1001 Steve McQueen Facts The Rides, Roles and Realities of the King of Cool

  • Barcode: 9781613254738
Steve McQueen touched the world through his largerthan- life onscreen persona, portraying characters who were flawed and realistic. He played his roles to perfection due to his own imperfections and the bitter realism of his early life. As he once said, he had seemingly lived an entire lifetime before his 18th birthday, all of which shines through in his signature blue-eyed icy stares. His legacy on film was cemented with Bullitt and Le Mans–the first made him an international superstar while the latter nearly bankrupted and killed him. Today, they’re among his most popular films. He held nothing back on screen or in life, and today he is remembered and revered not only for his acting but for his racing prowess and the world-class automobile and motorcycle collection he amassed in a relatively short amount of time. Vehicles once owned, driven, or raced by “The King of Cool” habitually sell for double or triple what their provenance- lacking counterparts do. Ask any 25-year-old car or motorcycle nut born more than a decade after his death who Steve McQueen is, and they’ll immediately recognize the collector and racer but make no mention of the actor. Author Tyler Greenblatt has waded through the plethora of information available to compile 1,001 of the most interesting Steve McQueen facts in this cumulative volume that is sure to keep fans of the actor, racer, and collector enthralled for hours. • Steve McQueen is the most iconic Hollywood star associated with the automobile • This book will feature facts of Steve McQueen’s life. Covered will be his iconic movie roles, automobiles, and off-camera life • With 1,001 different facts on Steve McQueen’s career, there will be something for everyone in this book About the Author Tyler Greenblatt has been passionate about cars and motorcycles since day one. His parents hooked him on internal combustion when they had a jump seat installed in the back of their 1966 Sting Ray coupe so that a baby seat could be secured. During his time at American Iron, he wrote American Iron Magazine Presents 1,001 Harley- Davidson Facts, which was published by CarTech Books in 2017. He followed that up in 2018 with The Corvette Hunter: Kevin Mackay’s Greatest Corvette Finds, which was a joint effort with longtime friend and world-class Corvette restorer Kevin Mackay. His latest CarTech project, 1,001 Steve McQueen Facts is his biggest undertaking yet, combining his love of both cars and motorcycles, and his fascination with The King of Cool himself.
