Bullitt, 2001

December 10, 2001

No, they're not making a Shaft-esque redux of the '68 Steve McQueen movie. But Ford decided to release a limited edition "Bullitt Mustang" by doing a little body work on their GT Mustang to make it look like McQueen's '67 and adding a little horsepower. They even brought back the greenish paint from the classic car.

I want one. Only problem is I'm about $27,000 short.

(Footnote: For those who haven't seen it, Bullitt is a pretty run-of-the-mill '60s detective movie. A couple now-famous actors played alongside McQueen. The story's forgettable, but the 5 to 10 minutes of car chase through the streets of San Francisco basically created the modern car chase. If you haven't seen it, go rent it.)
