Here's the shop that built most of the replicas used in the filming, all in all they did a great job of at least outwardly replicating the P4 Ferrari's. Had fun identifying the non Ford/Ferrari makes within the race sequences as well.

Took my team from work yesterday. All 30   or younger.
I'll see on Monday if anyone "gets it". Their biggest thrill is a new iPhone.

There is some talk about CGI in this movie.  Well cut to 4:44 of this youtube and it sure doesn't look like CGI to me...Maybe the scene with a car going airborne but wait a minute.  Maybe not.  See 5:55.  Matt Damon was being serious about the no CGI.
Opinions Mr. Spock.

Small block eight so live she feels
There she's parked beside the curb
Engine revving to disturb
She's the princess from his past
Red paint gold stripes damned she's fast"

The cost to view Ford v Ferrari on the island is $3.50

Congratulations to Christian Bale for winning the Golden Globe nomination as lead actor in a drama for his performance as racing legend Ken Miles in Ford vs Ferrari ( a.k.a. The Ken Miles story)  :)

Sadly, Matt Damon was not mentioned by the Foreign Press Association and did not get nominated in any category for his performance as Carroll Shelby.    :'(
