The 68 Charger was a badass car, and so was the 68 Mustang

At the end of the big chase scene-
when the Charger runs into the gas station and explodes-
watch it again, and you can see the Charger go on by behind the station before the explosion occurs.
It's also funny to see how many times they run by the same cars on teh various streets during the chase; I recall them passing a particular VW bug many times.
Still one of the epic car chase scenes. As you can tell, I've watched it too many times.

An amazing car chase scene, truly a ground breaker. Moviemakers prior to that would simply speed up the film when editing car chase sequences giving them a hokey "Gilligan's Island" look.
Bullitt was filmed at actual speeds, sometimes in excess of 100mph.
And Sccutler is correct. They towed that Charger up to the proper speed and released it, but it missed the gas station. However, that small point fails to ruin such an awesome sequence.
Patrick Bateman is my hero.

The airport chase is the best. How about when Steve McQueen dives under the 707 during the takeoff roll, wow.
You're only as good as your last departure.
