Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

If you haven't already seen this, enjoy: the longest car chase in movie history. A lot of nice stuff gets wrecked though.

Much better than the remake in almost every way. The only thing better in the remake is the colour of the Mustang.

Sadly the sound track of the "original" was changed by Halicki's widow.
I have the real original.

Anyone notice the 56 Chevrolet following the poor red Challenger into the shredder?

This must have been a very, very expensive film to make.

Excellent car chase.
I wonder how long it took to plan it?
I can see why people buy V8 Mustangs for the sound alone.
