The Fast and The Furious - Jesse "Reunites" with MKIII Jetta!

Where are our The Fast and The Furious Fans at? Do you remember the white MKIII Jetta that Jesse (or actor Chad Lindberg) built and raced against a $100,000 S2000? Not only did they reunite, but he was repping the same style, black nail polish and clothing, the he did in the movie. However, this isn't the true car from the movie. According to sources:

Update (Aug 9, 2017 6:48 p.m. PST): At first I was not sure what possessed Canadian speedshop GAB Eurosport to create such a painstakingly legit-looking movie car replica here, but the car’s designer Dominic Dubreuil got a hold of me and explained that he and Scott Centra, who apparently made the original movie car, collected the parts and orchestrated the execution of this project while GAB did the actual assembly work.

Dubreuil told me over Instagram messages that the car’s mission is actually to get Jesse’s character back on people’s radar and get him into another Fast & Furious movie as some of you (jokingly?) predicted in the comments.

I guess that’s an important distinction to make too– he’s reuniting with the car’s character, not an actual movie car.
Still pretty cool though! Share your thoughts below.
