I watched part of The Fast and the Furious 18 years ago. It was stupid. I actually like more the newer ones, the old ones are to ricer for me. And I will never forget all the useless phone calls I had to deal with after F&F came out FACEPALM. The industry would have remained far more tech based if it hadn’t been for the dumbing down of what we do via the F&F franchise. I’ve never seen past the second one. First two weren’t bad considering it was Hollywood’s view on the import racing scene in the year 2001. I remember the huge negative impact it had on the Austin scene. We could not even hang out at night in parking lots anymore with out being run off by cops constantly.

It might have been however it exposed performance and modifying your car which in turn got us all paid brother man lol. The movie is dumb, I got my first Dsm like a year before the movie came out but I’m willing to admit that it made me interested in cars because it made the car scene in my area big. Yes 90% were cheese balls(that’s what we called them) but I still raced them. That’s 18 Years of Fast Furious 2001-2019 8 films signature shirt. At 17yo I needed to find slow cars to race cause I worked part time and my parents didn’t buy me car parts.
Funny part is while scrolling through my feed, this thread popped up again today I quickly read “The Fast and the Furious 18” and assumed a new movie was being released. This reminds me of “I liked this band before they were cool and mainstream”. And a buncha old farts talking about how they were good at football in highschool and “glory days”. Maybe I’m 18 years too late, but anyone ever noticed in the movie Fast N Furious right before the first race Dominic Toretto turned on his Alpine system with the fat Alpine remote and his system looked more like a store display instead of an actual install??… Where are the box enclosers for the subs?? I wonder how much Alpine paid Universal Studios for that exposure??
