Curbside Classic Outtake: Parisian Bullitt

It’s not like I traveled to Paris to look for old American cars. Although there certainly aren’t exactly a lot of vintage French cars on the streets. But the French have always loved American culture, and one of the icons of that is the Mustang. Since they have excellent taste, which particular Mustang might one expect to encounter in traffic? The best one ever.

    You say the French have always loved American culture? I thought the only things about America they like are Marlboro cigarettes and Jerry Lewis.

    It's a different plate number, and the gas cap is blacked-out (correct to movie), but here's another '68 Bullit Mustang roaming the streets of Paris.

    Nice. I saw a Buick Grand National parked in Venice. It was some sort of cultural show (we didn't find out). I even shot a picture.

    I know it's been two years, but if someone is interested... I saw this Mustang a few years ago, and from what I heard from it, it sounded more like a 289 than anything else. 92 is the code for Haut de Seine which is one of the département next to Paris, so very very close. By the way, by 2012 onwards motorised vehicules are gonna use a new system which is more like AB 123 CD and the département code will be written in a small blue rectangle on the right. I have a Mustang here in Puerto Rico, where I live (95 GTS), and as it was said before, having a street legal Mustang in France is freakin' expensive and I'll never consider importing one in France. For example, if you can afford a brand new 5.0 Mustang in the US, you'd better stick to a SN95 V6 in France if you consider the maintenance and the gas costs. PS: We love American cars, we don't want them to be Ford Fusion like, we want rumbling V8.
