A while back, I copied/pasted ALL of the 08/09 registry, and dumped it into MS Word, and had it count all the instances of black versus green. (I obviously don't have children.) My result was 18.X percent black. Say 1 in 5, assuming that IMBOC is representative of the whole production run.

I've owned many black cars, including my black Bullitt, and each time I've said, "No more black cars!" Just because they're such a pain to take care of, and I'm pretty anal retentive. However, I will say that nothing looks better than a nice, clean, glossy black paint job! IMHO, anyway!

That said, I would've bought my car in DHG. Reason why I didn't was that I had turned my dad (he's 75) onto getting a Bullitt, and he saw and bought the DHG car in the showroom. When I went to help him pick it up, they (very intentionally, right in front of me) rolled out the only other one they had, a black one, to replace the one in the showroom that dad was buying. I was in love, and had just turned 40 the month before, so I said what the heck and bought the black one 3 weeks later. I have to admit, I love DHG...but also, my black one was a stunner when they rolled it in!

My bottom line: both look their best when parked next to each other on my dad's driveway when I go to visit my folks. I'll leave it at that!

That driveway has to be the best-looking driveway in the City! Way to go! Congrats on having one Bullitt of each color in the family - and on having a Dad who is a Bullitthead at age 75! I bet your Dad gives you a hard time about having the "black sheep in the family"?!:lol:

I just noticed that you are from the SF Bay Area. Have you and your Dad simulated the Bullit chase scene route with him chasing you as the bad guy?:badgrin:

I just scheduled my vacation next April for SF. I hope to drive the chase scene route.:cool:

Yeah, Al...my dad gives me a hard time for not having the "real" Bullitt color. Then I remind him that black is more rare, and looks badass. He thinks it's funny.

We haven't done the chase scene, but it sounds like fun. When you visit SF, why don't you rent a Charger, and I'll chase you through the route? :lol:

Somehow, I doubt I'll have much of a problem catching you, but I promise not to run you off the road into a gas station (unless you shoot at me).

I was reading this thread on Sunday. I thought to myself, I've never seen a black B in and around the south Texas area.

On my way to a sports bar I was sandwiched between the new guys(Camaro SS and 5.0 Mustang)in the lefthand turning lane. When a black Bullitt flew past me on my right side, stop, and signal to turn right towards Laredo, Texas. It had black staggered Bullitt styled wheels, definetly cammed, and of course, aftermarket A/B's. It was good to see it when I was outnumbered. The light turns green, he makes the turn straightens it out and lets loose. Almost like he was letting me know I got your back. Perfect timing indeed. They do look tuff. Greens my thing though.

This is one of my favorite Bullitts. Last I heard, it was for sale in SC. That was a couple years ago so I do not know where it ended up.
