Storyline

Insurance investigator Maindrian Pace and his team lead double-lives as unstoppable car thieves. When a South American drug lord pays Pace to steal 48 cars for him, all but one, a 1973 Ford Mustang, are in the bag. As Pace prepares to rip-off the fastback, codenamed "Eleanor", in Long Beach, he is unaware that his boss has tipped off the police after a business dispute. Detectives are waiting and pursue Pace through five cities as he desperately tries to get away. Written by Paul Morris

Trivia

In one scene at the construction area where the Mustang has been surrounded, a patrol car roars up a hill in pursuit and overturns. This was a real accident, and the officer inside was nearly crushed when the siren "can" on the roof caved the roof in. The scene was left in. See more »

Why cars have security systems!
20 January 2001 | by (Minneapolis, MN) – See all my reviews

This movie is worth viewing! The viewer needs to go into this knowing that this is a low budget, stunt "comedy" along the lines of the Keystone Cops.

Great acting it is NOT!

Great stunts it IS!

I appreciate this movie because Toby Haliki wrote it, produced it, funded it, starred in it, and did his own stunts!

The DVD edition has a nice introduction by his widow! (Toby died in a stunt accident making the sequel to this!)

Have to say ... the original is better than the 2000 edition!

Another thing "fun" about the movie ... the 70's hair styles, 70's clothing, 70's music, 70's muscle cars. All very cool! Aren't we glad we moved onto a new millennium!

I saw this movie back in 1974 when my wife was out of town and I had a guy's night out! Then completely forgot about it until I went to 2000 version with my 18-year-old son! I told him ... the original was better.

Today I bought the original. My wife, my son and I all enjoyed it.

It has comedic elements ... the car wash conclusion for example!

This is a classic ... just like the "yellow" Eleanor (Looks more like pumpkin to me!)... STUNT movie! Enjoy it for what it is and it is worth a look!

As a side ... I used to have a gold 1973 Plymouth Sebring like the blue one featured early in the film. I told my son ... "I used to have a car like that!" ... He had never seen one before!
