Steve McQueen on a sunny day end of May in 1968:
"I wanted to see the inside. I saw more than I counted on. I got my head twisted. I was raised in the streets and I never liked cops much.
But here I am right in the middle of real police business. Man, it's different from the inside....Christ! I am playing a real cop and I can imagine going up against that!"
Steve found a new friend in Frank Panacci Sr., a real policeman from SFO.
Exclusive pics, letters and stuff archived by the son of a BULLITT film crew supporting SFO police member - Frank Panacci jr.

A really unique RARE FIND in France|
This is definitely one of one!!!!! Why?
A unique 67 GTA lost and found by our reporter Eric
|Liberté, Fraternitè, Egalitè =
Solution: O.k., a good dose of humour that you need here. Somebody put a french heartbeat in your american icon and it worked. Tolerance either way makes things work indeed. Don't flame the guy who did this, wait for your fuel prices to raise to the level we have here in Europe. We've seen it all - Mercedes, VW Diesel, tractor engines in a Mustang .. you name it. What do you have in your Mustang. Let's here about weird projects.
Pictures above thanks to Eric from France.

Boss 302 found in Iran
0F02G16.... indicates the proper VIN for a BOSS 302 and it will be soon registered with the BOSS registry.
Our iranian reporter says:
"This Boss 302 popped up at an auction. As you can see, the car has the shaker. Other options are fold down rear seat and a tachometer. The engine is intact. The paint is red, and it looks orange because it was lying abandoned outside and has turned orange from being under the sun for so long."
The Boss turned out as a real BOSS 302, VIN confirmed by Kevin Marti's report.
The car was originally build in March 70 and sold to Wilson Ford Sales in Huntington Beach/CA.
Evaporative Emissions, a four-speed trans, Traction-Lok Differntial, F60x15 Belted Tires w/raised white letters, shaker hood scoop and sport deck rear set, AM/FM stereo and tinted glass plus a tach. More on the history of the car soon here.

Rare Find of the Year in Germany
This 67 G.T.500 #783 was 30 years burried in a garage under piles and unearthed just recently. Being one of a few 67 export Shelbys it's a rare find indeed. Originally white, it will hopefully be turned back to its original glory in a ground-up restoration.
The owner is willing to part with it for a reasonable sum to finance his other resto projects. There are already several interested parties bidding on this one already and yes, SAAC has confirmed the Ford VIN to be true.
Update 2008: The car will return to Luxembourg after it has been in the US for a thorough restoration.
