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
Captain Gibbs is astonished when Carl says his license plate number is "UDUNOME". Carl explains that "MRCOOL" was already taken. As seen later in the film (and in the original Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)), it was taken in reality - by Lyle Waggoner. See more »
The unmarked Plymouth Fury has no back window or rear view mirror, and would therefore be unroadworthy. It certainly would not be put on the street as a police car. See more »

Captain Gibbs, this is Carl and your people won't let me get my personal effects out of the car. It's bad enough my Bricklin's broken. I could lose my image.
You know, you're really breaking my heart, Carl.
But, captain, they won't let me see my baby. I mean, some cop said they won't release it because of evidence or something. Come on, what's the deal?
That's why we have impound lots.
Look! I have to show what's left of my car to the insurance ...

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.
