    You can't get much cooler than tunneling out of a German prison camp to commandeer a Triumph.

    Since most Steve McQueen fans are probably fans of The Great Escape too, here's an interesting link to info/trivia about how that movie was made.

    Someone told me they counted hubcaps flying off the Charger in Bullitt - as in too many. Great flick, but I never remember to check for myself.

    Anyone?

    Bueller?

    Would have liked one of these in the garage with Bullitt08, but didn't have enough coin.

    Steve McQueen is one of my favorite actors to watch.
    My favorite movies with him are Tom Horn , The Hunter and The Great Escape.

    Tom Horn was a great movie, but damn if that ending wasn't hard to take. The Hunter is another classic that seems to get overlooked

    There is also some great footage of McQueen riding dirt bikes in On Any Sunday


    They just don't make movie stars like that anymore. McQueen, Lee Marvin, Warren Oates, real guys and not these pretty boy manginas that are stars today.
