Perhaps the most repeated question I get is this one: How can I build a replica Fast and Furious car?   There isn't one answer to this question because obviously, it depends on which car you're trying to build. If you're trying to replicate one of the cars from any of the movies AFTER Tokyo Drift, it will be MUCH easier because most of the cars from Fast 4 onwards were little more than tires, wheels, mufflers and some parts needed to perform stunts.   So for the sake of this article, let's focus on the idea of building a replica of one of the cars from the first three movies. Spoiler alert: it'll be a multi-year project and will take tens of thousands of dollars and literally THOUSANDS of hours scouring the internet for every classified sale page on the internet - Ebay, Facebook marketplace, ModFinds, individual Facebook Classified pages and so on.   BUDGET: If you want to build a Supra replica (from the first movie)  or a GTR replica (from the second movie), you better have $100,000 cash in your hand, right now. And no, an 18-year-old kid is not going to get a $150,000 loan from a bank to build a 20-year-old movie
