Well, there's quite a bit on the post-construction *tuning* of the car... but it is at core a story of the principal characters.

I was feeling a little cheated when they just unveil the car. but I can understand the time pressure to keep the running time shorter, and they had to make a choice as to where to invest the audience's emotional connection: to the machine, or the men..

Here's how it was in DOT:

There's another scene, couldn't;t find a link to it, but Duvall is again talking to the car, almost praying with it... "I set you up for cold weather... but if that sun breaks... the track will get loose... Cole isn't ready for that. You have to stay with it..." (looks under car; sees an oil leak dripping from the engine into the floor, makes disgusted expression)

Then there's a fabulous movie: Coppola's "Tucker: The Man And His Dream"
