Right now conditions are far from ideal for motoring in most parts of the country. If you're stuck inside with some time to kill, these classic films should help satiate your need to hoon.
Gone In 60 Seconds
Here's one that's sure to set "teh internets" on fire. A group of students from Saitama University in Japan showed up to the Tokyo Auto Salon with a 2JZ-GE powered MkIV Toyota Supra dressed up like Nick Cage's Eleanor from the very bad to watch Gone in 60 Seconds remake. Not familiar with Eleanor? Aside from being far and away the best part of the film, Eleanor is a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that's been gone over with an epic-tooth comb.
Nicholas Cage may have stolen a bunch of cars in the movie Gone in 60 Seconds, but in real life, he's like a lot of really rich and famous people in that he collects classic cars. Back in 2004, Cage sold three of his Ferraris and a Cobra, but $300,000 of the proceeds were never returned. The shady character that brokered the sale, Peter Brotman, got tangled in quite the web of deceit after bilking Willow Grove Bank out of $950,000 on top of the $300k taken from Cage.
