They featured a company named Unique Performance who specializes in building the Shelby GT500 from Gone in 60 seconds.
I just thought it was bad ass.....I love that car.
Chip Foose was one of the designers of that car for the movie.
Foose is the man!......very talented guy.

They state on their website Orange County Choppers ordered 2 of their GT500 cars and in return i think they are gonna design a GT500 bike.

Very nice cars. My fastback is in the paint shop right now getting Shelby stripes painted on it...I'm worried every a$$ on the street now is going to start bugging me about the Eleanor car. I drove it to the theatre when the movie originally opened and I had 10 people standing around it when I came out, ready to ask questions. That was not an enjoyable experience.

I think they should put the bulge in the hood to good use by making a revers cowel for a 45 deg tilted radiator....Will keep that engine really cool.

Thats the price you pay for having a nice car......
Are you getting it painted like the one in the movie?

No way...its going to be the original Nightmist blue but with white Shelby stripes. I used to work at a classic Mustang shop and when that movie came out everyone called us wanting to know if we had any real Shelby's in stock. At the time we had a red '68 GT350 that we had listed for $35k. That really blew their minds. The next question was usually "How much for a real GT500 that would need a complete restoration?"...only $10k :D
