Tunes on Tuesday ~ Bullitt

San Francisco is 50 square miles surrounded by reality

From the Steve McQueen movie, the best car chase scene ever, perhaps.  I learned the streets of San Francisco from this film, such that I can walk all around the city without a map.  Not bad for an ordinary Englishman.

Certainly a great advertisement for visiting San Francisco.

Steve McQueen did a lot of his own driving in the movie.

At lest one 1968 Highland Green Mustang GT 390 Fastback still exists as does at least one Dodge Charger, (how many of each were originally built, ( 2 or 3), and how many still exist is shrouded in mystery).

classic movie, classic car

 

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Vanishing Point

high speed means freedom of the soul

The movie Vanishing Point is as far away from a ‘chick flick’ as it’s possible to get ~ the whole thing is just one long car chase with minimal dialogue and a lot of engine noise.  What’s not to like?

A 1970 Dodge Challenger is a very cool car indeed.

I’ve driven newer Challengers, and I’ve driven on those roads, but these days Dodge Muscle Cars are emasculated shadows of greater, faster, classics.

I’ve owned, rented, or just driven examples of all of the above.

Fun, Fun, Fun…..

if masculinity is driving, then sexuality is the girl riding shotgun

~

she looks damn fine

a curve over the hips

a smile on her lips

that taste so divine

she’s something else

she has the hot looks

and the tender touch

she’s something special

and I’ve got the car

A Mustang, the desert, and a girl,

what’s not to like?

Desert Journey

the immense desert, empty and inspired with spiritual promises

~

Like many Englishmen, from that green and pleasant land, I have a strong personal affinity for the desert.  I like the high plains and the heat of Red Rock Country in the late summer.  There is a simplicity about the desert, you are either right or you’re in deep trouble, and there’s little ground in-between.

And now, when England cowers cold beneath our autumn mists and morning frost, I yearn to be back in the blazing sunshine and heat of California, New Mexico, Arizona, or Nevada.  Preferably on a long spontaneous road trip, driving a Mustang convertible with a cool lady riding shotgun.

Sweetheart, yes it’s true, I’m so happy to be stuck with you

deep in red rock country

in that desert we pray to God

but we trust in ourselves as men

in Arizona they salt margaritas, not sidewalks and roads
