Dom's Charger Gets JDM Look, Matte Skyline Is Supercharged: Fast & Confused?

"You owe me a ten-second car" is one of the most iconic lines in movie history, at least if you're into drag racing. However, did you ever wonder what would have happened if Dom and Brian had just switched cars at one point?

The 9th movie in this epic franchise was originally supposed to come out this month. While the cinemas are closed, we're trying to keep things interesting by looking at Fast & Furious cars from weird angles.

And it doesn't get much weirder than this classic rendering by adry53customs that shows two iconic racing masters swapping paint jobs. It's like one of those TV shows where famous artists switch genres.

Dom's famous 1970 Charger R/T is back to being sleek and almost adopts a ricer look. Like a JDM tuning special, this muscle car is now slammed to the ground on some polished 5-spoke wheels with pointy titanium nuts. There's no big V8 sticking out of the hood, and you can't pop a wheelie with that stance.

Meanwhile, the Skyline has an all-black paint job and its hood has been penetrated by the supercharger from the big-block V8 engine. It's safe to say that no such engine swap has ever existed.

So what would it take for such a setup to exist? Well, we're not movie writers, but a good solution would be for Brian to buy Dom's car out of a kind of respect after he wipes out at the end of the first movie. You know, a "here's some money while you get back on your feet."

The 1999 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 belongs to the next movie, 2 Fast 2 Furious, where you see it participate in street races hosted by Tej Parker. After you see the livery on this one, there can be no question that Brian likes his imports very flashy.

Now, the R34's RB26DETT 2.6-liter is a legend, but it's a little too small for Dom. So to get back at him for being a cop, he paints it black and swaps in a 440 or a Hemi just to see Brian's reaction.
