Yes, Chris and his two colleagues shared the cost of hiring a Mustang for the day and then drove into San Francisco! (Yep, the San Francisco well known for it's large Gay Community hence the reaction to the term 'Man Fun'). Although I shook my head in despair when told about it, I do think it's very cool to be able to say that you have driven a Mustang down the very roads that inspired one of the most famous car chases in a movie ever!!
For those of you that don't know, Bullitt is a very famous film set in San Francisco which starred Steve McQueen, Jacqueline Bisset and Robert Vaughn. It was the first movie to have a car chase in it which lasted 11 minutes........Steve McQueen, playing Lt. Frank Bullitt, driving a Ford Mustang through the streets of San Francisco trying to avoid hit men.....still one of the best car chases I've ever seen!!
Unfortunately Chris has the photo's on his computer but I will upload one of him standing next to the Mustang grinning like a haddy when he gets home tonight! So, he spent two weeks in California....there are about three photo's of the golden bridge, none of where he was staying, none of Carmel (where Clint Eastwood lives), none of the pub they drank in that is owned by Clint Eastwood and about a zillion of the car!! (including one of the engine....I think I am perfectly entitled to despair!!)
------------------------------------------Ps. Sorry for the lack of blogging and visiting!! My new semester has started and the work load is hideous....two assessments a week for one class and don't even get me started on the amount of reading I have to do!! I will try and get round you all but I'm not promising anything!!
(Actually, I am really missing catching up with you all....no...it's not just cause I'm nosey.....Ok, maybe a wee bit!!)
