These Production Stills From the Original The Fast and the Furious Are Amazing

While researching details and tracking down visuals for my Los Angeles street racing story earlier this month, I stumbled across the treasure trove of The Fast and the Furious production stills on IMDB. Each of them is beautiful and perfect, a true time capsule of early 2000s grunge fashion and I cannot resist sharing with you all today.

I think the photo quality is really what does it for me. They’re all a little too saturated, with extremely warm tones. And they all have that perfect amount of 2000s-style grain for authenticity.

Everyone looks so young! Paul Walker looks absolutely angelic. If I could invent a time machine, I’d go back to Los Angeles in 2001.

I have always loved Jesse’s nail polish.
