Thing is, though we haven’t actually spotted a Bullitt recreation ‘Stang since we arrived yesterday: we’ve seen a ton of Mustangs- and this brown, vinyl roofed confection is the closest thing to the original we’ve come across on our bike wanders around the city.

It’s the kind of city that resonates with a million images and ideas. And we’ve captured a few pics that we thought you might enjoy. Go to Street Spots for more.
