The cinematic cars of "Bullitt" (1968)

An obvious one (it’s inevitable), but my god it’s wonderful just the same. The music. The noises. The action.

And wholly fitting, given that McQueen would have turned 80 recently. Plenty of hagiographies in the automotive “blogosphere” this past week.

We’re not going to bother reinventing the wheel (lots of ink already spilled about the movie, the man, and the cars), so we’re mostly going to shut up at this point and leave you with the film.

Enjoy.

Neat ‘behind the scenes’ documentary here— well worth watching.
