Gone in 60 Seconds, Australian style
16 February 2003 | by (Bradenton, FL) – See all my reviews

Like the first 'Gone in 60 Seconds', this Australian import is about car thieves. Some nice shots of hot rods and muscle cars from Down-under.

The plot? Steal cars and take them to the 'Chop Shop'. The first car to get the treatment is a Charger, driven in and cut up for parts. Followed by a hot Ford Fairlane, which gets into a street race. Production values are fair to good. Good movie for automobile fans.
