Props to Eleanor, the 1971 Mustang used: Despite having been through automotive hell, the car, as of 2009, is still in running condition!

* ThrowItIn: During the climactic chase sequence, Eleanor was accidentally clipped from the rear by another car, causing it to spin out of control and collide with a lamp post. The collision was kept in the film for dramatic effect. Also, the derailed train at the very start of the film was a real one, which Halicki happened to come across, so he incorporated it into an EstablishingCharacterMoment scene.

Made by H. B. "Toby" Hallicki, known as [[MeaningfulName The Shoestring Salesman]] (who did all of his own stunts) on a budget of almost nothing.

* RealitySubtext: Pace's line of "Last of the Mustangs" may seem odd to modern viewers since the Mustang has been in continuous production since its introduction in 1964, but he's referring to the Mustang II, introduced for the 1974 model year and based on the ''much'' smaller Pinto platform (but, like the Bobcat and Pinto wagons, it had a different rear axle and gas tank location, avoiding the [[EveryCarIsAPinto infamous defect]]).



* ThrowItIn: The train crash at the beginning was an actual crash that Hallicki couldn't pass up, and the Cadillac that clipped Eleanor's bumper causing it to hit a lamp post was an accident, which Hallicki, after regaining consciousness, asked "Did we get coverage?".

* ThatOneCase: Eleanor, the only car to give him trouble. After deciding to return one stolen from Harold Smith, an insurance claims adjuster notorious for denying claims (and screwing over more people than Pace's brother-in-law) [[ForTheEvulz just to see him weasel his way out of it]], he steals an unisnured Mustang that Pumpkin, his fiancée, insists he return. He then steals another Mustang from the International Tower in Long Beach, only for it to be staked out, resulting in a massive police chase.
