Storyline

After the attempted theft of his daughter's husband's car, LAPD Captain Gibbs declares war on master car thief Maindrian Pace, whose insurance investigation company provides the perfect front. A South American drug lord pays Pace and his team to steal 48 cars for him, so they set out on the job while the police frantically try to track him down. Their efforts pay off when Pace's boss double-crosses him and tips them off on his next job. Police pursue Pace in "Eleanor", the last of the cars needed to fulfill their contract, through southern California as he tries to get away. Written by Paul Morris

Trivia

The close-up shots of Maindrian escaping from the roof of the Bricklin and onto the helicopter were achieved by placing the Bricklin on the back of a flat-bed truck and spinning the wheels to give the illusion that the car is moving. See more »

Strange re-make of Gone in 60 Seconds
23 August 2001 | by (Storuman, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is not a sequel to "Gone in 60 seconds". It is actually the same old 1974 film with new scenes inserted (apparently filmed at the same time as "The Junkman"). This sometimes look a bit strange, since some of the 1974 footage is rather scratched. What I find most curious about this film is that I have never found it in any movie encyclopedia. Not even Leonard Maltin mentions this alternate version in his review of the original Gone in 60 Seconds.
