Default I'M NOT GOING TO SEE FAST & FURIOUS 2

I'm not going for the simple reason that I am not a big fan of imports and I was very upset in part 1 when they destroyed that DODGE CHARGER at the end in FF1. I've seen the previews for FF2 when they show the 2 imports racing in between 2 tractor trailers without getting crushed, then when the Mustang comes behind them he gets smashed into pieces. I know its just a movie but I hate to see a muscle car get crushed like these two did.
My dream car would be a 87 Grand National capable of running 9'* in the 1/4

I'm with you man....not interested at all. Blue flames shooting out the back of a Mitsuibishi...who by the way shelled out millions of $$$ to have their cars in this movie.

Rice at its finest

But they make American cars look really bad in that movie. Horrible for our economy.

Oh they will smash the Camaro, and the Challenger, and the Mustang was a Saleen.

Talk about feeding more fuel to the fire for domestic drivers.

Saleen wouldnt donate the car and they can't wreck a limited production car. It was a New GT with a saleen body kit and looks package. That would be stupid to mess up a car that they make very little of. I also find it funny though that the charger in ff1 was the one on the movie blade and after the movie the video producers of blade sued universal for f'ing up the car. they actually won too!

I might see it, if someone pays for me. There'* others I want to see more than that. The first one was not bad. Some of the acting was a bit bad, but it'* just entertainment. And I like cars in general. But the trailers for the second are bad IMO. It looks like it will be one of those sequels that are worse than the first. But who knows.

The bad thing is, there will be a lot of people, those with rice and those without, that will see the movie and then go race like morons. They did it last year and I've never seen as many cars pulled over in my life. I'd go out and rack up some kills, but would probably get hit by one of the 'hotshot' ricers.
