Its wasn't only McQueen's gritty,determined chase but the deep throated sounds of the Mustang and Charger engines that pulled you into the race almost as a vicarious driver.This was the dawn of Muscle Cars and Bullit created a ferocious appetite for fast cars.Probably the epitome of Muscle Car Idolatry was in Steven King's "Christine" where an obsessed car fanatic obtains a real supernatural vehicle but one that wants more than your blood,sweat and toil,it wants your soul! Muscle Car fans had painted symbolic flames on their vehicles for decades but Christine brought that fantasy to life and showed what a consuming,fiery beast was all about!
