If Twinkie was a military brat, his license plate would have a Japanese symbol that looks like a "Y" on the left side. Military members and their families with cars in Japan are required to have "Y" plates. See more »
Why'd you let me race your car? You knew I was gonna wreck it.
'Cause that's a lot of money.
I have money, it's trust and character I need around me. You know, who you choose to be around you lets you know who you are. One car in exchange for knowing what a man's made of? That's a price I can live with.

Got a free screening pass to see it 6-12, saw it with some car buddies, the dork I am took notes.
This movie had more semblance of a plot than the rest of the franchise, the action stayed fresh and actually flowed with the plot, and the characters actually had motivation this time! There weren't any HUGE glaring inaccuracies (other than daddy throwing sonny the keys to a car with NO ENGINE in it...) The three cameos in the film were well placed, though a bit campy at the very end. The cars and action sequences were amazingly choreographed, one even leaving my whole theatre clapping for the protagonist.
I give 8/10 because of low expectations, and being totally blown away when it was much better than I expected.
