Fast and Furious movie only has one showing
The Fast and Furious movie franchise debuted to worldwide audiences 15 years ago this week. It has since gone on to make a shocking amount of money, not to mention spawn a shocking amount of sequels. Universal Studios is re-releasing the original Fast and Furious movie to mark the anniversary on Wednesday (June 22). This is a one time show on one night only. If you want to see the original Fast and Furious movie in Edmonton, AB, the South Edmonton Common will be showing it at 7 p.m. Contact the theater for ticket information. In honor of the re-release, we looked back through the movie archives and found some General Motors cars featured in the film series.
General Motors cars in Fast and Furious movies
By and large, the cars featured in the Fast and Furious franchise are foreign imports that have been modified to within an inch of being nearly unrecognizable. There have only been a few General Motors cars to get screen time scattered through the seven released movies. The eighth installment is slated to be in theaters next year and it will be interesting to see what models are spared the cutting room floor.

It would nearly be criminal to have a movie about high-performance cars without including the 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS. If there was ever a car that embodied what the old Muscle Car Wars were all about it’s the sheer power of the Chevelle SS. This actually appeared in two films of the series.

For our money, there is no more quintessential muscle car than the Chevy Camaro. The Camaro model that was driven in “2 Fast 2 Furious” was a 1969 Yenko Camaro. The Yenko name came from Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. During the time when the dealership was in operation, they became famous for producing customized high-performance cars built during the 1960s.

In the history of Buick cars few stand out as much as the 1987 Buick GNX. It’s big, it’s all black and fast. Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez drove one of the 547 of these cars made in “Fast and Furious” trying to overtake a moving semi. Lapses in planning and judgement aside, the 1987 GNX is a very cool car and a surprising inclusion even among the rare GM models used in the movie franchise.
