In Iron Man, there was a heavy physical suit they sometimes used, but the bulk of the footage was CGI, as the proportions of the Iron Man suit aren't that of a human's. Wikipedia mentions sometimes, Downey would only wear the helmet, sleeves and chest of the costume over a motion capture suit. From here: [The Iron Man 2 suit] was only a half suit -- ...

Showing Tony's infatuation with Hot Rods is a very efficient storytelling tool. And through show-not-tell you can immediately deduce that: Tony loves to tinker with machines. Lives life in the fast lane. Has oodles of money (and time) to spare on pet projects. He has a very obsessive (and possessive) personality. All of these are core to the character of ...

Its due to Huge pay cut as rumor suggest and even due to role cut as indicated in @Incognito's answer. Here are Howard's reaction on the removal from Iron Man 2- "Marvel made a choice, and it was a very, very bad choice. They didn't keep their word.

I think it's surely the "show, don't tell" aspect of his ingenuity and hobby. It shows us his probable rebellious past, maybe his first car. And since he's so mechanically inclined, the car probabbly portrays this side of Stark in a raw unrefined form of his past self. Hot Rodders are always tinkering with their cars and the deep cultural history behind Hot ...
