Bullitt was released late in 1968 and was going strong in April 1969 when I turned 16 and got my drivers license. I had bought a run down MG midget with the doors wired on and no starter but my older brother rewarded me by lending me his 65 Ivy Green Mustang (Bullitt car was a very similar Highland Green) to take my GF to a high school dance. He asked that I not smoke the tires much. I was pretty happy with that one.
Coincidentally, I went to school with Dan Akroyd who later starred in the Blues Brothers and jammed with him a few times in a blues band (he played drums).
