I believe the Sykline is a true enthusiast car, not some ricer car that you buy to make it look "cooler" then other cars with flashy wings and body kits. Its a truly amazing performance car, not a Civic. It should've been left from fast and furious..Now ricer kids will be speaking about the skyline the same way as the civics...no knowledge of it, just desire to buy it and make it have nawwwws, with body kits and wings..

Well there was that yellow R33 from the first one and I never heard much talk about it but then again it wasn't the main car of the movie either.

Oh and I heard nothing about any ladies in the movie.

**DONOTDELETE**

Most people didn't know what that car was, unless they actually "know" cars. All the mainstream ricers knew where those RX7's and Supras n [censored] like that..I bet you, if you walk up to a typical ricer and ask him what the burgundy car that the chick drove...he wouldnt know..but it was a nice 240sx.

Yeah, I agree, that's one cool thing about the first movie we probably won't be able to say about this one. None of the more respectable cars were given any attention, just shown. I was kinda pissed right when the movie came out because of that, but when I saw the effect the movie had on all the high-school punks and rednecks I work with.. I'm glad. It doesn't sound like any respect is going to be kept in this one. Friggen ricers!

Everyone I talked to who saw the first one thought they were all hondas, prob same thing will happen this time. I personnally can't wait for it to be released, last time it was soo much funsitting in the theater parking lot watching all the kiddies destroying all their mommy and daddy's cars trying to do burnouts and race out of the lot, after awhile the cops were just lined up around the corner waiting for them. We lauged so hard we stuck around for the later show to let out so we could watch it all over again

SilverSR - that`s pretty damn funny!

Orange FDs.. cool http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/grin.gif! They look better in all black though..

PINK S2000? That`s just putrid.

Pink S2000 with a graphic on the door of a face.
The orange FD was also all stickered up. I'd say the cleanest of the cars was the Supra but maybe they hadn't gotten to stickering it up yet.

Oh but they do know. Well sorta. They thinkit looks different because it ad a "Full Sylvia Converzion" and all Silvias look like that. Like the kouki USDM 240's didn't have those lights or something http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif When I see that car I see a badass S chassis destroyed by someone who puked all over the side. Come to think of it, their vomit resembled some greek looking dude pointing at something. Weird. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif

i found it mildly disturbing that the fastest car in the first FatF was the F-150 lightning

i wonder if anybody will actually realize that little TV screen in the center consol of the R34s is stock....vin diesel will probably be playing playstation on it during the movie (or wait, was it nintendo that sponsered this film)

Vin Diesel realized he might actually be a good actor, considering his past movies (not including TFATF1) and his intense popularity. Because of this, he is not going to be in TFATF2. He is a good actor...have you ever seen Boiler Room? That was a very decent flick, infact that was a good movie. Damn, i think the only 2 carry overs from TFATF1 are Edwin and Brian Earl Spilner. http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smirk.gif Shiiiiit, now im really not going to see it.

Well I have owned Boiler Room long before FATF1 was even a glimmer in Rob Cohen's eyes but Vin Diesel not beeing in the sequel has absolutely nothing to do with him wanting to be a "good actor" he just asked for $20 million for the sequel and he got turned down. Pitch Black was decent, XXX was a little hacky stealing everything Bond and mixing it with generation X.

I bet he is. I think, since he will OBVIOUSLY understand our concern, you should tell him he mutualated the Blackbird, and if you can at LEAST take off the faux SiGNAL decal and APC stickers. And the NOPI ones....Please!!!!

Well, there's good news and bad news on the pics front. I did have my camera and Craig did let me snap multiple pics of all 4 main rides but I did have to promise I wouldn't put them up on the internet. Funniest $hit ever is that the pink S2000 has matching pink fur interior lol but a sweet graphic of an asian chick on the doors..... and the gold late model supra has a huge afro pick graphic along the sides of the car I'm guessing this car will be driven by either Ludicris or Tyrese. The 3rd gen RX-7 is probably the sweetest of the 4 rides. Scary part is the big aluminum wings..... LED Washer Nozzles and LED valve stems on the cars.... http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/shocked.gif http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/mad.gif http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/frown.gif yes this will only make the world of rice justified in sporting these LED pieces of crap even more often.

Everyone can hate me for this...

I got this from a friend at www.pdc-crew.com (http://www.pdc-crew.com):

This is, sadly, what's left of Blackbird. Blackbird was beautiful while it lasted.

AAAAAnd thank you Mav. I will jump out of my window for a 3rd time today!! I saw it earlier. So i jumped. But now that you told me that this is infact the remains of Blackbird, I jump again!

Hey look on the bright side, they took off the Fake SiGNAL decal and all the APC stickers!!!!!!!!!

Actually I think none of the cars in the movie are actually his car. They bought 3 or 4 R34's from Motorex to make clones so I think his car might still be looking the same. Wait for people to post pics from HIN Orlando and if his car is there then you'll know for sure.

Blackbird was painted blue and had the fake fuel filler doors added to the trunk... Blackbird (or what was left of it) was displayed at IAS back in April. Blackbird is NOT black anymore, so there is no way it is the same (unless they repainted it yet again from blue to black).
