Arrow NEWS: Vin Diesel's F-Bomb 1973 Camaro for sale

Fast and the Furious F-Bomb 1973 Camaro Replica - Click above for high-res image gallery

We won't ask you whether or not you want the real-life F-Bomb 1973 Camaro because, let's face it, deep down inside, we all want a 1,500 horsepower, twin-turbo V8 beast to play with. But would you lay down your hard-earned pay check on a facsimile of the car built for the latest Fast and the Furious? If so, here's your chance. One of the movie cars built just for filming and piloted by Vin Diesel himself is up for grabs.

The car is being sold by the Volo Auto Museum for a measly $39,998. We're assured that the Camaro is fully functional, and is capable of being driven on the street if your heart so desires. It's worth noting that the replica gets its power from a fairly healthy 350 V8 bolted to an automatic gearbox instead of the glorious mill Hot Rod Magazine chose for the genuine article. Originally set up for wheelie scenes and camera work, the faux F-Bomb still boasts all of the hardware for those duties.

Could you build your own F-Bomb replica for less than $40k? Maybe, but it wouldn't have a film history behind it.

40K for a 73 Camaro with a 'healthy' 350? No thanks

No freakin way would I pay that much for an F-bomb clone, not that I have 40gs to drop on a whim anyway. The "real" F-bomb, if I could afford it I would at least consider, but this turd, never. Unless its for a museum piece I see absolutely no reason to go for this car.
