Steve McQueen was the epitome of cool.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Watch the Charger go flying off behind the explosion, I remember reading that didn't go quite as planned. The shifting sound effects are a little off... but none of it matters. Absolute classic.

I believe Steve McQueen's granddaughter is the driver.

I've got the movie on DVD and I've seen "the chase" many times.
Somewhere on the internet, many years ago, I read that the Mustang(s) in the movie had to have the suspension heavily modified to stay together.
The added sound effects seem a little cheesy at times, especially all the gear shifting.

Count the number of hubcaps flying off the Charger.

I like it when they put the lap belts on. A tell tale sign of the times right there.

Ha-Ha 1968 Bullitt....the car is green and Steve McQueen's turtleneck is blue.

In the 2013 version....the car is blue and the driver's turtleneck is green.

Very clever.

I watched a movie called "Wheelman" on Netflix a while ago, it was about a getaway driver going through a really rough night.
It was very interesting to me that the whole movie or close to it was shot from the interior of his car, but still managed to be very engaging and tell a complete story. I sort of picked it at random and ended up staying up late to finish it because it really grabbed me.

Absolute classic of a movie scene (or series of).

My friend had an '01. Never drove it. Sold it in '11 with less than 5000 miles. Dork.

Yeah, the excessive shifting sound effects! I also recall they double shifted the car at speed which seems
unnecessary.
