'Eleanor' Mustang auctioned for big money, factory CJ bites the dust

Nice 'Stang- but a million bucks? Who knows, he may make money on a resale...

Eleanor Mustang driven by Nicolas Cage sells for $1 million



Now the Mustang I would love to own- or drive- is the new Cobra Jet. Factory race car through and through, but that also means guys light on any real experience w/a vehicle that'll pull the wheels so easily are finding themselves in WAY over their heads:

A friend of mine has a replica "Eleanor." I saw the auction on Saturday where these idiots were bidding over 1 million for the original Eleanor. I guess if you have the money, why not? I'm with you... I'd buy a fully loaded Cobra instead. I'd still have money left over to buy whatever I wanted like the Supercharged 41 Willys I need to own someday!

I don't know why you would crank the wheels to the right when they are up in the air?

When air born you want to point the wheels in the direction you wish to go when they hit the ground. I guess that goes to that experience thing but it's something that should just kind of be instinct.
