"The Fast and the Furious" marks its 20th anniversary this summer, but Vin Diesel kicked off the celebration a little early.
Over the weekend, the 53-year-old actor honored the first installment of the wildly successful franchise by sharing a throwback snap of him and co-star Michelle Rodriguez, who played his character's on-screen love interest, Letty Ortiz.
Diesel, who played protagonist Dom Toretto, simply captioned the throwback, "20 year anniversary...Happy Creative... All love."
