    No shit, after stealing a bunch of VCRs, and DVD combo TVs, taking out a horde of police SUVs with magnets, repeatedly crashing a land train, the gang straps a rocket-powered car to the roof of a cargo plane and blast off into space. (And no, that's not the complete level of crazy in the trailer.)

    Okay, so the posters have used all the primary and secondary colors, and now this one uses a whole rainbow.
    For part 10?

    Van Diesel obviously got off on voicing Groot and wants to go full Guardians on this shit.

    Apparently he's a D&D fan, but I imagine his campaigns go like this:

    I mean, it was already obvious that Fast and Furious is a science fiction franchise with how how the vehicles operate, this really doesn't surprise me.

    I have yet to watch any of these, I keep thinking maybe when they've finished making them, but it'll hard to find something to watch them on after the heat death of the universe.

    Tokyo Drift was the best one in the franchise. Change my mind.

    No, no, they aren't.

    They plan to, but nothing has really happened since 2015.

    Also, their new website is just a placeholder.

    In other words, I'll believe it when I see it.

    They’ve been held up by failure of NHSTA to update the rules for boutique car builders. That literally just happened a short while ago. The company’s been in business for a couple of decades as a DeLorean restoration shop and they have a bunch of NOS parts. I forget how many cars they said that they could build with the number of parts they have on hand, but I think it’s in the high double digits.

    :lol: So they're basically not new DeLoreans, they're just going to reassemble them from original unused parts. I'm assuming they'll have to find an engine, but I doubt even a new engine will help with the design flaws of that vehicle.

    Don't get me wrong, I loves me a DeLorean. Just wish they would use the original look but basically reengineer the thing from scratch.

    What, the fact they tend to disappear to random times when they hit 88? :chris:

    I won't try to change your mind because I've never seen any of them and have no desire to.

    Kinda sorta. Here's an article about what the rules require. The engines in DeLoreans were bog-standard Volvo engines, and the issue with the cars, from what I understand, is that the alternator and electrical system weren't up to snuff. Fix that, and you've got a decent car.

    Are you ready for the "fun" part? There's a huge debate in collector car circles about what constitutes an "original" vehicle. In one of his columns for Popular Mechanics, Jay Leno talked about seeing an ad for a car show where there was going to be seven models of a particular car on display. This was amazing since the company only ever built five of those particular models. The other two were assemblages of parts that had been scrapped from the five that had been wrecked and because the paperwork surrounding all the cars has been so jumbled that nobody knows which car was built by the company, and which ones were built using scrapped parts.

    Right now, there's a fucking huge debate about what constitutes an original Tucker. I won't go into the details, but suffice it to say that there are people hugely butthurt over the idea that something built with original Tucker parts, but doesn't match any of the Tucker concepts, is somehow inauthentic. I'm sure that once the company starts pumping out new DeLoreans the same kind of debate is going to arise.

    We had fast and furious in space. It was called The Chronicles of Riddik.

    Why can't they do more riddic and not this. It is still just as imaginary, but at least it was cooler in space.

    The only Riddick movie worth a damn was Pitch Black. Everything after that was hot garbage.

    Pitch Black was really good for space horror, but I find chronicles to be a decent action/superhero flick. I never really gave a shit about the fast and the furious.

    If you can get a DeLorean up to 88 mph than you have the power of Jesus and Anime on your side because those things struggle to drive 55.
