nah, a lot of cops now drive chargers. They won't come down any harder on other chargers than they do now.


...unless you drop it and add a huge wing to it.

The rumor is true. :yes:

Be on the lookout for SE's and SXT's with a bunch of stickers, coffee can exhaust, and airplane wings on the back after the movie comes out. :)

As much as I hate the idea of that happening to the Charger......looking at the big picture it will drive more aftermarket vendors to create stuff for the Charger......thus preventing the fate of the Magnum from happening to us.

What will prevent the Charger from going the way of the Magnum is management spending money on continous refinement and advancement of the design.

Car companies always think that once a car is successful they can spend their money on other crap instead of R&D. We all know the areas of the LX platform that need improvement - they need to work on those areas.

Um, Chargers with wings and coffee cans? Is the price of advancement worth this?

Uhhhhh....coffee cans is a bit much. Wings...every Charger that drifts NOW has a big wing...so that won't be a big stretch.

What people need to remember is that the Charger is already a slightly elite vehicle (think 350Z and EVO VIII). A LOT of kids that would do that crap can't afford a Charger. And by the time they could, they would've (hopefully) outgrown it. A base SE is still high teens USED and like low-mid 20's new. So, don't expect to see anything TOO wild.

I think the most we would see is more kits and more "upbadging". That's all assuming the Charger has a MAJOR role in the movie and it stays recognizable. I mean, there was a Skyline R33 RHD in the first movie and nobody recognized. It wasn't even kitted. Just had that warrior vinyl crap (the skinny raspy voiced dude drove it from Dom's crew). Until they riced one out in the opening-ish scene of 2F2F, nobody was hip to what a Skyline was. And, remember, that was more NFSU hype than anything else.

Also, (i know it's a lot of alsos) kids were ricing civics before F&F came out. More bootleggers (walmart, Pep Boys, APC, etc...) just jumped on the bandwagon to make rice more accessible.

I've said all that to say I HIGHLY DOUBT that Chargers will pick up a "rice" vibe from the movie...more so than it is now. I don't really expect to see much difference. I don't think we have to worry too much.

.....as well as a VW Beetle to the left of it. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are in talks for the 4th movie, and it is speculated that Tyrese Gibson and Lucas Black will make an appearance.

when the hell did cops ever pound on "ricers" in Cali? I haven't heard anything about it out here in Southern Cali.

the only time I remember cops doing anything serious, is back in the days when they started shutting down illegal racing in certain locations. they impounded as many cars as they can but that was before and after fast and furious movie.
