Haha thanks! Talk about a labor of love!! I started the restoration back when I was single and had disposable income. Now, not so much. It has been sitting in my parent's garage since 2008. $24k is nothing for a car like this. It would take $40k+ to pry the title out of my hands for this car. The bodywork and paint was nearly $13k. That Eleanor you posted was probably north of $80,000.

Stupid question time:

What does the "E" stand for in GT-500E?
Eleanor from the remake of Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicolas Cage.

The REAL Eleanor was a '73 Mach 1 driven by Toby Halicki who also starred in, produced and directed the movie. That movie aired on my birthday, July 28th 1974.
