Disgruntled Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski sets out to reform his neighbor, a Hmong teenager who tried to steal Kowalski's prized possession: a 1972 Gran Torino.
A Hmong gang member has Chinese characters tattooed on his upper chest. They translate to "family."
God, I am sorry for Dorothy, Walt. She was a real peach.
Walt Kowalski: Thanks for coming, Al.
When the Hmong gangbangers drive up to the Mexican gangbangers, Spider drives, forward, then drives in reverse without changing gears. Then a break in the scene shows his car's backup lights.
The credits scroll over a highway overlooking the lake shore, with the Warner Logo appearing in black and white.
