Life before "Bullitt"

I'd like to have seen Steve McQueen's famous car chase deal with this little street of San Francisco - allegedly shot 4 days before the massive quake, April 18th, 1906

Ah, It played this try.

Bloody hell, I thought our roads were bad. I think that some of it was not as 'natural' as it is supposed to be, The camera would have been huge! Good pictures though..

1967-68 Mustangs were best of breed! I want to fully restore one, and set it up as a squad. It would be used for public relations, mostly, as it would attract young people, so they could meet the cops, and find out that the Piggy Wigs are only your enemies, if you make them your enemies.

All black, with white ScotchLite markings, brushed aluminum wheels, and a Federal LED JetStream lightbar

Met my old tutor constable yesterday Hog. Several beers and stories of the old days - including our famed 'French Connection' chase of bad guys through Knutsford on a commandeered tandem. We now print the legend, of course. Think I spotted Bill in your video!

They don't havce pursuits like they used to. Sticking with a Mk 2 Cortina GT as it flees an off licence blag, with bottles of scotch bouncing off our Rover V8 as they tried to put us off. Fancy thinking we'd stop to pick up bottles of JW Red Label.....now Black label is another matter...
