    Just Saw Ironman

    it was pretty good. story was interesting. dead pan humour was kinda weird in some places but not bad.

    it definately beats transformers for the cgi, not only with better looking models but the intricate moving parts stayed on screen long enough to see them moving and going together.

    it also beats transformers by lacking the intense product placement that plagued the film. had nicer cars but it was a shame they chose the cobra to smash . in that sequence/his workshop/garage teh cars are R8, AC Cobra, Saleen S7 and Tesla Roadster?

    It was definitely a Tesla Roadster, which is based on the Elise.

    He also had that Hotrod type car there. Anyone know if that was a specific model or was it just a completely custom affair.

    I think I saw a small pic of that a while back, most likely a 32 ford....seeing as thats what 90% of hotrods are seems like that anyways

    I saw Ironman yesterday and I thought it was great. I found that it had a good mix of action to humour and that the story was quite good too.

    Ironman is a great movie. I was laughing my arse off the whole time. Very good performance by Downey Jr.

    It was an early 30s Ford with a flathead V8.

    Apparently not, but there's nothing in this thread that's a spoiler so don't fret. I just got back from it, very enjoyable.
