Talking Too soon for those Bond cars...

We're getting off topic I know, but yes I do think Craig is equal to Connery, but different and hard to equate them. They are both believable in the role, both men of their times, and very different...

I have to agree. :smile2:

Think about it, every James Bond car that comes up for auction goes for millions, the last Aston went for $6.3+ million USD, the one before $4.6 USD back in 2010. And...

My thanks to Mike Farrell (no not CPT B.J. Honeycutt of MASH fame), who kindly sold me one of his rare model 503 mirrors.
So at least that part of my Bullitt replica will be movie correct!
Thanks...

Very nice, but as I already have a fairly nice 1/18 scale Bullitt model made by the same company (Green Light), on my desk its hard to justify buying the slightly bigger one for that price. If it was...

Lightbulb Hello!

Hi Mike,

Many thanks for that info, a couple of immaculate boxed NOS #503 mirrors came up on eBay in the last few months, and also one single, not unreasonably priced either. Unfortunately i saw...

Well that explains the rocker panel trims being shiny polished metal. I'll have to look into the rear quarter panel C curve ornaments a bit further, to see if they were painted over in the movie. You...

Well with the reveal of the slow shots car from Kentucky over the last few days the argument can be settled.

Cool Better than stock square one for sure

Certainly looks better than the big square 68 FoMoCo mirror. :wink2:

I don't think the "Yankee" ones were on such a long stalk as your one, but its certainly an improvement, so well done.

I'm...

Red face Agree

The Henry Ford Museum would be a fitting place for it. If it must belong to an individual then someone like Jay Leno would be my pick. A true enthusiast, who met McQueen, who drives all his vehicles,...

Great News!

That's great news. Kevin should (if allowed) be able to give it the examination it deserves.
