Eleanor Car Chase part 1
Longest Car Chase ever with Eleanor. "Eleanor" is the trademarked name given to a 1971 Ford Mustang (redressed as a 1973) for it's role in the 1974 film Gone in 60 Seconds. "Eleanor" is the only Ford Mustang in history to receive a star title credit in a movie. Some of the stunts were real accidents.

Gone in 60 seconds | Eleanor Shelby GT500
When you are offered the chance to shoot an original 1967 Shelby GT500 from the film Gone In 60 Seconds, signed by Nicolas Cage; otherwise known as Eleanor, you don't turn it down. A good friend of mine mentioned to me that one of his co-workers, Chris Kenner, owned the car from the film and would be up for doing a short film with it. This was completely surreal for me because since I was a kid, I have seen the movie plenty of times and idolized the film and the car. I had only a limited amount of time to shoot already, and we lost a lot of time on account of the brake lights not working properly. But the two days I had with the car flew by and before you know it that was it. We had a storyline in mind, but weren't sure how to work it in with the footage that we were able to get. When I was trying things in the editing room, I casually put the theme-song from the movie underneath some of the footage, and it just had to stay. The result is a faux-tribute to the film and the car. And although we weren't able to achieve a lot of the same things in the film, the car sure looked good under the lights of Las Vegas! Enjoy!
