Went to the SF auto show last night to see the Bullitt and could not be more disapionted. First, it was BLACK! No offense to the Black guys but c`mon...a new car in SF with a Bullitt theme in BLACK YIKES! My son, a Mustang and Ford fan liked the "stealth" look. For me, ford completely missed the mark. Seeing the GT parked next to it I honestly think the GT looked far better. The dash on the new Mustangs has been a sore spot for me...it looks like they stopped designing when they got to the interior. Now, having said that, I have rented a Hertz Shelby and loved it (once I got the traction control button figuered out). The look, the feel, they flat nailed it. This is only one mans opinion but #1843 looks far better, is far cheaper, and for far less than a new one can have the hp if wanted. For me it is about Bullitt, Mcqueen, and the movie mistique. If you think not many people know what your 01 is, NO ONE but a full on Bullitthead is going to know what the 08 is. I was fully prepared to go for the 08....I am in mourning and need to go pout now.
