2000 BMW 528i, 2001 BMW 330CiC
A lot of interesting info in there (if it's right, that is!) Turns out the guy driving the Charger was not even an actor, but a stunt man named Bill Hickman. At one point, he lost control of the Charger though and hit a camera position, smashing the fender.
It also says they used 2 Chargers and 2 Mustangs. One Charger was wrecked in the finale, and then the other three were scrapped and written off.
...there were over 300 Chargers used during the series run! They weren't all trashed though. In fact, there are a few people in on of my internet Mopar clubs that have leftover General Lee's, with Warner Bros documentation and everything.
I went to The Fast and the Furious web site but then thought better of it--I'm still getting spam for (ahem) marital aids from the last site I linked to from here.
I notice no one's mentioned the original Charger, the '66-67 model. Perhaps it's because as one magazine said it looked like the box the '68 Charger came in.
I had a '66 Charger I bought from the alleged original owner. 318, light green, the only option was Torqueflite. They were boxy but had a great interior--full instrumentation, console, "wood" wheel, buckets, nice vinyl upholstery. Sporty and tasteful, almost GM-like. I wouldn't mind having one now.
I don't think I've ever seen a '66 or '67 that didn't have that huge taillight broken in at least one place. A nice taillight must be impossible to find.
I wonder if a 440 would fit..........
