Came across the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt the other nite.
I just had to T-Vo the chase scene & make my kids watch it.
My son dug my daugher was not that impressed. Go figure.

I think now I need to see Papillon again. I'm sure its been 25 yrs since I saw it.

I have the original "Vanishing Point" in my Netflix queue.

...Speaking of chase scenes...

I forgot about that one.
Nothing like a good period piece w/ fast cars & fast...

I hope it aged well.

Somethings that were huge are unwatchable today.
Welcome Back Kotter comes to mind.

The chase scene in Bullit was a complete fabrication. If you know the bay area, you'll know that they turned corners into areras that were 15 miles away from the beginning of the turn! And a 289 Mustang beating a 440 Charger...common!!

Still, a great film!

"Vanishing Point" was on the other night too. An oldie and a goodie.

As a Challenger lover (I've owned several), I loved that movie! Several Challengers were used in the film. One big secret in that movie that most people don't catch comes when the car finally smashes into the train. If you look very closely, you can see that it's a Camero!! Not a Challenger! They had smashed up all the Challengers by that scene, and had tweaked and painted a Camero to look like a Challenger from the back! Holleywood is so silly.

I sat through "Vanishing Point" twice at the Center Theatre in the Fairlington Shopping Center. A couple years back I got it from Netflix and watched it with a bunch of guys from my street. It's a great choice for guys night at the movies.

Actually it was a 390 cid police interceptor motor and they could beat a 440 Charger. I had a 401 powered AMC Javelin that could blow the doors off a 440

depends on how built. I once had a 383 that would kill a 401, or any 390. The 390 was a torque monster, but not a high rpm mortor. And the Mustang in the movie was not a 390. But this is all personal perspective so I won't reply on it again.

"A Highland Green 1968 Mustang GT 390 Fastback was the car of choice for Steve McQueen's character in 1968's Bullitt." from the Mustang Source .

Please research your facts more thoroughly because you are wrong when it comes to the engine in that mustang. [/quote]
