I know he could drive the snot out of a gold colored Firebird as Jim Rockford too.

Augh, but what about the snot powered Firebird in Night Rider. Now that was a fully autonomous, green vehicle which could jump higher and run faster.

Only slightly more seriously, due to the line of reasoning in this thread, it might be time to pull out the Bullit DVD (IN SURROUND SOUND STEREO).

Some of the candidates include:
  • The five hubcabs that fall off of the Dodge Charger.

  • A quieter San Francisco with no traffic congestion.
  • The way the 440 Magnum Charger pulls on the 390 Mustang on the straightaway.
  • The way the Charger literally torques sideways as it pulls away from the Mustang on the straightaway.
  • The way Steve McQueen overrevs the engine and totally floats the valves and maxes out the ignition when he is pulling out the stops on the country road.
  • Bullit green.
  • 440 Magnum.
  • The jazzy 60s music in the buildup to the chase
  • The emphasis on the Charger's wheel man buckling up his seatbelt before he runs away.
  • Flashing back to 1968 and remembering actually getting carsick in the theatre during the hilly scene.

Yes.

I remember the actors talked about how that Charger would pull the guts out of the Mustang for shear HP.

I also remember MAD Magazine did a funny comic using Bullit movie scenes, wailing cars and bad guys managing to shoot each other.

Hmmmm ... The Dungeon scholarly research entities wish to formally acknowledge that we had not noticed the 5-hubcap situation. To expiate our shame at missing this vital detail, we shall implement an (admittedly minor) reduction in this month's embezzlement rate.

As far as the Golden Gate bridge situation, I think Suze and Twee-Twee have been playing games with Tardis again!

That chase sequence constitutes Muscle Car's finest moment!

Me, I just thought that the takedown Model 97 Winchester was cool. I have never been to San Fran, so I wouldn't have known about the whole bridge deal. and the five hubcap thing, well..... did the spare have a hubcap back before quality went south?

Or, you can diligently watch the chase scene as a homework assignment (hint, the Charger loses two hubcabs during the crash scene).

When they do show the ocean, it is correctly on their right. But there are other scenes which could not have been filmed on highway one. There is even a building which I am pretty sure is now near Santa Rosa (North).

Yup, but there are a bunch of films which take a close second:
Two Lane Blacktop
Vanishing Point
Smokey and the Bandit
American Graffiti
For chase scenes, the following do very well:
Vanishing Point
The Seven Ups
Ronin
Gator

but wait, there's more.

You aren't missing anything. I live 50 miles form there and I've been there less than a dozen times.

Yeah, no kidding. "I have a surprise for you under my raincoat." Well, maybe if he put it that way, then the shotgun would be a welcome surprise. Anyhow, it reminds me of why I never go to San Francisco.

Maybe today, they would have lost a space saver spare.

Last week, Japanese scientists placed explosive detonators at the bottom of Lake Loch Ness to blow Nessie out of the water. Sir Cort Godfrey of the Nessie Alliance summoned the help of Scotland's local wizards to cast a protective spell over the lake and its local residents and all those who seek for the peaceful existence of our underwater ally.

Blow through supercharger on a car with enough body panels replaced that it might be a funny car. On the otherhand, it comes from Bullman's personal photobucket account.
I'm unsure of what this is and want more information.
Who owned this car?
Did you get to drive it?
Was a pair of Depends required equipment for the driver?
and of course, the typical specifics (Make, Model, C.I.D., horsepower, 1/4 mile E.T. etc.).

Inquiring gearhead minds want to know.

If you watch the movies "Mad Max" and "The Road Warrior" you will know about all I know about the car.

Actually I do know more, it is an Australian 1972 Ford Falcon XB Coupe, and as one of my phone ringtones tells me, "She sucks nitro, phase 4 heads, twin overhead cams, 600 horsepower through the wheels" the car ended up being the wheels issued to one Max Rockatansky, aka Mad Max. The supercharger is in the movie a faker of some sort, because your supposed to be able to turn it on and off, which in reality wouldn't work very well.

The front end was some sort of Monza fabrication of some sort and it had some spoilers and zoomies.

Australian in orign 'ey. That explains a lot. Just like their animals, their cars evolved in a uniquely Oz direction.

Yeah, the idea of putting a clutch pulley (like a cars air conditioner) onto a supercharger initially seems to be a big winner. On further analysis, the engine would either be overboosted with the supercharger on or anemically low in compression with the blower off. ..... probably both .....

Detail note.....
I didn't include Steve McQueen in my list, because he was actually a far better 2 WHEEL driver than a 4 wheeler !
Also....for the homework assignment:
Not only does the Charger lose 5 hubcaps, if you watch real close, it DOESN'T crash, but rather goes THRU the gas depot.
In fact, after the filming was over, both the Charger & the 'Stang were sold at a studio prop auction, and both exist in private collections (with documentation) today.
Also, the scene where McQueen misses the turn & smokes the tires in reverse......
THAT, kiddies, was an "OOOOOPSS" on S.M.'s part, he wasn't supposed to miss it, he overshot his braking point !
But it looked so good that they left it in !

Nice link. The Australians do know how to make a nice car.

It worked out well. Nothing like completely shredding a set of bias ply tires.

Hmmmmm ... I think it may be appropriate for the 10-Ring Resort inhabitants to address the aforementioned cabana boy as "You lucky bastard!"

The 10 Ring

Godzilla would kick the Loch Ness monster's ass and steal his lunch.
Nessie just floats around, playing hide and seek with tourists, but Godzilla is a seasoned combat veteran with numerous victories against the Japanese Air Force.

Besides, the Loch Ness monster doesn't really exist.
