You may or may not be a fan of "The Fast and The Furious" movies, but someone's buying tickets, because Universal Pictures is releasing the third film in the series this summer - "The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift." If the trailer's anything to go by, there should be some rivetting action sequences. The acting? Well, who cares, really?

Regardless of the movie's artistic merit, you couldn't ask for a better product placement opportunity for a tire manufacturer than a movie about drifting, and Toyo Tires is all over this one. Not only is Toyo rubber on many of the cars in the film, but the company is holding the national "Gettin' Sideways Sweepstakes," with the Grand Prize a red Mitsubishi Evo 9 like the one shown above. Interested? Get yourself to a Toyo dealer or log on to toyosweeps.com.

      LOL, they put the fake Japanese plate right in the middle of the IC, blocking most of the air flow.
