Nicolas Cage practiced his driving skills in Gone in 60 Seconds version, which eventually has been put on eBay. Cinema Vehicle Services were in charge of building a custom 1967 Shelby GT500 “Eleanors” for the movie. Total Control Products took care of the suspension and steering systems. While this 1965 289 4V V8 fastback was built by Terry Buch, TCP`s owner. The car wears the nametag “Testbed Terror.”
