Someone else (jalopnik.com) pointed out the similarities between Solo's speeder in the trailer and a 1965 Ford Falcon, so I did some image comparisons... influences continue right through to the dashboard.

I know someone on FB joked that maybe they used an actual Ford Falcon to build this, but I think it might be accurate.
It would certainly make it easier for the replica prop community.

Either way, it looks pretty cool.

I have to admit, I didn't notice this before when watching the 'Solo' trailer (Kristy spotted it first)... lucky dice...

Here's something a little crazy. According to Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence Kasdan was bought on by Lucasfilm to write a Han Solo movie *before* LFL was sold to Disney.

Even before Lucasfilm was sold to Disney in 2012, launching a renaissance of galactic storytelling, Lawrence Kasdan had signed on to put together a Han Solo-centric movie. Then he was brought aboard Episode VII, and that became all-consuming.
