    I don't see many movies in the theaters these days but this one I may have to make time for.

    As for Damon, I'm not going to judge him in this role until I've seen it. He might not be the first actor I would have envisioned for Shelby's character but hey, he's a world class actor... it's his job to ACT and convince others he is someone he is not. So we'll see how well he pulls it off. Then if it's shitty I'll say it was mistake.

    Matt Damon lol.

    This is the same guy who wants to ban firearms, yet amassed a majority of his wealth romanticizing firearms in movies.

    Could not agree more.

    Any Hollywood asshat that made $$$$$ from using guns in movies has no soapbox to lobby for gun control.

    That is one of my major points but I did not want it to go down a political path for fear of the wrath of Karch.

    He is a limousine liberal of the worst kind, like most of them. Use weapons to make money, surround themselves with armed security but for the great unwashed, no guns.

    I'm sure he is on board with the green new deal and would like to know his position on ICE vehicles.

    Thanks for bringing it up ol dude.

    The more I see him in this role the more it makes me want to take a shit.



    Before there was Carolla, Dempsy, McQeen, Hackman, Jenner, Preistly and Newman there was this guy:

    James Garner

    He stared in the 1966 John Frankenhiemer's Movie "Grand Prix" and he drove and co owned several racing teams and was a accomplished driver as well.

    Check out this gem:

    The Racing scene



    It may not have the commercial appeal of FovsFe and I hope you guys enjoy it.

    Look at the opening credits of the drivers it was a who's who of racers and mechanics from that time period. Scooter Patrick crushes it in the opening minutes with his dialogue with Garner. I can only image what a princess like Damon would do getting lambasted like that. Remember Garner was a major star at the time in both movies and TV and Patrick is tooling on him every chance he gets.

    By all accounts, James Garner was the true definition of cool.

    Matt Damon has some big shoes to fill.

    Carroll was know to be a 'Gritty' individual
    with quite the sense of humor.

    I believe that George Lucas was a member of one
    of his Cobra pit crews at one time.

    Carroll was still licensing people to build Cobra's
    when he died.

    Everyone had to have those Goodyear Tires on them.
    That and a certain mag wheel was 'The Look'.

    Goodyear did not want to continue to build the tires.
    So they would not take the orders from his licensee's.

    So a couple of times a year Carroll would get on the
    phone with someone 'Upstairs' and the tires would
    get built..lol

    -------------------------------------------------

    Some quotes from Carroll Shelby:

    There is never enough horsepower......just not enough traction.

    Yesterday's History. Tomorrow's a Mystery. So live for today.

    Horsepower sells cars, torque wins races.

    If you don't go do what you wanna do, you're just bullshitting yourself.

    Cheers

    Calculating the valve curtain area
The following equation mathematically defines the available flow area for any given valve diameter and lift value:
Area = valve diameter x 0.98 x 3.14 x valve lift
Where 3.14 = pi (π)
For a typical 2.02-inch intake valve at .500-inch lift, it calculates as follows:
Area = 2.02 x 0.98 x 3.14 x 0.500 = 3.107 square[Contact UsArchiveTop

    Very good. They went a little sappy at the very end, but still a great movie. The racing scenes were certainly 'Hollywood' but that is to be expected.

    Looking at the promo's I noticed lots of CGI, which I hate. Big Question, how was nancy pants Damon in the role as Shelby? They should have selected Vince Vaughn.

    I get you don't like Damon because of his liberal views, but I don't get seeing him as a nancy. You have seen the Bourne films right? The Green Zone? Invictus? Elysium? The Departed? I think he did a great job in the roll, though I only know Carroll Shelby from what I've read obviously.
    I love Vince Vaughn in comedic roles. To me he will always be Trent from Swingers or Wes Mantooth from Anchorman. I have a hard time with him in dramatic roles. Season 2 of True Detective was a great example of that. I could never picture him in a 'Jason Bourne' type roll.
    Christian Bale crushed it though. He got skinny for the role and his accent, hard to understand at times, I'm sure is spot on how Ken Miles spoke. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets some award nominations.
    Jon Bernthal as a young Lee Iacocca doesn't get enough screen time.
    Josh Lucas does a great job of making Leo Beebe wholly unlikable.
    The scene where the Ford execs go to Italy in a failed attempt to buy Ferrari is fantastic. Much of the italian dialogue is NOT captioned in english but you'll get the gist.
    The movie is two and a half hours long, but I never felt like it dragged on. It is definitely worth seeing and certainly better than Stallone's Driven.

    It’s good to hear the scene when Ford was ready to buy Ferrari was great. That was what I was concerned about the most.

    I like to bust balls that's all. Any chance to take a shot, why not, I'm a bad ass keyboard warrior! The man is a gifted actor and writer, better than most. Certainly better than me. I just know plenty of guys like him where I live - The type that have certain viewpoints and don't practice what they preach. Live in an all white zip code with a black lives matter on the front lawn, then would call the cops if they see a black guy late at night in their cul-de-sac after dark. See his quote on guns and 2A. Then he turns around and makes millions off of the Bourne and departed films, which weapons are his primary tool. Of the movies above I have seen that you mention are the departed and Elysium. Both good flicks and he did a great job. The Departed was based on Whitey Bulger and it was the feds that are corrupt and not the State police. The movie had it backwards, as we all know the FBI is a bunch of flag waving never-lie-patriots.....


    Glad it was a good movie, I'll see it most likely when it comes to video. The Mrs has spent WAY to much time at the track so I can't ask her to go to a racing movie. Christian Bale is another great actor. His job of Dickie Ecklund (who I know) in the fighter as Mickey Ward's brother was right on the money. Dude dials it in for the roles.

    Vince has had some serious roles,he played Anthony Bates in a remake of the Hitchcock classic, Psycho. It took me a while to see him in that role but he pulled it off. Also played a Sargent in Hacksaw Ridge and the lead in Brawl in cellblock 9. Guys got some acting chops, hard after playing the funnyman to get out of the Jethro Bodine stereotype.

    Sounds like we have the same problem with the actors, Damon as a badass makes me chuckle and Vince as a badass makes you chuckle.

    In a steel cage match I am taking Vince.

    You forgot other "comic" role in Wedding Crashers.

    If you haven't seen Brawl In Cell Block 99, done by the Director of Bone Tomahawk (what a great sleeper), you should. Would totally change your opinion of his serious side.

    Bone Tomahawk, that one was weird but I liked it.

    Wedding Crashers is in my all time top 10 comedy list for me.

    I thought it was a great movie. Sure there’s some racing scenes, but there’s a lot of focus on what Ken and Carroll went through to develop a car that would have what it took to win.

    One scene/conversation I wonder if were true was when Carroll gives Henry Ford II a ride in one of the prototype GT40’s and makes the bet with Henry Ford II “If Ken Miles wins Daytona he gets to drive Le Mans and if he doesn’t you can have Shelby American lock and stock.”

    Yes I am planning on coming to the dyno day. (Dec 1st or Dec 8th?)

    Yes to the movie making me itch for mods....came home and started looking at pulley/injectors/ls9+ cam/trunnion upgrade/brick re-enforcement.....damn that movie! Lol!

    We really did enjoy it. 2.5hrs went by quickly. Bale and Damon were both great in their respective roles, as were the other actors as fellow members have mentioned above. Go see it if you haven't already.
