"Whenever I see a green '67 or '68 Mustang fastback, I immediately, and without thinking, conjure up images of Lt. Frank Bullitt piloting his Mustang down the streets of San Francisco in pursuit of the menacing 1968 Charger. I can't help it. It just happens! From the first time I watched the movie, "Bullitt," I thought to myself ... "That looks like fun. I would love to do that!" ... So I did! Now with the release of Ford's new Bullitt Mustang, the next generation will ask us why is this such a special car? And it's our responsibility to tell them, or better yet, go to San Francisco, rent a new Mustang, and show them why!" MICHAEL IRVINE
The release of the newest Bullitt Mustang reflected the continued excitment of a car chase scene from a 40 year old movie that's become generational. It reminds us all, that the "chase lives on!"
This painting is based on a scene from the famous movie. In the movie, you're in the back seat looking at Steve McQueen's character, Frank Bullitt, in profile and the cars parked on either side of the street are just a blur. Michael takes you out of the car, turns you around and has the cars cresting the hill towards you ... and all those parked cars are now viewed from the other side and are in full focus!! Ever present, the assassin's black 1968 Charger is reflected in the front bumpers of the cars as they bear down on their prey.
In San Francisco, Michael and his family, doing the "Bullitt Run":
