    OK..........The rule is..........You can only have ONE.

    Yeah, I could have added some completely weird cars like Speed Racer's Mach 5, the Munster's car, James Bond's submersible Lotus, or the Batmobile, but I thought we could keep it to real cars.

    General Lee - Dukes of Hazzard
    Gran Torino - Starsky and Hutch
    Trans Am - Smokey and the Bandit
    Trans Am - Night Rider
    DeLoreon - Back to the Future
    "Eleanor" '67 Mustang - Gone in 60 Seconds
    Bullitt GT Mustang - Steve McQueen
    Ford Falcon - Mad Max
    Milner's 32 Duece Coupe - American Graffeti
    Shaggin Wagon - Dumb and Dumber (had to include this for Lucky)
    1970 Dodge Charger - Fast and the Furious
    1948 Ford De Luxe "Greased Lightning" - Grease
    1961 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder - Ferris Bueller's Day Off

    Wanna add some others?

    Ok, a couple different ones:

    1. The Pontiac drive by Roy Scheider in "The Seven Ups"

    2. The Charger(?) with the rabbits in "THunderbolt and Lightfoot".

    I agree Thor. And that Autocar trumps that Montego! :)

    Les, did you know Carol Shelby opened a shop up here in Plano (just north of Dallas, Texas) and is building Eleanor's for the asking. Here is an article posted in Mustang Monthly.....

    Carroll Shelby and Sanderson Sales and Marketing are making the best attempt we've seen in a while to give you the chance to own that car--or one very much like the GT500 that Randall "Memphis" Rains clipped in the movie. The new GT500E (the "E" stands for Eleanor) is based on the GT500 that Nick Cage and the wizards at Cinema Vehicle Services (CVS) made famous--sort of. Actually, the new Eleanor is more like what CVS proposed to New Line before the movie was shot. So lets take a peek at what Sanderson Sales and Marketing and Carroll Shelby have cooked up for you, the buying public.

    Is it Real?
    In all respects, this car is real. The specific fiberglass Eleanor parts all hail from CVS, and the car is as real a Shelby as you can get in a modern-day remake. What this means is that, like the '66 convertibles that Shelby built in the '80s, these are continuation cars. The serial numbers will be CSE numbers signed off by Carroll Shelby himself. The numbering for the new Shelby GT500E will begin with 001 and go to 400. Sanderson Sales and Marketing will be the sole sales outlet for these vehicles.So, the serial numbers for the GT500E, be that base or upgraded, will fall in the numeric range stated above, and will appear as follows: CSE-001 through CSE-400. There isn't much more real than that.

    What's in a Name?
    All the new Shelbys will be GT500Es--even though a carbureted 325 horse 302 will power the base car. Although some may be troubled by Carroll's use of the GT500E name for a car with no standard big-block, we have no problem with this. After all, Carroll himself signed off on it. And just like Shelby has always maintained, "If it's a good car, the name won't matter. And if it's a bad car, the name won't save it." That isn't to say you can't get real big-block power from your Eleanor. You can order it with a 427 if you wish--more on that later.

    Totals and Rumors.
    Shelby and Sanderson Sales and Marketing plan to produce a maximum of 100 GT500Es a year over the next four years. The Super Snakes will be limited to a 75-model production run period.There is talk of taking the idea of continuation cars into other areas. One that we thought about was a '65 GT350 with updated engine components and suspension.

    How Does it Drive?
    We had the opportunity to pilot the GT500E prototype car in the vicinity of the Shelby American facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. To say that the beast--this one powered by a 430 horse 351 Windsor, stroked out to 392 cubes--is awesome is an understatement. This powerplant, coupled with the Total Control suspension and the fairly aggressive T56 six-speed gearbox, made the GT500E a strong and capable performer--both in the corners and on a straight-line launch.

    Even with the 3.89 posi get-lost gears, the six-speed allows the car to get happy-loose at the rear wheels at any flick of the ankle and keeps it happily tooling along on the interstate. The bellow from the Flowmaster exhaust is enough to melt the heart of any red-blooded American who loves the smell of burning rubber and spent fuel.

    Driving the GT500E is also a thrill for the looks it gets. As we left the Shelby American parking lot, we spied several folks craning their necks to take in the snarling animal. As we were using Speedway Boulevard to get acquainted with the Shelby, two track workers at the Las Vegas Speedway nearly cracked up their Chevy work truck watching us. This wasn't the last time we were gawked at by passersby, both automotive and pedestrian.

    As we became better acquainted with the car, we felt more like Rains from the movie. This was a dangerous thing to feel behind the wheel of such a Mustang, especially since it didn't belong to us. But then again, the car that "Memphis" drove was one that he pinched from some hapless owner. That feeling of being Mr. Rains does get under your skin, especially when you look down at the Nitrous toggle switch and thumb the "Go Baby Go" button on the shift knob, both of which are functional. While clicking through the gearbox, taking in the stark landscape of the Vegas area, you don't even notice that you're cresting 80 mph on a stretch of federal real estate slated for only 55.

    When the minivan with three teenage girls and one adult pulled alongside (after we'd slowed down to the posted limit), we smiled, nailed it, and sprinted away in true "Memphis" fashion. This car may not be a ticket magnet due to its color, but it is a car that, by the very nature of its association, will make you do things--bad things. After some seat time, all we can say is that we want one, and also that, like Memphis, Eleanor will make you think, "I'm a Baaaad man."

    The Last Word
    What will the future hold for these "new" Shelbys? Only time and finance will tell. For now, though, these have to be the largest and most exciting movie promos we've ever seen. We're still searching for a way to make one of these happen for ourselves. If you're interested in buying into the new legend, give Sanderson Sales and Marketing a call at 972/234-2882.

    Oh, I forgot to vote. I'd take the Charger from Too Fast Too Furious. That scene at the end of the movie was awesome, even though my heart sank when they flipped it.
