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.
The jersey Walt's grandson wears at the funeral is that of former Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams.
God, I am sorry for Dorothy, Walt. She was a real peach.
Walt Kowalski: Thanks for coming, Al.
(at around 36 mins) Walt and Sue drive away from the three thugs who are standing in front of a white and brown brick building. Approximately one minute later, Walt and Sue pass by the same white and brown brick building again (seen in the background behind Walt).
The credits scroll over a highway overlooking the lake shore, with the Warner Logo appearing in black and white.
