Eddie The Eagle plans to help the Big E fly.

On the highway, that is.

At his high-tech Carman Custom hot rod restoration shop in central Michigan, Ed Belfour and his crew are customizing a 1968 Mustang for Eric Lindros, the Eagle's new teammate on the Maple Leafs.

By the time the project is complete, the Big E's muscle car will be a replica of the one driven by Nicolas Cage in Gone in 60 Seconds.

"Hopefully it will be completed (next summer)," Belfour said.

In the past, Belfour's Carmen Custom operation has produced hot rods for the likes of Cage, Pat Verbeek, Rob Blake, Mikael Renberg and Roberta McCabe.
