The job he did on the hood is EXACTLY what Detroit should do with the 2008. I think he did a GREAT JOB!
I really don't think the photos he posted does this car enough justice, to be honest. I bet it looks a lot better in actual appearance.
I don't think the wheels look bad, but I like the 2001 version better than the black wheels. I don't think they look too big but 17(s) might be a little softer ride and still handle just as well ... (???)
I haven't seen any quarter window louvers that I like on any of these cars. So far all the louvers I ahve seen look a little cheesy.
I didn't really like the louvers on the 67-68 neither, but at least they functioned. Personally I think this new body style looks best with the glass there as opposed to any louvers.
Chrome ... this body style needs a little chrome, for example bumpers, door handles, and quarter panel vents to echo the 67-68. Not too much, but just enough.
I think the new GT-CS front bumber assembly would look good on the 2008 BULLITT. It is a very distinctive design and probably directs air better.
I think somebody in the aftermarket now is doing retro Pony and Mach1 interiors for under $1-K. They offer these in vinyl and leather. Somebody ought to write them and ask them to do a 67-68 retro theme.
If I had the funds, I'd buy the FR500C in white, strip it and paint it DHG, BULLITTIZE it throughout and DRIVE IT EVERYDAY ~ !!! :wink:
It is always nice when someone goes down the Bullitt trail. He did a nice job. I agree the wheels and it is sitting to high.But it does make me want to go get some DHG paint for my wifes windvale blue mustang.
