Eleanor

Lego Ford Mustang GT500 Eleanor

Ah Nicolas Cage, the man who literally can’t turn down any film role, no matter how terrible it may be. Ghost Rider, Left Behind, Drive Angry, The Wicker Man, Ghost Rider 2…

But there was a time when Nic made decent movies. This movie car is not from that time, but we suppose it sits somewhere in the middle. Cage’s remake of the car theft action film ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ was enjoyable enough, and it gave a starring role to a modified 1967 Mustang GT500 named Eleanor, which can only be a good thing.

This is Ralph Savelsberg‘s remake of his own original version of Eleanor from a few years ago, and there’s more to see of his brilliant GT500 build (plus a brick-built Nic Cage) at his photostream via the link above.

Gone in 60 Seconds

Ford Mustang GT500 'Eleanor' LegoA retired car thief and his crew are required to steal 50 cars in one night to pay a debt. A thin plot for sure, but within it are some very good car chases, lots of mad Nic Cage acting, Angelina Jolie, and this; the Mustang GT500 ‘Eleanor’. Ralph Savelsberg rebuilds the movie legend, complete with Memphis Raines figure, on Flickr, which the Elves successfully ‘boosted’ and brought to TLCB office for us to share. Check it out at Ralph’s photostream while they lay low.
