Don't take this the wrong way, but for a guy who looks for slip-ups in movies, you sure don't pay too much attention . "Eleanor" is *any* '67 Shelby GT500, not just the one in the big chase, so the car that Kip gives him is obviously not meant to be the same car.

Obviously, that car is not meant to be's not the same car. Why would they strip all of the paint off her at the junk yard? And she got crushed up a bit by that claw...the car in the end is not meant to be Eleanor, just similar to her.

If you paid any attention to the movie, you would know that Elenor is not the name of that particular car. It is the name of a Shelby GT 500!! The make and model of the car. Every 67 Shelby GT 500 is Elenor.

Oh my God, nobody seems to know what this guy was trying to say. He's saying that they are the same car, but with different mirrors. There's nothing said about it being the same car, just the same type of car has different mirrors. And in the end when he say "you bought me a car" proves that he bought the car, not salvaged it

Even if it was the same car, the mirror on the passenger side was broken, remember the truck? So they would have to replace it.

Not sure if this is true, but the way I saw the film (and it's a damn awesome film at that) is like this.... With Collitri dead, Exeter salvage & steel was un-run, so to speak. This means the 'shredded' Shelby GT 500, which by the way is the most beautiful machine ever made by man, was up for grabs. I thought Kip took the beauty back to the yard where it was restored by Kip & a couple of the other guys on the boost (my memory of names deserts me at this point), and then presented to Memphis at the barbecue. Comments greatly appreciated, I don't mind being told I'm wrong, but thats just how I saw it....
