    Nice eyes, but I think we can let him slide. :) 

    I think the bigger mistake is that the final render uses real headlights where the concept art uses NASCAR accurate stickers simulating headlights. So... ILM guys 1, Josh N. 1

    Well, the Wreckers are @$$holes. Whose to say they wouldn't have considered NASCAR regulations a load of bollocks and made their own mods?

    Considering the Wreckers only ever drove around with guns sticking out all over the place, I don't think being off by one number was going to be the cause of somebody noticing that there's not actually a legitimate NASCAR racer driving past, weapons blazing.

    Plus, Nizzi's art has Steeljaw. I don't know about you, but a robot dog is so much cooler than the right number on a race car.

    They changed it because its a reference to Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

    42 is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.

    NASCAR teams change their sponsors quite often so not really surprised to see it changed when the movie was filmed.

    Dude, it's concept art. Made before the actual production of the movie begins. Things change.

    I'd love to get Minh'T's opinion on the first movie's early concept art, where the characters didn't look remotely like they do now. :p

    Back when Josh drew the picture, the Target car was number 41, and a Dodge, a car company that is NOT working with the film makers. Now, however, the Target car is number 42, and a Chevrolet. Mystery solved.
