It's crazy, and true! The new mayor wanted the city to be attractive to the movie guys, so he gave them free reign of the city. They closed streets down when needed for the specific scenes. Really a neat thing.

I think I need to make a video of the prelude to the chase scene to advertise MCACN for Bob. Same music... same lead up, me driving the car around.....then right as the Charger rocks it, show the MCACN logo!

Cheers
Dave

Dave,

Now that the Mustang is near complete....what is next? New House, Another car project? A long needed Vacation? A lunch at ORD?

Dan

Hmmm... after the Bullitt? Lunch in Chicago? Welp,* several things on the deck. Yep, house/ shop/ stables will be starting in the next month or so, and since I only have the small rental shop right now, no car builds until next year. Oh... they'll be tinkering and such on the Mighty D150 Ram, and I need to fabricate a custom entry gate to the new Ranch with a set of wings in the gate, but no major build project until next year. But fear not! My plan on a follow up to the Beater Bee is just about coming to fruition! Yes... it'll even be right in line Alphabetically with the Beater Bee. As with all my builds, you'll learn stuff you never knew you didn't know or needed to know, or even really cared to know. I figure the next one will be more edjumacational too. Like a "This Old Friggin' Car!" instructional show where I explain helpful tips and techniques on how to lose your favorite tool, pay way too much for a part....twice since you forgot you bought that part a few months ago....and explain how to recognize that bad idea you thought was a good idea until you tried it, before you actually try it!

And soon as I get into ORD on a nice layover you're on speed-dial!

Cheers
Dave

I think the only thing that trumps the circumference of the 390 chrome air cleaner lid is the Chrome Dome from the mid 60s Hemis! Soooooooo much chrooooome!

I was fortunate that the car had the original jack and hardware hidden in the trunk. Trying to stay 100% correct, the F70 WSW Firestone mounted up on a stock 14x6 styled steel wheel trims the trunk out nicely. My car has the Reflective Group which is a reflective "C" stripe on the side of the car and the center part of the wheels painted in a reflective coating. Like a stop sign has. The spare, however, is not painted with the coating. My original spare didn't have that in it. Just Argent paint. Tomorrow the glass goes in!

Cheers
Dave
