Okay I was reading another forum and it said that they wrecked a Yenko Camaro with a big block, in addition to the Cobra R (might be kit). Anyone know?

My guess is they wrecked a camaro with yenko emblems, and a mustang with cobra r emblems. They might have a big budget, but I hope they aren't that stupid.

They rarely if at all use the real deal when it comes to cars in movies.
ie: The Mustang in Gone in 60 Seconds was a Shelby clone.

Bah dont think they would ruin those cars. To expensive when they can get a weak ole 6 banger stang and put the extra looky loo stuff on the outside.

The movie looks like its not going to be as good as the first one, but I'll go see it anyway. They really missed the boat, by not resigning vin diesel. Sorry, but I don't think that Tyrese is going to cut it for me.

Well, it wasn't even a real Saleen. They just sold that car on Ebay, take a look: F&F 2 "Saleen" I mean granted, the car is sweet as hell and for the price it sold on Ebay it seems like someone got a hell of a deal, but in the movie they are trying to pass it off as a blown Saleen in the same way that that they tried to pass of that N/A Eclipes as turbo'd.

And a Stangnet link talking about it: Link

THE CAR WAS PURCHASED BY UNIVERSAL STUDIOS AS A GT MODEL AND THEN SENT TO SALEEN WHERE THEY DID ALL THE CUSTOMIZING. I HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTS FOR THIS CAR AND THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL. THE CAR HAS 460 MILES IT IS IN MINT CONDITION. THE FOLLOWING ARE THE MODIFICATIONS SALEEN HAS DONE:

CANDY PAINT, BODY KIT, SUSPENSION WITH SPRINGS AND SHOCKS SWAY BARS, ROLL BAR, EMBLEMS, LETHER SEATS, MACH460 SYSTEM, EXHAUST, FRONT BRAKE SYSTEM, CHROME WHEELS,WHITE GUAGES, PRESSURE AND BOOST GUAGES. THE ONLY THING THAT REMAINED STOCK IS THE ENGINE.


thats from ebay, mabey i didnt word my post right, it was cusomized by saleen.

Another movie that didn't wreck the real thing was Vanishing Point, the main car is a 70 Challenger. At the end it gets driven into a bulldozer, but what real got driven into the bulldozer was a 67 Camaro. That wasn't very good though, the Challenger had the bubble hood, Camaro had a flat hood, quarter panels hump up too much on those camaros too, only thing that didn't look funny was the fact that they got the color right.

Is that the old movie with the guy and the fast white Mopar that the cops are after, and they're walking the Cat(erpillar)s down the ditch and they pull up on the road to block him off??

There's so many cool old Mopars I can't begin to keep them straight, I don't really know one from the other.

Edit: Okay I did my research, that's the movie, with a Challenger R/T
