The first time we met Vin Diesel, the only time, he was wearing a gigantic fur coat. It was a cold night and we were on the roof of a Koreatown parking garage/driving range so it made sense. The multiple colors and gigantic size seemed a bit off, and the matching coat for his body man was also strange, but it's the sort of minor extravagance you expect from a celebrity. We were in LA for the late-night shooting of Fast And Furious and, in addition to starring in the film, Vin is an executive producer. Being partially in charge of the production also explains the motorized scooter he was using to get around (and the matching one for his gigantic muscle). It was a strange night and, because he was so aloof, it was hard to get a read on him. Thankfully, Boosted Lego Wagon provided a Decoding Your Vin to go along with our How to Decode Your Car's VIN feature.

All right, I'll take a shot at it..

So I was breaking his heart!
