    The green car Paul Walker drives at the begining is a Mitsubishi Eclipse. The one Vin Diesel races in the begining is an Mazda RX7. The orange car they rebuild is a Toyota Supra. The one Rick Yune drives at race wars is a Honda S2000. The black muscle car from the end is a Dodge Charger. The cars used in the heists are Honda Civics. The pickup Paul Walker drives delivering parts is a Ford Lightning. That's all I can remember right now.

    Remembered a couple more. Ja Rule's car was an Acura Integra and Noel Gugliemi's car (Hector) was a Honda Civic hatchback.

    And the guy playing Playstation during the big street race is one of the editors from Super Street magazine, and the car is a Nissan Skyline. Heh, not too many of those in the states.

    Actually the car with the ps in it is a integra, The skyline in the Movie is the Yellow car that one of Vin Diesel's friends drives.(i forgot the name had) the reason I know the other car wasn't a skyline is that the steering wheel is on the left and the one Yellow one is on the right. Other cars are a Nissan maxima, and a VW Jetta. Vin's siter also had a integra, and I forgot what his GF drove I have to watch it again.

    the GF is driving a Nissan 240sx. The PS car is a white integra (I think). The schoolgirl outfitted asian chick gets out of a widebody MR2.

    It does look like a Integra, I am not sure though, The body kit and head lights r throwing me off. If it is a integra it's a older model type R. If not I have no idea. can't tell!!!

    ...and don't forget the Volkswagon Jetta... it's not my favorite, but it did play a part in the movie.

    What didn't they use more real muscle cars in this movie? Cars such as a new Trans Am or Mustang or Vette. [​IMG]
    I have a '99 Trans Am so I'm a bit biased here.

    Nice car Dave [​IMG] I have a 2001 Grand Prix GTP and I love it! It would be nice to see more of the American made cars other than the Lightning but the movie is based on the import drag scene. That's why I have a copy of Gone in Sixty Seconds [​IMG]

    Don't get me wrong I love muscle cars, But that Modded skyline could probhibly kill all the cars in that movie (except Vin's car at the end). Even a Trans am. I just came back from Japan. I saw a skyline doing 10.32 seconds. Please don't take the wrong way, I am just saying if you mod ANY car correctly( not what these 17 year olds drive) Then you can make any car a 10 sec.

    With enough nitrous you could make a saturn run 10's [​IMG]
    But I do agree about the skyline, that is one car I would LOVE to see in the states.
