Currently a project in progress, this is Eleanor. She is a 1973 Mach 1, an original WNY car.

More info on why her name is Eleanor:

In 1974, a Movie called "Gone in 60 Seconds" was created. The star was a 1973 Mach 1, yellow in color-code named Eleanor. The story line: steal 48 cars, and don't get caught. Only one car gives the theives a hard time-Eleanor. The movie includes a 40 minute long chase scene!
