Peter Yates - RIP

12 01 11 - 23:23

Peter Yates is the guy that EVERY true, blue-blooded, gearhead owes a debt of thanks to. We owe Mr Yates a tip of our grease stained ballcaps, because he's the genius that directed one of the world's best chase scenes. IMHO, the chase scene from Bullitt was his masterpiece. It's with deepest regrets that I have to tell that he passed away today.

The chase scene in Bullit is still the gold-standard of car-chase scenes, despite the number of times McQueen passed that ugly green VW, no matter how many hubcaps fly off the Charger nor how many times the Mustang double clutches. It still kicks ass!!!

Here's a link: Bullitt

Many thanks Mr Yates.

The only problem is that Apple is offering transit directions in just six metro areas in the United States. At least for now, if you donít live in one of those six areas, youíre stuck using separate transit apps.
