Hello, I started a Facebook group for the Blues Brothers 2000 Bluesmobiles to sort of keep track of the 17 cars built for the movie and what they were used for, if they survived and where they are now. I've got them all on there except #42 and #57 (the two that I own) because I plan on going a little more in-depth with them… I also plan on adding a toy article, and possibly a replica section. Anyways, if you want to check it out, follow it, add something to it, correct something etc.. everybody's welcome!
Great page! I've long been interested in learning all I can about the BB2K Blumos. I hope to have a replica in the relatively near future, and would love to have it on the page if you do add a section for replicas.
"Sir, how much would something like that full-size Ford police package in the middle there run me?"

Yes I did pick up #57 from Leo. I have paid for it but haven't got it home yet. I plan on replacing the frame. I actually picked up a replacement from a local wrecker and am having it sand blasted and powder coated. I will share progress pics as everything happens.
I have owned #42 since 2010 and have done pretty much everything mechanical on it... From the transmission, breaks, brake lines, rad, starter, alternator, fuel pump, gas tank... Even the wiper motor is new. Body and frame wise It was in excellent condition so there luckily wasn't a lot to do there.
I'm glad there is so much interest in these cars... Even Murphy Dunne from the Blues Brothers Band has joined my page!

I agree, great page! I really was upset that I didn't get Leo's number 57 but I think it went to a better home. My daughter is now on a BB2K kick and it would have been cool to have that car but I'm still a Mopar guy so the Monaco will do me just fine. Anyone notice that Elwood became more like Joe Friday in the second movie?
Movie? Not so good - music? Fantastic. I heard from sources Aykroyd wouldn't even acknowledge he made the film if you ask him. The cars are pretty cool! I joined your page. I'm a Monaco guy in Dallas.
I agree but saying the movie was "not so good" is like saying the Titanic was a small oops, but I have to agree the music was good and it was great to see all of the legends performing together. I also like the CV LTD police cars, I was never really into them until seeing that movie. My daughter really likes BB2K but she's 2 (almost 3, next week), she likes the kid in the movie so we get to see it A LOT!
