Vote up the most impressive details you missed the first time around.

The Fast And Furious franchise means different things to fans depending on when they started watching. What started as a car enthusiast's dream has drifted farther into a franchise more along the lines of the MCU, with action and defied physics to match. Long gone are the days of racing for pink slips. Now fans are treated to such gems as driving a car through skyscrapers, pulling an entire vault down a busy street, and racing an airplane down an impossibly long runway. However, with such a deep catalog of films, there are plenty of options depending on what you want to watch.

Regardless of whether you noticed these details on your first watch or your 100th, we're all “family.” Vote up your favorite details!

    True fans really understood the significance of this scene, and Redditor u/RedRiki24 pointed out the personal touch:

    In the Furious 7 (2015) ending, the car featured a Toyota Supra (MK IV) and a 1970 Dodge Charger as Vin (Dom) and Paul (Brian) parted ways, in tribute to Paul Walker. It was also the same car model that they used in the ending of the first F&F. The white Supra was Paul's personal owned.
