Me, I am! We have had Bullette for 4 months now and have 7,000 miles on her. I don't drive her much either, but I know with more practice I will have the shifting down better. I let hubby do all the racing at lights. (Haven't lost yet)! Now where's that wood?
I don't think there are too many of us women Bullitt owners out there. I'm sure the majority of Bullitts are driven by men. I love my Bullitt soooooo much. I love the way my husband meekly asks me if he can drive my car. I tell him to be nice to me or I will take away his keys (just kidding).
Well,my wife wouldn't fit in that category. To her,cars are just an appliance,like a washer,dryer.....Just get you from here to there. She really dosen't understand this musclecar thing. Our little struggle for 26 yrs.!
I drive #2832. My husband drives her on occasion but he really doesn't like stick shifts. Me, I LOVE it!! This is my first fast car and I am having fun getting on it. Only 1 street race so far, which I lost, but I intend to improve.
Hey ladies, tonight I asked my wife (PAULA) to drive my Bullitt around the block so I could see the red calipers as she drove by. Well, she drove by alright, had to be doing double the speed limit when she went by. I heard her hot rodding it pretty good all the way around the block. I flaged her down and she drove right by me and didn't come back for a while. When she got back she had a huge Sh** eating grin on her face. Said, "anytime you want to see your calipers just ask" Even though it's officially MY car, I thing you ladies just found another Bullitt lady. Should I hide my keys?
I wanted a Bullitt from the first time I saw a picture of the prototype. My daily driver is a 97 GT which was almost paid for and my plan was to use it's title to get money for a 70 Mach I when it was paid for. But the Bullitt squashed that plan for the time being.
However, Mike was against getting a new car, UNTIL I decided I could keep the 97 as MY car and told him the Bullitt would be a WE car. He loved that... So technically it's OUR car, but of the almost 2100 miles on it, I've driven it about 15-1600 going to out of state shows - Rocky Mountain Roundup and International Mustang Meet. And I make the payments.
But he is the one to chirp the tires and haul A$$. I nearly clubbed him when I heard he took our pregnant daughter for a little ride at 130 mph!!
I allow my husband to wash my Bullitt, wax my Bullitt, vaccuum out my Bullitt, brag about my Bullitt, even dream about my Bullitt. For all that, I will let him drive it as long as he doesn't put too many miles on it. I think he loves my Bullitt almost as much as I do. There have been occasions when he slips up and calls it His Bullitt. Can you believe that??????? I have to say, he does look awesome driving it. But, I have to gently remind him that the grocery mobile (Ford Windstar) is now his. He just gets a cute little smile on his face...
When we ordered our Bullitt, Hubby said that it was for me and that I would be driving it the most. NOT!!! I would be, though, but I don't want to be leaving it at work in the parking lot getting door dings all day. So of the 7,200 miles on the odometer, I believe I have put about 2,000 of them on! Hummmm, I wonder what hubby is doing while I am at work? :lol:
