Everything you need to know to lose 22 minutes of your day – I know it's a very long time by internet standards – is that this is an incredible look behind the scenes of the first Fast and Furious movie, originally called Redline 1. It then became F&F's first episode of the saga which has been followed by many more.

While it's nice to see every single aspect of the "Making of," I think this video is more a kind of nostalgia. Why? Because of the aftermarket accessories incredible era where everybody who's seen the movie was younger and loved to see those running fast cars. Even if I weren't a Japanese car addict, I would watch this with melancholy eyes because I love that kind of car and I think we all need to see them again on roads. Right, automakers?
