The following is a totally true story.

I was having a really really bad day. A worse one than usual. Before gas had gotten so expensive, taking long drives down the highway would be my therapy. But I hadn't done that in a long time. And I was needing it on this day.

I asked my girlfriend if she would like to ride in my newly completed car for a test drive. After we maneuvered our way out of traffic land, the highway lay before us. The sun was hanging low in the sky, and there were only a few cars on the road. And what did one of those cars in front of us happen to be? Yes indeed, a black Charger SRT8 HEMI!

I couldn't resist, I had to pull in behind it. The whole time I was working on my car, I would joke to my girlfriend every time we saw a black Charger..."If my car was done, he'd be in big trouble". We got a laugh out of it. But now here it was, the moment was upon me. He was only going 60 in a 65 mph zone, but I didn't care, I was having fun.

We idled down the highway for a few miles, when my girlfriend said "this is fun, but I wish he was going faster". Just as I was about to agree, as if on cue, the Charger's exhaust pipes bellowed as he floored it and took off down the road! I don't know if he was a Bullitt fan too just waiting for a green Mustang to chase him, a complete maniac, or just looking for a little fun.

Whatever the reason, he was off. My girlfriend said "put the song on quick!" (the song being the chase theme on the Bullitt soundtrack in the cd player). I was already loading it when she said it. As soon as the music started, the chase was on. He had gotten about a quarter mile ahead of me, but I caught up with ease.

Before I knew it, we were doing 85 mph, down the four lane divided slice of heaven. The sun was setting low behind us, lighting up the clouds ahead, the music was blasting, we were cat and mouse lane switching, it was beautiful, my day was much much better now. I let him stay about 5 or 10 car lengths ahead of me, just in case there were any police waiting in the weeds. This went on for at least fifteen minutes until we got to the next town.

There wasn't any smashing into each other, or exploding gas stations, we slowed down, he went his way and I went mine. But it was good fun none the less. I hope he was a Bullitt fan too, so he could appreciate the magnitude of the moment, and tell tales of the time the green Mustang chased him down the highway. I just wished I had a video camera, it would have been some great footage. Oh well, maybe next time...I'll see him again.<br> <br> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i165.photobucket.com/albums/u71/a69stache/bullitt2016.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a>

That's rich! I would have loved to participate in something like this.:badgrin:

I work with a guy that bought a new black Charger. It's the HO V-6 though and he has no desire to be a part of any shenannigans/living out a dream that involves a Bullitt Mustang of any sort. What a kill joy!:doubt:
