The wonderful thing about Mustangs is you can make them your own, either stock or modified. I’m sure Steve McQueen would be glad to see the father /son bonding over Mustang. I get the same smile driving my 2008 Bullitt!

I am quite offended that this guy has a Confederate flag at 1:53 seconds in the video. You guys should know better. Shame on you.

Jeffrey Milarsky, you are absolutely right, in his defense though, most Europeans don’t know what this flag really stands for, they just grew up watching episodes of dukes of Hazard weekly..

By choosing the Bullet car, the owner has helped French American relations. That year mustang had independent rear suspension for 2 years and used the overhead cam setup from Lotus.

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.

Very nice car, however it would be much more enjoyable with a manual transmission a four or even better a five speed.

Nothing like car work to bond Dads and sons. I remember changing a couple of engines with my boys and even taught my daughter to do stuff. The cars are the icing on the cake. This Mustang is like the cherry on the whipped cream! Excellent story.

If this was Bullit’s car it really did need some serious restoration. Next project – that Charger! ;^)

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.

You can see by the way his eyes glow when he talks about the car, that he really LOVES his Mustang!

All the best to you, your family and the Mustang 🙂

His expression sitting in the car (0:45 thru 1:00) is priceless!
Where is the car registered? Can’t tell from the license plate.
Beautifully shot. Thank you!

By a couple of signs, looks like in the Alsace region.

Now, now Kafka, you know what the doctor said to do when your tighty-whiteys creep up… just take a pill.
