Provided the movie isn't a dog it's only going to do one thing to coupe values.
I'm loathe to let my kids in the coupe, let alone an actual animal.
That said my kids make great labourers on the CSL. It's amazing how useful small hands are sometimes :D

There is a part in the book where Danny and Enzo are lapping a track in the E9 and Enzo is asking for one more lap, it reminds me of my dog Hofmeister. He loves car rides so much that we cant say the word "Ride" in the house. I cant wait to get the e9 done so we can cruise around in that.

Tears in my eyes guys. Every word in every post is so true. We are beginning to see some decline in our fourth rescue dog, Wolfe. A Shepherd, Hound Dog, Huskie Mix now 11 years young. All four love(d) to go for long rides. And we too could not say the word "car" within earshot of any of them.

I will attempt to post a photo in another post.

I was explaining the plot to this movie to my wife and got a little lump in my throat, she told me that I had to wait to see it on demand at home. Give Wolfe all a ride for me today, I might take Hof out for a ride in the 02 this afternoon.

For whatever reason, 'Bye, bye, car' is how we've let our dogs know we're hitting the road and they get to come along. Those three words send them into a frenzy. Hershey loved to go in the car but would never stick her head out the window. Hazel is the opposite, she quickly learned how to work the power windows as a pup. I have to hit the window lock on cold days or if we are on the freeway. Somewhere, I have a picture of her with her paw on the window crank of my daughter's old jeep trying to figure out how to get the window down.

Well, the trailer looks pretty good and I'm hoping for the best. Enzo was really the star in the book and I don't think Costner's voice personifies him that well; most important, I hope these actors don't become the focal point. But the visual production looks great with plenty of racing. Need to get a small kleenex package for the theater of course...and read the book again before it's here. Ohmes and I were considering driving our cars to the theather and displaying them somewhere but that's likely too much effort and risky...
