This old publicity shot of the film car shows the emblem on the rally hood.

That's cool, I think it is the first time I have ever saw that. For some reason I thought that was a 6 pack car (the one in the movie).

The first car in the first film was made out to be a 4406, then in part 2 he had to build a whole new car because the first car was sold off many years before they shut the second film.

I originally was planning on doing the part 1 car, I was contemplating on doing the fender flares and everything... and then a 426 landed in my hands and the rest is history. I was able to buy the engine at a crazy price because my good friend owned it and then it hit me that I should build the part 2 car that was supposed to be a Hemicuda in the film but was only a small block. That first film car is awesome and even cooler than the one Im building in a few ways. Would make a killer Day 2 car.
