Rent a Classic Car

This isn’t your regular 1960’s gritty cop movie. Steve McQueen plays Lieutenant Frank Bullitt, a detective who drives a beautiful Mustang Fastback. Bullitt is occasionally ponderous at times, and true-to-life throughout. Watch this movie for the ten-minute car chase between McQueen’s ‘68 Mustang and a gleaming Dodge Charger as they jump down the slopes in downtown San Francisco and race down twisty highways.
