Wow, phenomenal film. I usually am partial to European cars, and usually am not big on mustangs, but damn, this car has presence in this film. Well done Petrolicious and Ford.
The theme of father passing car guy interest to his son is terrific. I tried by getting my son a beater e39 530i and my daughter a similar e46 330i. Both embraced the manual tranny. Car love is great. Thanks Petrolicious.
What did I say that would make you think that I consider myself 1/1000th as knowledgeable as you? I felt I was commenting with humor and good will and certainly did not mean to appear as an angry know-it-qll. I also think that any manual transmission is more engaging than any automatic and since the gentleman and his son did not take it back to original, why not add a stick shift, which would be more original as a Bullit clone anyway.
I felt the same “NOOOOOO”! He missed a golden opportunity to teach his kid how to shift. Next project with his son: Tremec 5 speed swap!
Interesting to have a Bullit Mustang in France. So maybe Frank Bullit quit the S.F. police force, changed his name, moved to France, and became an endurance racer before winning LeMans in 1970. Then he traded the Mustang in on that green 911S ;^)
I did have to watch it twice to figure out the wedding thing. Now I get it.
