This is a **** nice car :cool:
I'm sure some outdated people would be all upset about it, this is a nicely done car :cool:

Those of you unfamiliar with this movie car probably don't understand what all the hubbub is about, so we'll tell ya. Domestic guys are pissed because this very clean and very classic 'Stang has been outfitted with a treasure trove of Japanese tuning parts. We're not just talking about a GReddy sticker here or an ARC intercooler there, we're talking about the fact that the people at Universal (the movie company behind the film) yanked out the pony car's beloved American powerplant and shoehorned a Japanese engine under the hood.
Import guys are pissed because the Japanese engine in question is the RB26DETT, also known as the engine found in the holy grail of all Japanese performance cars, the Nissan Skyline GT-R. Import guys feel that this engine is the pinnacle of uber high-tech Japanese engineering, and to throw it in a 40-year-old ill-handling relic is nothing short of sacrilege.

Why do people get so mad about this? It's just a movie, and there's plenty more classic 'Stangs out there with American V8's.

even though i'd much rather see a V8 in that car, my only real complaint with it is the fart-can. everything else was done nicely untill they threw that eyesore on there
