Yes it's true. I've stopped driving my Bullitt...to the gym every morning! You see, the gyms only 5 minutes away. THEY say the hardest thing on your engine is starting it. I figure why start her just to drive 5 minutes down the road. I figure if I take good care of her I'll have her that much longer. So I took the 81 Buick Skyhawk wagon to the gym today. I'm thinking if I punch holes through the cars floor I'll get to the gym faster (via Flintstone propulsion). I'm gonna get killed in the wagon. I'll pull out in front of a Mac truck with plenty of time.. ooops wrong car. Seriously my driving habits have to be drasticly modified for my old car. I've gotten used to that Bullitt torque!

You are right, it is dangerous going from a Bullitt to another car. When I was in Germany recently I rented a BMW 318i. Nice little 4 door sedan but only a 2 liter 4 banger. I kept on moving into the left lane trying to pass cars, thinking I could do it quickly, only to have Porsches come up on me at 150MPH, flashing their lights because I was blocking their way. :wink:

I've stopped driving mine to work and to the Big City. Philadelphia that is. I kept my 93 Taurus for that duty instead of trading it in. 158000 miles and still runs like a top. Ford either did something very right or very wrong, depending on your perspective, with that car. But, I did bring good ol' 2759 to work today. It's just too nice out to leave 'er under the covers today. The Fall here in PA is prime.
