would you look at that?

The Grand National? They are classy, comfy, quiet, and your mother would be pleased. They are also quick, the last two years were hard to come by because the Secret Service and FBI were buying them by the droves. I had one for a very short time.

The Irishman - everyone talks about the amazing cast of actors and the de-aging tech but the real amazing cast they put together are the cars, especially that Hudson Hornet

The 50's and 60's cars are easy to find, the 70's get a little tougher because they're not as collectible and they rusted away at the drop of a hat. I say 50's and 60's are easy to find, that doesn't mean it would be easy to talk the collector into loaning it to a studio. :headshake It would take a pile of money and bulletproof insurance. I saw several of those Hudsons last summer, I'm fond of them because a '51 Hudson gave me my first ride over 100 mph. :D

Surely at some point it becomes more financially feasible to just build a replica?

It would be very unusual for a particular car to be necessary for a movie, maybe the story of Henry Ford or Tucker, even a sequel would only have to be close. Now with CGI they can fake almost everything. ;)

How about all those fiberglass T-Buckets running around?

Fine if you want to make a movie about hot rod T-buckets.

Is there anything else?

xoxoxoBruce 12-25-2019 12:29 AM

Yes, plenty of period pieces like The Irishmen.

Or this movie.

The Irishman...Ever seen a mob movie? Save yerself 3 hours. Outside of the aging/de-aging effects, The Irishman is every mob movie ever made.

The aging/de-aging effects are impressive at times, though.

Also, Robert De Niro's character is 6'4" tall. De Niro is about 5'8", tops.

Not since the Ferrari hit 2nd gear...

BigV 12-27-2019 01:14 PM

Who wins second gear is a pretty good fight.

Who wins the second turn...not so much.

That modified 454 Chevelle would walk on the Ferrari in a straight line.
But turns... fugetaboutit.
