BULLITT: The Great Chase Scene-OOT

Filed under Cars & Trucks, Movies, OOT, Open thread at November 3rd, 2012 - 10:20 pm

I was flipping through the channels the other night and saw that the old Steve McQueen hit movie Bullitt was on. I tuned in just as the bad guys in the black ’68 Charger goosed it, made a hard, tire-smoking left turn and the chase through the hills of San Francisco was on. The chase scene was a classic match-up between 2 classic muscle cars; a 1968 Charger equipped with a 375 hp 440 Magnum  and a 1968 Mustang Fastback GT fastback packing a Ford 325 hp 390 cu motor. Two of each car were used during the filming which took weeks and resulted in 9 minutes of film time. Classic car enthusiasts will be pleased to see many classic cars from the 50’s and 60’s in the background. I spotted ’57 and ’58 Cadillacs, a bathtub Porsche convertible and a variety of other venerable old land yachts. Pay close attention and you’ll see that the Charger loses 4 hubcaps while in town, and one more on the open road. However, in all of the closeup open road shots the Charger has all of its hubcaps.  Early in the chase you’ll see that they pass the same forest green VW Bug twice.

So, go to full screen, crank up your speakers and buckle up. It’s a wild ride and just the thing for a Saturday night OOT.

    Someone should do a thread on automobile personalities. When you look at cars in moves that have a certain identity appeal, they are all from the 60′s and 70′s. The latest honda civic is a just a project managers money dream and will never pick up a chick or catch a bank robber. Unless you are herbie of course, but that was a random roll of the dice by a forgiving god.

    I was born in ’52. As a child I was looking at all those cars from the late 40′s and early 50′s. They had very expressive faces. The Buicks had big teeth. The Packards and Nash’s had sour faces. The Pontiacs looked angry.

    I just got a new, used car that was in great shape, but a big gouge out of the top of the steering wheel. I bought a cover for it today at Sears, and it’s made of that material. I was trying to describe it in an e-mail.

    Did you ever put one those on? Holy Toledo!

    I had to open the door to use the ground for leverage, I’m occasionally hitting the horn in the parking lot, and my wife is asking me questions like “Are all steering wheels the same size?”

    Got a feel-good story to share!

    On my way back from Sears and Longhorn the Mrs. and I got stuck in traffic due to an accident.

    I pulled up slowly next to a pickup wearing Utah plates and anti-Obama stickers, rolled my window down, and commented to the girl in the passenger seat that I couldn’t wait for Election Day.

    She responded that her and her husband were flying 2000 miles to Utah just to vote, and then flying back because they couldn’t register here in time.

    Ah, just scrolled up from the bottom to see if anyone else made this observation. I guess it is that obvious (the VW). I caught something else too the other night that I had never noticed before but now can’t think of it for the life of me … should have made a note of it (upon all my other notes)
    Maybe after I sleep on it …

    I dunno, guys… VWs were pretty damned ubiquitous back then, and that dark green was extremely popular. Had one myself.

    http://www.subaru.com/build-your-own/xv-crosstrek.html

    Kind of a step down from that Mini Countryman S All4 I want, but then, it doesn’t have a turbo engine, the dealer is less than 5 miles away, and I’d save at least $ 7000. If only they’d drop the six-speed tranny in there and offer leather in a manual tranny vehicle… Well, The Mighty Geo still runs, so I guess there’s no hurry. But I would like to have at least one new car of my own before I kick the bucket. The wife is on her third, and even the daughters have had one each. Me, not so much…

    The final Susquehanna Polling & Research Poll shows a 47-47% tie heading into the Tuesday election. This is good news. Pennsylvania is within reach. It’ll depend on voter turnout, now. That gives us an edge. We have the enthusiasm and the momentum going into Tuesday. If Obama can’t hold Pennsylvania, he cannot win. I am so very hopeful going into this election, but I so want to get it done.

    I didn’t get to drive it, but I did sit in the very first one my local dealer received. My thought was “I could drive this!” Hate the God-damned red stiching in the seats, though. I’m sorry, but I never thought red and black was a great color combo. But if I could overlook the white dinner plate-sized speedo in a Mini, I could get over the red stitching…

    Feh. Two more days, then we get answers. Excepting the inevitable Democratic challenges to anything that is even remotely close, that is.

    Enough speculation and bullshitting… Let’s just throw the dice and see how they fall, eh? It’s the “Free Shit Army” v the “Free Army.” Let’s go..


  44. 45 | November 4, 2012 8:47 am

    @ theoutsider:

    Actually, it is the most accurate poll in Pennsylvania:

    If Romney wins Pennsylvania, the race is over. If the Obama campaign and the media ignore Susquehanna’s polling, they do so at their peril. Let’s take a quick look at the three most recent major statewide races in Pennsylvania, and how Susquehanna fared compared to their polling counterparts:

    2010 US Senate Race -- Susquehanna was the only pollster to nail Pat Toomey’s two-point margin of victory over Joe Sestak. The media-despised Rasmussen Reports was second closest (two points off), while Quinnipiac and Public Policy Polling (the “real” pollsters) were off by three points.

    2010 PA Governor’s Race -- Republican Tom Corbett won the race by eight points, 54-46. Susquehanna polled the race within one point, showing Corbett winning by seven points. Rasmussen, PPP, and Quinnipiac reported the same margin, resulting in a four-way tie in correctly predicting the race.

    2008 Presidential Contest -- For those shocked at seeing Obama trailing Mitt Romney by four points in the latest Pennsylvania poll, the same polling outfit had Obama defeating McCain by 8 points four years ago. Obama won by 10. Although their final poll was done two weeks before election day, they actually polled within two points of the final results, along with PPP, Quinnipiac, and Survey USA. The results were closer than other state polls done by Rasmussen, ARG, Marist, and Morning Call.

    In the last three statewide contests, Susquehanna had an average margin of error from the actual result of one point, making them Pennsylvania’s most accurate pollster.

    I’ll take those odds. Hell, man, the poll I linked to last week that only had Obama up by four in Pennsylvania had a D+13 bias. You don’t really expect Obama to do better this year than in 2008, do you? Obama had a D+7 in Pennsylvania in 2008, so if the D+13 poll is accurate and you correct their egreigious error on the sample, Romney would be winning. Obama won’t get D+7 in Pennsylvania this time around, so all things being equal, it looks like Obama is going to have to fight hard for Pennsylvania. And if he loses Pennsylvania, it is all over for him. HE has to hold Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio to win. That is a tall order for a President in a country where over 50% of the population thinks the country is on the wrong track.

  46. 47 | November 4, 2012 8:51 am

    On, and evven Minnesota is in play:

    We’ve been reporting for close to a week that Minnesota, the bluest of blue states, which has voted for the Democratic candidate in every election since 1976, is very much in play for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. Today, we got statistical confirmation that is the case via an American Future Fund poll. From the polling memo:

    1. The Presidential ballot in Minnesota is a dead heat.

    Mitt Romney has a one point lead on the ballot (46% Romney/45% Obama.). The demographics of the state clearly make Minnesota a battleground state.

    2. Mitt Romney leads Independents by double digits.

    As we are seeing across the country, Romney’s lead in the state is driven by Independent voters (49% Romney/36% Obama). Due to his consistent advantage with Independents, Romney leads or is tied with the President across the battleground states – even those that traditionally lean Democratic.

    The findings of this poll comport with the non-statistical campaign trends for the state.

    That independent lead is critical. If we get an R+0 or R+1 turnout (which Gallup is predicting), then Obama may be taost even in traditional Blue States. We have the momentum and we have the enthusiasm going into the critical phase of the election. The numbers simply aren’t there for Obama. If he were going to win, he’d have broken 50% nationally, and he hasn’t done that since the first debate.

    Oh, and there are only two more shopping days until the election. If you’re in one of the “Free Shit Army” urban areas, you might want to check those supplies in case they lose. They’ve spent the last few weeks promising riots should that happen. Couldn’t hurt to be prepared…

    Congratulations. Now resign over Benghazi. Why do you defend the man who cut those people off to die? But in any event, that looks unlikely to happen. Instead, I’ll be congratulating Romney on defeating the SCOAMF. That will be one of th ebest days of my life. The choice in this campaing is start: continued failure and ultimately collapse under Barack Obama or the possibility of a brighter future under Romney. It’ll be tough for Romney to pull us out, and Reid has already indicated that he’ll keep trying to drive America over the cliff. I think we’ve got the Presidency sewn up, but I am not sure how the Senate will fall. If Romney wins big we’ll get it, but I think if it is close the Democrats may hang on. That’ll be bad for the country, but not as bad as Obama being re-elected. Obama being re-elected would be as bad for the Union as McClellan winning the 1864 election would have been.

    I have a bit of despair over this election mainly because I was one of those cheerleaders last time that said “the only poll that matters is elections day”. Well the polls for the most part were accurate and McCain lost. Funny thing is I am not sure I would have been voting Libertarian by this point if he had won (or any number of weirder scenarios — but I digress).

    One thing that I have found a little comfort in is the inventive snark of comments on the online news sites. Like this one today in response to one of the “hope and changers” once again trying to change the subject:

    I don’t always double-down on utter stupidity.
    But when I do, I vote obama.

    Stay jobless, my friends.

    Ferb hangs out here to derail the conversation.
    I do not think Ferb cares who wins, he is probably doing the same thing at huffington post or kos.
    Ferb wants everyone else to be as miserable as he is.

    The outsider on the other hand wants Obama to win.
    Otherwise his motivations are the same as ferb’s.

    So apparently the crack election sleuth & race detective aka Chuckles Johansen has exclusively uncovered a video that shows Mitt Romney having an on air meltdown over his Mormon beliefs, specifically where women’s rights & abortion are concerned.

    Only problem is it’s from 2007 & lots of folks already know about it.

    @ eaglesoars:

    Another Bloomberg/Obama screwup:

    Free gas fiasco fuels frustration, chaos in N.Y.

    Free gas came with gallons of chaos.

    Thousands of fuel-starved New Yorkers were able to get much-needed gasoline from the government at no cost yesterday, but not without a high-octane fit of confusion and double talk from state and federal authorities.

    The trouble-plagued giveaway began when Gov. Cuomo’s office announced in the morning that officials would try to ease the post-Sandy gas crisis by giving out free fuel to both “emergency vehicles and the general public.”

    The gas was to be dispensed from trucks at five locations around the area — and throngs of desperate drivers showed up to fill their tanks.

    But by the afternoon Cuomo spokesman Matt Wing rolled back the offer of free gas, announcing that fuel was intended for emergency vehicles first and foremost.

    The change came after the U.S. Department of Defense — which provided the gas in coordination with the National Guard — said the gas was only for first responders.

    A Cuomo administration source blamed the mixup on the military.

    I’m betting the problem isn’t so much as supply but can be attributed to over-regulation & non-union truck drivers shipping it in, probably with potable water & food too.

    He basically gave them a choice, either they let him do it or he was taking his load back to Richmond.

    According to FEMA:

    The entire federal family continues to lean forward to support the states, tribes and communities in their ongoing response efforts as they work to save lives. We also continue to work with the entire emergency management team, including with our state, tribal and local partners, the voluntary and faith-based community, the private sector, and we continue to encourage the public to be safe and listen to the direction of their state, tribal and local officials.

    But then there’s reality:

    FEMA’s vaunted “lean forward” strategy that called for advanced staging of supplies for emergency distribution failed to live up to its billing in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

    In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water — or any other supplies, for that matter — stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.

    FEMA only began to solicit bids for vendors to provide bottled water for distribution to Hurricane Sandy victims on Friday, sending out a solicitation request for 2.3 million gallons of bottled water at the FedBizOpps.gov website. Bidding closed at 4:30 pm eastern.

    They might be able to fool the public on something like Benghazi, but people know what’s happening on the ground in Long Island.

    I guess it really is hard to stage supplies in advance of something like a hurricane. I mean, it’s not like it spent several days moving north at 15 mph, or there were computer models showing where it was going to hit, or anything.

    But most importantly was it packaged in a union plant, using union labor & then delivered by a union trucker?

    The first catastrophe that I went to during my brief stint as a storm adjuster was Hurricane Andrew. It was shocking to see the devastation. Equally shocking was the sight of 20,000 Americans lined up for a jug of water, a few cans of beans and some toilet paper. I absolutely will not live in an urban environment.

    1979 U.S. hostage crisis in Iran

    Today is the 33rd anniversary of the beginning of the U.S. hostage crisis in Iran. On Nov. 4, 1979, more than 60 U.S. Embassy staffers were taken prisoner, though only 52 remained for the full 444 days. The blockbuster movie “Argo” is about the escape of six Americans, at least one with Michigan ties, who narrowly escaped becoming hostages and successfully fled the country.

    A slightly different perspective on today:

    Iranians mark ‘Day of Fighting the Global Arrogance’

    Thousands of Iranians protested outside of the former US embassy in Tehran on Friday, marking the country’s annual “Day of Fighting the Global Arrogance,” The New York Times reported.

    The yearly celebration coincides with the anniversary of the November 4, 1979 Iranian hostage crisis, in which 52 American diplomats were held captive in the US embassy for 444 days, causing the breakdown in diplomatic relations between Washington and Tehran that continues 33 years later.

    The Times reported that youth gathered outside the former US mission held up models of missiles, labelled “Made in Iran,” while a senior Iranian security official warned against compromising with the “great Satan.”

    AFP reported that demonstrators also chanted anti-Israeli slogans and burnt Israeli flags.

    “Today we commemorate the conquering of the castle of Satan!” the Times quoted Mohammad Reza Naghdi, the commander of an Iranian paramilitary group, as telling the crowd.
