McQueen’s image stared down at Thai-Tang and his team from a poster in the design studio. “That scowl on his face was actually the inspiration for how we executed the headlamps. We pushed them back underneath the hood and the brow of the car, to give it a very menacing look,” says Thai-Tang.
Interesting. Not a huge fan of the S197 Mustangs, so never read much about them. Reason I asked is because I am the co-founder of the local Mustang club here in Burlington and a member of the International Mustang Bullitt Owners Club. Actually sold my Bullitt to allow me to get into the JKU.

In the new TV show Alcatraz, the cop chick was shown driving a Bullitt Mustang in tonights episode. Nice tip of the cap.

Haven't watched this weeks episode. But the same car could be seen in the alley way during the second episode last week. Pretty awesome, especially since they are in San Fransisco, where Bullitt was filmed.

Smile Flat Black or Textured Black?

It looks like a flat black? Love the look. Thinking of doing this to my black JK. Can't decided between Flat black, textured black, or glossy black. Thoughts anyone?

No intention of thread jacking, but - ^ this. I just sold my 2001 Bullitt to get into my JKR (still in transit).

If I can ever figure out how to order from their website.... kidding.
Love the grill - just not sure of the color... still think I like body-color matching grills better.
But, that said, the wild boar does rock!
