The two guys are together and keep a pretty light tone throughout the track. They seem to be having a lot of fun doing this. They mention that they haven’t seen the movie in a long time. Despite that, they still have a great memory of the shoot and details about what happened while shooting some sequences. They talk about everything from the editing to Mr. Halicki to the cars. They talk about ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’ and Mr. Halicki’s philosophy about action (he loved action but not violence, so not much blood in the movie). They go into indie filmmaking also – they they only had one Bricklin and one yellow Corvette because it cost less (and because if the car broke down, Mr. Halicki and his crew could fix it). Another bit of information: after the success of ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’, Mr. Halicki bought a piece of land, turned it into a junkyard and worked out of there (to distribute his movies and stuff like that). They talk throughout the track. To be honest, this track is a lot better than I thought it would be. It’s never really boring and highly enjoyable.
