Update! Pictures from my Bullitt's first road trip!

Update in Post #13!

Nothin fancy just some shots.

Vehcile had less than 100 miles on it when I left on this 350 mile trip. I take this trip about once a week but this time I decided to take the road less traveled and make a few stops along the way for some photos.







Anybody know where this tower is?

Neat stuff, I really like that overhead shot of the car. Those less traveled roads are the best ones to take in a machine like ours.

I'm still looking forward to the first big road trip in my Bullitt, which should be the Hearst Castle run in October. Got almost 1k miles on it so far but we've been no farther than 50 miles from the casa.

Yes it is pretty cool getting to drive some of the great expanses out west. In fact I've got another road trip tomorrow - this time I'll be going to the middle of nowhere Arizona about half way between Yuma & Gila Bend. Besides a couple of mountainous ranges (Tecate Pass) there’ll be some long open flat stretches.

Before I used to hate these trips but now I kind of looking forward to them. Like the trip above I think I'll leave a little early to enjoy some of the "off the beaten path" experiences along the way.

Cools pics! That'd be the Jacumba desert tower.

What do I win? :)
Close enough - In Ko Pah Tower just before you drop down into Imperial valley. Great view BTW!

There's also a lot of rock caves and carvings there to, that are worth checking out if you've never been. One of my favorite rest stops when I'm not rushed.

I should’ve made the question harder by asking folks from the San Diego or Imperial areas to refrain from answering my questions.

On another forum I took a picture of my truck in pretty much the same spot and asked if anybody knew where I was. Some of the answers where funny but the best was from a guy in New York who replied.

“Don’t know? But it looks like you’re about a thousand miles from a good restaurant”. :lol:

Ah yes, the fabulous I-8. I've driven it's entire length many times from Casa Grande, AZ to San Diego and will be taking my Bullitt on it for the first time later this year when I visit Tucson again. I love that route, not as much traffic as I-10 and lots of wide open spaces...great place to clear you head and enjoy some cruising!

Take it easy - it's only one of those stupid "Dealer Tags"! I've only had the car a couple of days and haven't even gotten my regular tags.

Edit: It actually says "Perry".

The Road Less Traveled

That is the only way to travel. I used to use the interstate highways here on the right coast but since I got the Bullitt I find myself searching for the back roads. I love driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. For those from up North heading for the Nationals in Myrtle Beach, you may want to consider the Blue Ridge Parkway through Va and NC. Yes, it will take a little longer, but a great drive for a great driving car. I used to hate it when driving the mini-van but love it when driving the Bullitt. :smile:

Most excellent thinking, Steve! :lol:

Great pics, Bret...the arid landscape really acentuates the Bullitt's lines. :)

Like Ken had mentioned, that front plate was kind of a shocker. :lol:
