Fast & Furious 1995 Volkswagen Jetta Heads to Barrett Jackson Auction
Jesse’s Fast and Furious Volkswagen Jetta is heading to Barrett Jackson. The Furious car will go up for sale with no reserve at the Scottsdale, Arizona show. The auction will take place January 23-31. The car will run across the auction block on January 28th, 2016.
This is a real piece of automotive history. The Jetta is signed by Paul Walker. The Fast & Furious franchise went through the roof following this original film.
This 1995 Jetta driven by Jesse was from ‘the good one’. The original ‘The Fast and the Furious’ was real and made for automotive enthusiasts by director Rob Cohen. Car stunts, driving, NOPI drag racing events and even cars blowing up, it was all real.
The later films grabbed a different director who had no issue making complete CGI nonsense. The films following were aimed at the audience of children, mass appeal and action junkies who couldn’t tell the difference or didn’t care.
