Monday book mania skipped one week but comes back wit a book all about an ICON Mr. Steve McQueen. He made movies best remembered for their wild car chases, mad motorcycle dashes, and hair-raising races, but no one forgets the man at the wheel--Steve McQueen, the King of Cool. No other Hollywood star has been so closely linked with cars and bikes. It is this connection that McQueens Machines explores, giving readers a close-up look at the cars and motorcycles McQueen drove in movies, those he owned, and others he raced. From the 1968 Ford Mustang GT Fastback he drove in Bullitt (in the greatest car chase of all time) to his Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow in The Thomas Crown Affair, from the Triumph motorcycle of The Great Escape to the Gulf-Porsche 917K he actually raced in Le Mans, the cars and bikes that McQueen made famous in films make another appearance here. The book also features the cars, motorcycles, and even airplanes that McQueen owned over the years.
