Today’s Concept… Eleanor’s Sister RONELE from GONE IN 60 SECONDS!

In an early version of GONE IN 60 SECONDS, the new Mustang at the time was to play a part as RONELE (Eleanor Backwards!) But alas, the Stang wasn’t ready so they went with the original. Here’s one of my concepts…

Is the Gone in 60 Seconds ’67 MUSTANG the King of all Movie Cars?

What do you think? If not this film car… then which one exemplifies the KING OF MOVIE CARS? LEAVE A COMMENT!

Were any other cars considered for the film GONE IN 60 SECONDS?

YES. Before the Studio considered using a Classic Mustang for the film “Gone in 60 Seconds,” we considered creating a new one but Ford was not ready to launch the new car. These were the concepts I did in secrecy based on Ford’s new design. Glad we went with the Classic instead.

Originally, GI60S was to be a new version of the Mustang, but Producers decided on the classic. Although this would have been cool, the original was better.

Fireball’s Autoinspiration #2 Imagination

Everyone loves concepts. New cars that come out reflecting wild visions of future rides, future hot rods you want to build and concept art from film. But why?

We all want to be “inspired.” Being inspired leads us to action. The best kind of action. And in action, we create and manifest our lives in positive ways.

I get tons of emails from car people showing me their latest rides and concepts. That inspires me to always push the envelope. You guys keep “me” going. With our day in and day out lives, our only true escape is imagination. It’s why we like going to movies, watching “good” TV and socializing. Ideas make us use our imaginations creatively, then we work out plans to make those visions real. And the best part is that we share it in lots of ways. But they arent’ just cars.

We are all designers of sorts. You can design a weekend, a trip to Europe, a canyon run, clothing, an evening dinner. We draw, build, go to car shows, create, watch what we hope will be something good at the movies, just plain have fun to use our imaginations and build “our lives.” Something to make them better. My hope is that my books help to do that for you.

These books give a bit of background as to how cars for film are envisioned. But since it costs so much to buy things nowadays, I decided to create ebooks so that everyone could have them cheaply. Super cheap. They cover designs for “Gone in 60 Seconds,” “Batman,” “Green Hornet” and even Weapons like the H2Obliterator and the EMOdistruptor. I’ll keep ’em coming as long as you guys want them. Check ’em out and let me know what you think.
