1970 Dodge Charger R/T

The Fast and The Furious I

The Dodge Charger is one very popular "American Muscle Car" model that is used in the movie and TV industry. Probably 90% of car-themed films have this car in it. The most famous “star car” identified with this model would probably be General Lee from the Dukes of Hazzard. General Lee is a 1969 Dodge Charger colored orange with the [01] painted on both sides of the door and a confederate flag painted on the roof. Another film, that this car model played a major role in is Blade’s (Wesley Snipes) vehicle.

For the TFATF (The Fast and the Furious), we have here a black 1970 Dodge Charger R/T fitted with a turbocharger. This was driven by Dom Toretto (played by Vin Diesel). Of course, the Fast and the Furious movie that we are talking about here is the first installment out of the current 3 TFATF movies. The car saw action in the last portion of the movie when Dom had to go after the villain then raced Brian (Paul Walker). Too bad, that the Dodge Charger got wrecked after hitting a truck when Dom was racing Brian.

BTW, my collection shown here is a 1:24 scale. It also came with a Dom Toretto figure. I did not include the figure anymore when I took these shots. The details are pretty impressive. (Notice the plates between the real car and the model car?)
