Default Bullit can't drive!

While searching on a completely different toppic I found this picture. All I can say is what the hell is going on with that right front tire?

I haven't seen the movie, but it looks like the control arm is gonna break. Note the lack of counter steer. He looks like he's headed off the road too....scary.

Has anyone seen the movie? I really wanna know what happened to the car. Looks like it's either gonna flip over or go strait into the dirt. I've always wanted to see the movie but whenever speed plays it I come in at the end.

McQueen broke a bunch of **** in that chase scene. Some of it he repaired himself. And he did his own driving.

Get the DVD. It's an awesome chase scene.
