Steve McQueen in Bullitt
Haulin' on The Streets of San Francisco
This is a fascinating photo of Steve McQueen hauling-ass through the San Francisco Marina in his Ford 1968 Mustang fastback from the movie Bullitt. He is on Marina Boulevard heading North toward the Golden Gate Bridge, and he just passed Fort Mason and Safeway.
I tried to find the exact vantage point, from the photo above. It is interesting to note that the Bank of America building (pictured on far right) was being erected in 1967-1968 and you can see its skeleton in the photo above, and see it as it is today in the picture below.

...Vintage Mercedes Coolness...
Frank Lloyd Wright
Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing
Frank Lloyd Wright is considered by many to be the greatest architect of the 20th Century, and he is pictured below standing in front of one the homes he designed, and he has is standing in front of his Rolls Royce and Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing.
The Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing is considered to be one of the most classic, iconic and collectable cars ever made. Frank Lloyd Wright also designed the Manhattan Mercedes Benz dealership located at 430 Park Avenue in New York City in the 1950s for Max Hoffman, who was a car importer.
Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous piece of residential architecture was likely "Falling Water" which is a residential home built on top of a natural waterfall, which is pictured below.
Frank Lloyd Wright Car Design
Frank Lloyd Wright was a design fanatic, and many people don't realize that at one point he attempted to redesign the automobile, as see below in this article that ran in the May 24th, 1959 issue of "This Weeks Magazine". This Weeks Magazine was a Supplement that was included in many Sunday newspapers in America.
