My favorite Mustang is still "Eleanor" from 'Gone in 60 seconds' (2000), which sold for $1M at auction last year. (Some Eleanor copies also cost a small fortune.) Every now and then I pop in the blu-ray (set audio to PCM track), jump to chapter 25 and crank up the volume. The engine start-up in the garage and lopey idle bring back some (very) old memories from a simpler, better time. (Movie-wise however, I'd pick 2011's Drive over GI60S.)
