Tuna, No Crust: Chevrolet Forum’s ‘Fast and Furious’ Rides
If we were gonna cast a new Fast and Furious flick using nothing but member rides, here is what it would look like.
Let’s face it – we all love the Fast and Furious movies. As over the top and unrealistic as they might be. Those ridiculous stunts, huge wings, and unnecessary shifting just keep us coming back for more. But the enduring movie franchise has also had a huge effect on the automotive hobby itself. Suddenly, everybody wanted to own a cartoonish ride like the colorful characters of F&F drove.
That includes many of our own members here at Chevrolet Forum. So we wondered – if we wanted to cast a new Fast and Furious movie using nothing but cars from our members, could we do it? And what would it look like? So we hit the threads on the lookout for anything that resembled the kind of car that Dom, Letty, or Johnny Tran would love to drive.
And we immediately came across the perfect ride for one of our movie’s female antagonists. Chevy_Girl_1982‘s 1993 Chevy Cavalier has everything you could want in an F&F movie car. Purple paint, pink accents, ground effects, a wing, and aftermarket wheels. And the pink leopard print interior is a nice touch for that inevitable, dramatic in-car closeup.
And of course, you need some good old American muscle for Dom to drive. EvansBlue‘s dad has the perfect candidate in this 1981 Camaro. It’s got plenty of get up and go for the hairless lead man, with a bored out 350 and a host of performance parts. All it needs is a giant blower sticking out of the hood and we’re set.
Of course, we gotta have plenty of turbo cars. In lieu of the many imports present in every F&F movie, we present to you SuperSonic‘s 2013 Chevy Sonic LT. The 1.4 liter turbo will undoubtedly provide us with the necessary turbo noises we need. With a little modification, of course.
And we might even throw in insanika‘s Sonic for good measure. These two cars can be driven by brother/sister twins for a little bit of a plot twist.
bsbllscnd970‘s Cobalt checks all the boxes with an aftermarket turbo, lowering springs, and gold wheels. It just needs a bigger wing. Much, much bigger.
And of course, our movie wouldn’t be complete without some massive truck driving baddie. This lifted Silverado is just the trick for a chase scene through some crowded streets (or in an off road scene). All it needs is a huge brush guard to move the rides of innocent bystanders out of the way.
Do you have any suggestions for our Fast and Furious movie? Head over the the forums and let us know what you’d like to see!
