Ford's Bullitt Mustang: Return of a Legend
Pardon us if we take a minute to brag.
There was this smashing yellow Mustang GT gracing the glossy covers of
our magazine with a knockout profile in the centerfold some months ago.
We told about the heritage of this legendary Ford pony car, how it first
went nose to nosewith GM's snarly Camaro and -- according to true blooded
Mustang aficionados - came out the unsurpassed winner.
And, after decades of silence beyond the Mustang
clubs, we resurrected the legendary grit of Steve McQueen and his "Bullitt"
Mustang that knocked the socks off of every wild movie car chase scene
that preceded it and became a high water mark for motor buffmadness everywhere.We
did that cover story. And boy, were we proud.
So a few months later, here comes Ford Motor
Co., digging into its history to bring out --you guessed it -- a revival
of that legendary Bullitt Mustang (complete with Bullitt badging and bright
red performance brake calipers bearing a tiny engraved Mustang emblem).

Could that all be a mere coincidence? Looking back at the inaugural issue
of eMOTION! Magazine, we'll just enjoy the proximity, thank you. And we'll
pass along our opinion of this tantalizing new revival that Ford simply
can't manage to keep in its showrooms at the same time that GM is saying
last rites for the woefully neglected Firebird/Camaro. (Bob Lutz, are
you listening? Apparently someone at Ford said "why not.")
