The Bullitt goes to Auction today!
« on: January 10 2020, 10:37:04 AM »
I turned the TV on this morning and good morning America was on and they were talking about the original Bullitt that will be going for auction today at Mecum.  The guy bought the car back in 74 for $3500.  It is expected to get $2-$5 million dollars!

There was but those one's I believed took the jumps and got destroyed.  This was the main one and still has the camera mounts and hole in the trunk for the smoke machine.

Someone's about to lose their ass.

The years of old rich guys that will pay stupid money for a 70s movie car are just about over.     What, with all the obituaries and all.  :D

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

That's a lot of rental property that could have been bought instead of that car.
