Just think some rich kid is driving around in the holy grail of the Mustang world... Doing burn outs in his high school parking lot, putting neon lights on the chassis, and getting laid on the back seat......

Oh the humanity of it all

Nothing wrong with that last part, but everything else I object to!

I've read this before, and all I can say is the owners of that car are, well... strange. Sad thing.

What an eccentric guy. He has no interest in the car as a rare collectors item, either as a car collector, a movie buff, a Steve McQueen fan or anything else. I would guess this car would bring at least $500,000 at auction, so he clearly does not need the money (of course that may change after the last few weeks, and the owner may be hurting for a few bucks) but I cannot fathom why he would just let the car rot away in a barn, other than to annoy the people who were trying to buy the car from him.

I dont think he is a car guy at all. He would have not let it rot in a barn if he was. I think its the I have it you dont thing he likes. That car is a peace of history and should be on display. But when it comes down to it, the car is his we cannot help it fell in the hands of a selfish person.

Bad to say but probably after he passes away some day, his offspring he wills it to, will probably sell it and hopefully to the right person/people.

I'm sure the kid will sell it once the old man croaks. It is purely a control thing- the guy knows how badly the rest of the world wants to see the car and he gets pleasure from denying everyone the opportunity. He certainly could have made millions from restoring it and showing it.

I've got an idea. Everyone from IMBOC hops in their Bullitts, converges on the site of the original movie car, B-Man hops up on a soapbox with a bullhorn and DEMANDS the immediate release of the car! We start a chant. "GIVE US THE BULLITT CAR! GIVE US THE BULLITT CAR!" The news crews would come, people would talk, we'd force their hand! Hey, these people slapped our dead hero right in the face and refused to even let him NEAR the thing! These "strange ones" need a wake-up call!

I thought it was Kentucky somewhere...
There was a rumor on the Mcqueen online forum about somebody in a foreign country (Australia I think)that had THE B car. False rumor.
The VIN is pretty widely known, so if it shows up someplace I would hope someone would get a "fer sure" I.D. :doubt:

In Tennessee

"When I reached him, Joe was not happy to entertain questions about his car, which he had relocated twice in the 10 years since our first talk. It had been stored in his father’s garage in 1990, then was moved to a horse farm where it spent a few years in a barn. While there, a worker on the property told a Mustang enthusiast about a hidden green fastback that had a history. From the description, the Mustanger suspected it was the Bullitt car and snuck onto the grounds to take some pictures without permission. Joe told me he had dealt with the employee who allowed this to happen, then moved the car to the garage in his Tennessee home, where it was sitting next to his Porsche as we talked. He thanked me for keeping his identity a secret but once more declined to consider any offers to show the car."
