Moviegoers catch fast-car fever this spring

Moviegoers catch fast-car fever this springThe nation's number one movie at the box office may inspire more than a few motor enthusiasts to apply for a car loan this spring.

Fast Five, starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, accrued $83.6 million in ticket sales last weekend, shooting to the top of the box office rankings, according to USA Today. The film earned $33.2 million on its first day, April 29, to set a record for the biggest April opening.

The popularity of the movie, along with the other Fast and the Furious films, highlights America's passion for automobiles. Although the premise of the picture involves a group of bandits who steal vehicles, most Americans get their auto fix the old-fashioned way: applying for a car loan .

Some individuals think that a bad credit car loan will not finance a fast carriage, similar to the models seen in Fast Five, but they are mistaken. AOL Autos reveals that several models released in the last few years are not only affordable, but they can reach up to 60 miles per hour in a matter of seconds.

By securing a used car loan, consumers may be in the market for a 2008 Hyundai Sonata SE, 2008 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V or a 2008 Honda Civic Si Coupe. These models can get up to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds.
