Pine Valley Raceway is open and we will be coordinating with them for a confirmed date. We are “shooting” for April 5th!
Our friend and Bullitthead John’s 1967 Bullitt movie replica is featured in Hotchkis Sport Suspension’s booth at SEMA recreating the Bullitt movie chase scene. Hotchkis outfitted John’s car with a 21st century suspension for his car and it looks amazing! Hot Rod Magazine’s blog has a short article on it here: http://blogs.hotrod.com/the-bullitt-chase-scene-at-sema-2013-91003.html

Pocket rocket indeed!!
The plot thickens. The Ford Authority blog is reporting that Ford has applied to trademark the “mach 1″ name. What does that mean? Expect a new mach 1 on the 550 platform possibly in 2015.
The FIA World Record for standing 10K (202.438 mph) and 10-mile (210.018) runs were also set, pending homologation by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile
Amazing that the same block and heads in the production engine were used for this car. Congrats to Colin Braun, Ford, and Michael Shank Racing!
The Paul’s Fine Art Painting crew is hard at work over at MRT sprucing up the place! Congrats to MRT on their new paint scheme! More photos to come when the job is complete!
As most Bullitt owners know Scott Hoag, owner of MRT, is a constant supporter of the Bullitt Nationals and other Hoondog events. We look forward to their continued support. Thank you Scott.
