You may think it strange, but I enjoy listening to the type of soundtrack music you might find on a film like Get Carter, Bullitt or The Ipcress File. Much crime drama TV produced during the ’70s used these films as their model, and a huge number were produced all requiring incidental music. Amazingly, this music was…
That trophy goes to a lifted pickup truck from the seventies. But what are these cars doing in Dubai in the first place? Enjoying sand dunes and long stretches of open tarmac. Duh.
On March 24th, 1930 one of the highest paid Hollywood actors Steve McQueen was born in Beech Grove, Indiana. McQueen's popularity skyrocketed after playing starring roles in huge hits like The Great Escape, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt, and Le Mans.
If this 1968 Dodge Charger manual was real, this would easily go down in history as the baddest-ass owner's manual in all of human culture. Sadly, it's not, but that doesn't mean we can't take a moment to really appreciate it.
Besides Steve McQueen's impeccable coolness, everyone knows the best thing about 1968's Bullitt is the famous chase scene between Det. Frank Bullitt's Mustang GT and the nefarious black Charger R/T. What if it happened at England's Silverstone Circuit instead of the streets of San Francisco?
Were you inspired to go out and get yourself a Bullitt Mustang after my story last week about how it's destined to become a future classic? If so, consider completing the look by investing in the brown blazer that Steve McQueen wore in the iconic film.
We have yet to feature an American car on Future Classics, and that is an oversight I plan to correct today. And I will do so in the most American way possible — with a V8-powered Ford Mustang that takes its name from a Steve McQueen movie famous for a car chase.
It may not be a dark green Mustang, but this is your chance to own a piece of history from the legendary Steve McQueen flick Bullitt. As long as you're prepared to pay a million dollars for it, anyway.
You know that one movie? The one that had a car in it? Reddit does.
The TV show Alcatraz knows how to do a season finale properly. For the end of their first season, they remade the infamous chase scene from Bullitt — shot-for-shot. Well, actually, they did throw in a few extra corners.
We've been eagerly awaiting the 1/32-scale Bullitt chase since we first saw Stephen Day's trailer back in February. Day just sent us this updated version, which includes a premiere date. Get your tiny bags of popcorn ready for February 2012.
Give credit to the director of this music video for making me volunteer to listen to this remarkably awful song in order to see a period correct-looking Charger and Mustang race around the streets of San Francisco. It's for the song "Fun" by someone named Sharam. It's like "Friday" but less catchy and more repetitive.
The estate of Steve McQueen and Gateway Classic Mustang teamed up to build the ultimate tribute to his highland green Mustang from Bullitt. It's got a Roush 450-hp V8 small block and trick suspension. All it lacks is a name.
If you've endured a smoke-filled dorm screening of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon dubbed over The Wizard of Oz without lapsing into a coma, you'll dig this "fusion" of Mahavishnu Orchestra and the Bullitt chase. Dude, it works!
A slot enthusiast is shooting and editing a shot-by-shot remake of the famous Bullitt chase in 1/32nd scale. Here's the amazing trailer.
For all the attention Steve McQueen has received for the famous chase in "Bullitt," he only drove 10% of the scene. Marc Myers got to drive the route with the stuntman who deserves credit for the scene. -Ed.
English director Peter Yates, known to enthusiasts as the director of Bullitt and therefore cinema's most famous car chase, passed away today at age 82. Here's the 11 minutes we'll always remember him for.
