Notice anything different? I’ve finally managed to have the site upgraded to something a bit better looking and more manageable. It’s been a long time coming. Apart from the look the site now has better ways of managing images, posts and user comments which I’m sure all of you will notice.
We’ve all heard the story of Unique Performance, the once unstoppable company pumping out some magnificent, official, Eleanor vehicles to cashed up customers. Their downfall consumed most of the stories about vintage mustangs of 2008 which included the police investigations into fraud, the use of prisoners to build their cars, the auctioning off of all assets and of course the hundreds of customers who lost thousands of dollars.
Sorry it’s been a while between updates, I’ve been working on some site updates which have included an upgrade to the backend and a great new look for the site which you will see in the next few days!
Anyway Toby has just returned from the states where he met up with
If you bought an Eleanor Mustang from Unique Performance, do you sometimes want to give it back? Well you can’t so if you were one of the lucky ones (or unlucky ones) to come out of the whole Unique Performance saga with a car you may have found that the engine overheats or doesn’t make the power it should, or the suspension components don’t work quite right or the car have some other quality issue.
It was last year when I posted about RRS having secured the rights to distribute the Dynacorn Fastback body shells here in Australia. Well a few months have passed and they are now available to the public.
It’s no doubt by now you have heard about the devastating bushfires that are going on in Australia. We’re in the midst of the worst bushfire disaster in Australian history with almost 200 people confirmed dead with that number expected to rise. It’s truly horrific.
Now this is very much last years news but I never reported on it and think it’s quite interesting for the non-US readers. Sutton Bespoke, a Clive Sutton company has struck a deal with Oaklahoma based Classic-Recreations to be the only authorised dealer in the UK. Check out the video after the jump.
Well I’ve been overseas and slightly out of the loop. I totally missed all of Barrett-Jackson recently but lets have a look back at the Mustangs that were on show there thanks to Autoblog. The Eleanor above is one of the original “Eleanors” from the movie “Gone in 60 Seconds”. Apparenlty one of only 3 remaining. Check all of the cars out after the jump.
Well the last I mentioned about Toby’s car was that it was just about ready for the paint booth. Now after a brief Christmas and New Years break Toby’s 1968 Eleanor is even closer to completion.
