Steve McQueen gets his own museum exhibit

Quote:
McQueen's relationship to the Mustang was forged in "Bullitt," the 1968 crime thriller best remembered for a heroic 9-minute, 42-second chase scene in which McQueen and villains in a Dodge Charger take turns chasing each other through the streets of San Francisco.
The McQueen persona is appearing not only in television commercials, but in cultural attractions, too. An exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, "Steve McQueen: The Legend and the Cars," attempts to connect many of the vehicles from his screen performances with those that served his personal passion for speed. The show, which opened over the weekend, runs through Jan. 22.

I was a big fan of Steve McQueen...............loved his films and followed his racing. He deserves any accolades that he gets. Too bad the younger generations misesed him and many of the other great stars.........not like some of the "Stiffs" that try and pass as talent today.........I quess they are immortalized on film....at least we have that.

I know that I sound like an "Old Fart" here, but it's true...............
