Default Bullitt & Vanishing Point

I don't remember posting this here before, so here we go. Myself & a good friend were thinking & talking about old car movies that we have watched back in the day. Two that came to mind are Bullitt, Steve McQueen, & Vanishing Point, Barry Newman.
I have been looking all over to see if there are any sites that we can dial into & watch these great movies again. Thanks guys.

OT.

I think both are available on DVD....maybe google it. I have Bullit on DVD...

Both shows were great, but Bullit was the best !!

I know that segments of Bullitt can be watched on Youtube, but I'm not sure about the whole movie. As for Vanishing Point, I'm not sure. I have both on DVD. I know that Bullitt was available at some stores a few years ago (Wal Mart, HMV, Zeller's). There are several places here in Ontario that deal in old movies. One place is called The Silver Screen in Niagara-On-The-Lake Ont, and the other is called The Sugar Shack in Kirkfield Ont. Hope you can find them. They are great movies.

The YOUTUBE segments have been pulled by the movie people. Copyright infringement

I sell Vanishing Point on DVD at shows and a number of customers have told me about a remake. I have been trying to find it. Whenever I see a copy on ebay they want $40+ Has anyone seen it, is it good?

I have a couple of friends that live just accross the line. I could probably get them to pick it up. I watched Bullitt on Netflix a couple of weeks ago. There are clips of VP on YouTube, I watched them last night. Is Thunder Road like these movies. I will look on Netflix for it.

Thanks from OT.

It was a "made for tv" remake. I have a copy but have never watched it, heard that its a little different.
