Its in our own back yard. I think this is going to be a good one for the books. I would like to Thank Tony & Eileen for putting this up for the club. ED

It would be a CRIME to miss this run

Count us in for sure.

This is one of my favorite movies...PERIOD! I was raised in SF and my younger brother returned from Vietnam with a bunch of back pay in his pocket...he watched Bullitt in the theater and went out and bought a '68 Charger (black) from the old Van Ness Dodge. I loved driving this car so much, I bought me one, a '69 Charger R/T. I owned my Charger 39 years. They were about 10-12 MPG in city driving, but who cared in those days. Premium was 36 cents! McDonalds cheese burger was .25! Those were the days cruising the streets of San Francisco in our new Chargers.

Note; two Chargers were used in the movie. It took three Mustang GT's to get thru the movie. The Ford engines were modified to keep up with the 440 Magnum Charger. No engine modifications were made on the Chargers. The Mustangs kept breaking suspension parts and the Chargers kept loosing hubcaps. Yes, the Charger looses 5 hubcaps.

Love these Animoto clips. Looks like you had a great time. But, someone should have told LeChief that there aren't any cup holders in that cockpit. I once worked at SFO for United and I remember those Flying Tiger 747's. Those 747's could haul a hi-bypass fanjet engine on a fifth wing pylon and when they did it looked so strange to see 3 engines on one wing and two on the other. It was an inovative design by Boeing to transport big jet engines.

FYI; we dodged a Bullitt (get it) our house suffered no damage in the Napa quake other than stuff in closets, bath and kitchen cabinets. garage shelving, fine china cabinet was tossed around and the loss of a ton of water knocked out of our spa. And the cover was on it!

The cat was missing for hours too. No power for 11 hours. Just long enough to melt the ice cream and warm my beer locker...
