have the life.
Host Mike Musto has been bombing around Dubai, giving us U.S. viewers a glimpse inside the car culture that permeates the Middle East.
The location may be thousands of miles away, the landscape may be foreign, and the culture may be unfamiliar, but one thing stands abundantly true: Automotive enthusiasm is as vibrant there as it is here.
And nowhere can that be seen more clearly than in this video.
In the sort of delightful parallel-universe synchronicity that only car culture can create, Musto comes across a Dubai '68 Mustang that's been given the full Bullitt tribute treatment: Highland Green paint, charcoal Torq-Thrusts, and a wide-mouth grille devoid of badging.
Truth be told, there are times in this video when, aside from the license plate, you'd swear this was filmed in the American Southwest. Deserts all look roughly the same, and the sight of a sandy, desolate ribbon of pavement harmonizes with the heartstrings of every red-blooded American gearhead.
But you're not likely to come across a herd of camel in the American desert. In Dubai, Musto happened on just such a scene while driving this Bullitt.
Check out the video, and appreciate just how universal, how transcendent, car enthusiasm can be.
