anyone else see this? i thought it was pretty funny, he spent a 100,000 to get the jetta from the fast and the furious.

"ET: Got a new car?

FRANKIE: I got the Jetta from ' The Fast and the Furious'! It's pretty tripped-out [with] a PlayStation 2, DVD, VCR, Navigation System ... everything that was in the movie! You get a lot of attention in that car, with the strobe lights going, and the music blaring...fun!"

What the F**K. Where the hell is the sport in that. HE is nothing but a rich kid who wanted a fast car but did not want to earn his dues! I loved every hour I spent working on my car (god rest her soul) and every ounce of horse power it made was forged by my own blood sweat and tears!!!!!! GOD BLESS THE TRUE TUNERS!!!!!!!!

fuckin little prick doesn't even care about the car's performance- I read an interview in a magazine and when asked about the car all the mentioned were the DVD, Playstation and TVs :mad: :mad:
He also has a Caddilac Escalade (How he can see over the steering wheel beats the shit outta me
:p

He might have the car, but he probably cant reach the pedals. Not to mention the fact that hes not going to be racing anytime soon so we have nothing to fear... the roads are still ours...

frankie's jetta is insane. Im in the process of building an exact replica of the jetta. By october the outside will be the same. Of course it will be a long time until the inside is the same. right now the only modifications to the insider are a Neuspeed supercharger, 20lbs of dry NOS, intake, 2,500 dollar system.

Outside 18" white Motegi rims

yo he didn't pay 100,000 that punk paid 600,000 for that shit with that money i would a bought a ferrari and modify but he just wanted that car to pick up girls and even with that car he can't get the girls. :flipa:

HogieGT-R
08-08-2002, 08:55 PM
laughing his ass off while drivfing his jetta? please....he probably just wants it to go "i have the fast and the furious jetta and you don't" it's not the fact that he has the jetta that makes us pissed, it's the fact that he didn't really work for that car to be his "own" what i mean by that is that when a person modifies a car, he/she gets a connection and a certain pride that grows from creating an extention of their own imaginations...little frankie just bought the damn thing, not knowing about the parts that are really inside of the car, if the car starts to God forbid malfunction, he'll just take it to a mechanic that will give him the run-around instead of him understanding the car and taking care of the problem..that's why we're jealous...not because of the car because of the fact that none of his bodily fluids (blood, sweat, tears, etc.)have been spilled while under the bonnet of that jetta. there is no pride in that, only emptiness.

08-09-2002, 05:12 PM
ok ok, I know what you're saying, I hear you, i'm with you! But its just so pathetic how you're all like, oh he probably can't even see over the steering wheel!
Anyway maybe he knows more about the car since he bought it, maybe it was just a 'oh cool this car is from that movie' when he first got it! BUT surley he must know more about the car now he has it! I read that he also takes it to shows and stuff so he's not being selfish with it lol, although if it was mine i'd be rather selfish LOL!
I agree he has a shit load of money in his pocket but all actors do. We all know they get paid way too much, they probably even know it themselves but he's a cool guy, so I think you should just be nicer about what you say about him because you don't even know him!

I find it rather amusing that Frankie rolls in the jetta. I find it even more entertaining to see the people who build up their honda hatchbacks, and honda civics, and other japanese automobiles show their jealousy torwards frankie over an internet message board. Frankie doesn't care how much work went into building the car, or what the car can do, he only cares that he is a superior human being to the whole culture/world of japanese automobile street racing. While the rest of you street racers are living with your parents, investing all your money in cars that nobody is impressed with besides yourself and parents, and racing up and down the streets for small amounts of money, frankie is driving the ultimate street racing automobile, hanging out with beautiful women, and if the little bastard ever decided to race one of your automobiles you so proudly post pictures of on the internet, his jetta would blow it off the road. Frankie could care less about building up his car, or working on it, because unlike the people who spend their entire paycheck and time on their honda's, FRANKIE HAS A LIFE...

U guys are makin way too big a deal outta this. The kid is a 16 year old millionaire. Let him do what he wants, he earned his money. Hes a damned good actor too.

And 600,000 isnt a lot to pay for a car that was IN A MOVIE

HEY...
It's nice to have some female enthusiasts... :D But anyway... What are the Japanese tuners doing in a european section of the forum... And if your gonna bad mouth somebody who bought a european tuned car for a large amount of money... pleaz tell it to some of your Japanese tuner buddies... But just don't go bad mouthing him, especially if he might be one of the members of this site... OK!!!
PEACE :smoker2: :grey: :sun: :bandit:

what the f*ck is his point behind buying that car... I mean if he isnt even goiing to drive the way it was built (disconnecting the nos that sucks) then why doesnt he just go and buy his own damn jetta and put a body kit on? Second of all what the hell the fun in havin a car that powerful knowin you didnt have jack to do with it? Wheres the pride?

i agree, this thread is gettin everyone a little too upset. although it is kinda stupid to buy a car like that, i also would rather have less, but have done it myself. i dont think he even cares about the performance of the car... its just the fact that its a car from movie. and nowadays having a fixed up car is almost a trendy thing to do, which sucks for any REAL racer. but fuck it, let him do whatever the hell he wants.

and just outa curiousity, whoever that was that said frankie could have them anyday... gotta pic? not to be mean, just wondering what kinda person finds an ugly midget attractive.

and about going to the japanese retailed forums, thats bs. i just happen to have a honda, but im still an AUTOMOTIVE fan. i like cars in general. and stop taking it so personally, if some punk kid bought the supra or s2000, we'd still be talkin about him.

Ok first of all i wanna give you props for what your doing with your jetta. But whats you doin aint so right. It dont have Motegi wheels, it has Konigs. And it also doesn't have underbody neon kit. But i love what your doing. Also, can somebody hook me up with specs on that F&F Jetta. And soem websites with some nice pics of the Jetta on there. I wanting to do the same thing as you are but i cant do it without know ing what it has. And one more thing, you know the inside door panels and rear sparco seats that are custom made by i think stitchcraft. How are you going to do those things if there custom? well thanks.

Ya know I don't really care for the kid either, and I really hate that show, just a bunch of kids screaming at their parents.......BUT ya know, sure, he could have had a lot of REAL rides for that money, he could have tuned his own wheels to hell and back with that kind of money, whatever, the thing is though, to say he doesn't deserve it etc isn't right really.....after all it is HIS money however he came to have it, albeit bad acting or crappy sitcoms or whatever,,,,,,, he can do whatever he wants with it, regardless, it is his money.

I'd rather see him riding in that Jetta or his SUV than I would see the freakin THUGS that sell drugs and kill people and sing shit rap songs driving around in new wheels that cost more than my house.

Don't hate....congratulate.

ok #1 frankie you suck #2 you didn't tune the car so you can not take pride in the car #3 the looks good but you don't look good in it #4 maybe you should sell it to the person who made it wait give it back to them #5 you don't know the first thing about tuning you live in some warm place i live in great falls montana and actually work for my money and i have 4g in my car and i'm not stopping #6 the decal on your car will look better on my thats why i invested in buying it to make your car look bad.

Well I hope he's happy...that car is ugly and its an auto...how sad. BTW, why the hell would he spend so much $$ on a car that's not even his creation? That's what's cool about real tuners...everything is original. This little prick just wants to be cool...

If I had that kind of money, I would definately put some thought into putting together a truly nice car that was all mine.
