    You can use a car and take much better care of it than this. That car was neglected.

    Totally agree, I love well used older cars. I guess that's why shows like Roadkill appeal to me so much.

    Good thing Mythbusters didn't get a hold of it, they would of destroyed it like the multiple Corvettes and classic Mustangs they have ruined in the name of science.

    For years a 3rd grade teacher was driving the Bullitt car as her daily commuter? What?!

    There's a certain charm about this car going from a film star to a completely anonymous life as a school teacher's car.

    I can say the Mustang have been in safe hands for all these years compared to the mess that another famous missing car, the original Shelby Daytona, went through.
