With the car from Bullit coming up for sale soon, I thought it would be good to revisit the car chase.

How much would you pay for this iconic car?

I started out with nothing and still have most of it left.

Fast, Cheap, Reliable. Choose any 2.

Bullitt is on everyone's Top Ten Car Chase lists, but if you watch it closely, you'll see that the director repeatedly shows the same shots but from different angles.

At the top of my list might be To Live and Die in L.A. where there's a wrong-way freeway chase that defies belief, a kind of Ronin on steroids. Also up there has to be great chase in The French Connection, filmed in Brooklyn, New York, and without the city's permission.  :)

My favorite is the chase scene from "What's Up, Doc?", also filmed in San Francisco. Chase begins at 1:05:30.

The Seven Ups
They stole a lot from the Bullit chase.

Bill Hickman, a legendary stunt driver, is the bad guy behind the wheel in both Bullitt and The Seven-Ups.  :)

I thought they looked alike. I wasn't sure.

$2000, I'd rather have a Boss 302 with a limited slip differential. :)

:lol: Richard Burton must have been sober that day.

I always liked Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. Larry had the best car. That movie is another example that Vic Morrow had little fear of danger. He'd pay dearly several years later. :(

The old Gone in 60 Seconds isn't bad either. I had a Mach One similar to that Mustang. I also liked the movie that Ryan O'Neal was a hired driver for bank robberies, The Driver. Car chase movies must have been popular in the 1970s.

There is a good chase in a movie with James Woods. It takes place in Los Angeles on Sunset Blvd.
