Isn't that a "stock" type Shelby hood and front end? What could be wrong about that? Only resemblance I see to Eleanor is the color.I've always thought the hood and front end of Eleanor looked stupid, and this one's no different IMHO.
THANK YOU! That yellow 73 Mach 1 was awesome, in fact the real Gone in Sixty Seconds is the best car movie ever. It makes Bullitt look like a Sunday afternoon drive.May I remind everyone that the real Eleanor was a 73 NOT a 67
Yeah! Like a bitchen 71-73 Mustang that doesn't need anything to be any badder than it is. Whoa sorry The 80's just popped outta me there for a second ::Course, I don't think I have to worry too much about owning one. I can think of quite a few other cars I'd rather put that kind of money into.
I don't think so. A decent silver-gray is a nice color on almost any car, and it's a perennial on a level with white and black. It was the only alternate color I ever considered for mine - but ultimately I committed to keeping the factory color, and once the movie came out I didn't want to be accused of being an Eleanor wannabe. Maybe if I do the Shelbyized convertible (nose and tail, no badges or detail) I might go with the pewter - it would be a few years down the road and hopefully GT500Es will no longer be the rage.Kind of reminds me of the popularity of Lime Gold and all of its variations back in the `60s .
In a few years the Eleanor Grey will be another YUCK color .
