Happy Birthday to one cool cat, Steve McQueen.
Whether it’s bringing back desperados dead or alive, battling an interplanetary menace, jumping a fence in a Triumph motorcycle or roaring over the hills of San Francisco in a Mustang GT, Steve McQueen brought a rush of pure adrenaline cut with sangfroid and sardonic humor.
So rev your engines or pour one out for Steve McQueen–and maybe give a thought or two to the late stunt driver Bud Ekins, who helped make Steve McQueen’s movies action-packed.
And remember, be safety-minded!
