Gone in 60 Seconds Mustang “Eleanor” Heading to Auction

A true movie star will make its way down Mecum’s signature red carpet this May in Indianapolis. Known by most simply as “Eleanor,” the modified 1967 Ford Mustang from Touchstone Pictures’ “Gone in 60 Seconds” will cross the block as Lot S135 at Dana Mecum’s 26th Original Spring Classic auction this May 14-19. This collector car icon piloted in the movie by retired master car thief Memphis Raines, played by Nicholas Cage, is the real McCoy. Several cars were built to handle various duties in the filming of “Gone,” but this is serial number 7R02C179710, the “Hero” car driven by Cage during filming and the model used in movie close-ups, posters and promotional materials.

Built by Cinema Vehicle Services with the help of master designer Chip Foose, the body pieces of Eleanor were mocked up on a Mustang using clay and wood. Molds were then made to produce a new fiberglass front end filled with high-powered PIAA driving lights, new fender flares, side skirts and scoops, hood and trunk lid. To give the car big-screen performance, it was treated to a 351/400 HP Ford crate engine, which shares room with a front subframe body brace by Total Control Products, LLC. This progenitor of the Eleanor revolution is relatively untouched inside with the exception of an Autometer Sport Comp Monster tach, fire extinguisher, Go-Baby-Go shift knob button for Line Lock and a switch for activating a nitrous injection system.

“Eleanor has become one of the most widely recognized movie star muscle cars in the world, so when the decision was made to offer the ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ Hero car for sale, Mecum’s Spring Classic auction in Indianapolis seemed like the perfect venue,” commented Ray Claridge, owner of Cinema Vehicle Services. Set to be offered directly from the builder on Saturday, May 18 at the original, best and largest muscle car auction, this is truly the car that started it all.

Thirty-two hours of the Indianapolis auction will be broadcast live on Discovery’s Velocity Network with the entire auction streaming live on Mecum’s website at www.mecum.com. Mecum’s Indy auction is open to buyers, sellers and spectators. Gates open at 8 a.m. each day and general admission can be purchased at the door for $20 per person; children 12 and younger will be admitted at no cost.

For more information on the auction or to register as a bidder, visit www.mecum.com or call (262) 275-5050.

Acer Iconia

by Mohd in Technology

Acer Iconia

Windows have been suffering from users converting to other platforms like Linux & of course Macintosh and its all up to the hardware manufactures to try to attract customers and making them keep faith in Windows. HP, Dell, Acer and all the computer manufturers r just pushing the limits with more processor power and better screen resulotion just to make up where Windows is falling behind and all of that for an affordable price.

Most of u know that im a HUGE Mac fan but i have to admit when another brand makes a good product. My Friend A.J.K just bo

ught the new Acer Iconia and got it for me to review in our weekly gathering in Aziz’s Dewanya. Now lets get into the fun part 🙂 Acer came up with a new idea for their Iconia laptops, instead of making the usual boring looking laptop they thought Hmmmmm lets make a double screen one and neglect the plastic keyboard. First i though it would be SoOoOoOoOoOoOo expensive but actually its  affordable in a way u would never expect, A.J.K got it for only 400 KD of course not from Kuwait coz they sell it here for a 550 KD i wont comment of the price in Q8 coz we all know why.

 

 


I wont mention the whole specs but if u wanna check the full specs HERE . What really worth noting that this incredible gadget has an Intel i5 Core 2.93 GHz heart which in my opionion will be suitable for all ur daily tasks. I spent more than 2 hours using it trying to know when it will start freezing or lagging coz we r all so familliar with Windows needing to restart coz it cant handle all the tasks, the device is pretty awesome for a Windows laptop. The main issue that alot of potential buyers may be concerened from is whether the screen will be lagging or unresponsive but actually it NEVER did MASHALLAH, i can almost compare it to my Galaxy Tab response. What will make u fall in love with it and forget that its operated by Windows that Acer designed their own widgets and layout to maximize the use their 2 touch screens.

If ur looking for a replacement for ur old Windows laptop i highly recommend the Iconia for ur daily tasks, check the video below to get a feeling of what im talking about.

I could not help myself adding all the mistakes taken during filming the Iconia LoOoOoL, check it out 😉

Special Thanks to A.J.K for the laptop & A.S.J for filming
