Decided I needed to pull the Mach out of the garage last weekend.
As I was getting in, I must have said out loud, "Wow, what a difference!".
My husband shook his head at me, and told me I was going to be disappointed driving her.
(You know, after all these months driving the Bullitt)
It's definitely a whole different experience, but she still felt good.
And I SWEAR to you...compared to that car, I feel invisible in the Bullitt. I cannot go down the block in the Mach without people stopping, pointing, thumb's up, etc...
ANYWAY...she ran great, she stopped fine, and she even started back up when I stopped her!
I still love her even if she thinks she's neglected!

Yes treva, I notice a big difference in the 69 and Bullitt too. She sits a lot lower and the ride is a lot stiffer and the steering is way looser. The seats seem like you're sitting on bricks compared to the Bullitt seats! :lol:

Mine has a 351W small block engine, H code. Automatic tranny. 2-barrel==250 hp. The 4-barrel 69's had 290 hp. Mine is all stock with 64,000 original miles. I have had it since 1987--2nd owner. It is in the shop as we speak getting new factory paint--Royal Maroon. It will be show quality! Hummmm do I show the 69 or the Bullitt at the next show? :grin:

Vicki...I was pondering the same question.

One year I asked my husband to bring his car so we'd have a before and after (resto)!

This year, I may have to ask him to drive one of them for me, cuz I think I want them both there.
I know...I'm a show off!

Very good! I was hoping one may have been a CJ428! But it sure is easier getting to the plugs in the 351Ws.

Yeah, well....what do you think I've been hoping for all these years????!!!

That's ALWAYS been my ultimate dream: the 428 Cobra Jet.

Sometimes, we just have to settle.
:cry:
