I love my SSR, but I have to confess I have owned 3 Mustangs in my life.

I saw this story on This Morning on CBS today.

Everyone remembers seeing this movie and that race scene.

(Hope the link works)

I just read a story about that mustang several weeks ago. It was on the internet. Evidently that car had an exact twin and it disappeared. Somehow they found it in Mexico. Pretty interesting story. Don't know anything else about it.

Here is the story:

Watch the current episode of Jay Leno's Garage. They feature the original Mustang. It was bought by a guy in NJ for $6,000 and used a family car before it was parked for many years. The guy's son brought it out because Ford was doing the 2018 Bullitt. It is in it's original unrestored & rusted condition. Jay gets to drive it on the Ford track.

I saw that episode, too... the out take info was interesting, also. Glad to hear the Son is going to bring it out and show it and not just hide it away. I connected with the movie as I had a '68 Coronet myself. Most Epic car chase even with the Ricers coming on the movie screen. Nothing Beats Detroit Muscle !!!

But McQueen never made an offer, in both letters he said he'd like to buy it if the price wasn't too high. He knew the value and if he really wanted it he'd have made an offer at least.

He probably thought being whom he was, that they would give it to him. Glad they kept it, since it is clearly so dear to them.
