The elusive Eleanor.

The elusive Eleanor.

There’s only one car is so distinct that you will know what it is and what it will look like, simply by hearing its name.  That car, my friends, is the “Eleanor” Mustang featured in the movie Gone in 6o Seconds.

For those that watched the movie, you will know that they named the car “Eleanor” because it was more difficult to trace over walkie-talkies when the car theives used women’s names instead of the actual name of the car.  Eleanor was the last car to be stolen and was the unicorn for the main character.

Originally a 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 (in the first movie) and then a Shelby Mustang 1967 GT500 (in the remake), you can now purchase your own recreation of the Eleanor from a company called Classic Recreations.  If you’ve got that extra $100k, check them out on their website.

As for me, I will just watch the movie and live vicariously through Nicholas Cage.
