Eat It, Fincher: The 'Bullitt' Title Sequence

A couple of years ago, we went on a secret mission in the Bay Area in an attempt to win back an old girlfriend. It ultimately did not pan out, but it did get us laid a couple more times, so we suppose that's something, depending on how one slices it. The soundtrack to said secret mission? None other than the Bullitt score. Now, one may think that this has little or nothing to do with cars, other than the fact that the movie contains what's widely considered the most influential chase ever committed to celluloid. But one would be wrong. If today's cars were as awesome as this movie's opening title sequence, we'd have nothing to write about. If there were any justice in this world, Lalo Schifrin's name would come right behind Steve McQueen's in the credits. Also, for extra Jalopnik points, watch for the '68 El Camino.
