My brother sent me that earlier in the day. There is no better endorsement than "The King of Cool."

I think that if all we saw was the rear light, everyone here would have recognized it was a Land Rover. Scary...but true.

I wonder where that series truck is now, and if he actually owned it. His vehicles and personal items bring huge money at auction.

Steve McQueen is/was the shizzle. Too bad he left us so early.

The 2 photos prior to that one were on a camping trip.

The Outdoorsman
"He liked camping, he liked rugged things, he liked firing a gun," says Dominis, who captured this photo of McQueen during a trip the star took with his buddies in the Sierra Madre Mountains.

Camp McQueen
The actor smiles in his sleeping bag. "This is it, man," he told LIFE. "I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth."

Best thing about him was that he painted all his cars brown. Ferraris, minis, etc. He liked them not to stand out.

In the summer of '65 I worked with a guy (total dweeb) who used to see McQueen in Greenwich Village before he was famous. He said he had an MG-TD (I wonder if it was brown way back then), and he always jumped in without opening the door.

The best Steve McQueen song is by the Drive-By Truckers:

Steve McQueen Steve McQueen
When I was a little boy I wanted to grow up to be
Steve McQueen Steve McQueen
The coolest doggone motherscratcher on the silver screen

I'd drive real fast everywhere no one would ever catch me
and I'd kick your ass if you pissed me off so be careful what you ask me
and I'd never have an empty bottle or an empty bed
and as cool as Paul Newman is I bet Steve could whup his head

Steve McQueen............................

Bullet was my favorite movie that I'd ever seen
I totaled my go-cart trying to imitate that chase scene
That Duster had six hubcaps, know what I mean
and I love the way they all flew off when it landed in that ravine

Steve McQueen............................

I really loved The Getaway back when I was eight
that pussy Alec Baldwin sucked in the remake
and speaking of pussy, I guess Steve got it all
He fucked Faye Dunaway and he fucked Ali McGraw

Steve McQueen Steve McQueen
When I was a little boy I wanted to grow up to be
Steve McQueen Steve McQueen
The coolest goddamn mothefucker on the silver screen
(yee-haw)

(suddenly the scene turns slow and somber, as a campfire harp plays in the background)
I went to see The Hunter on my first date
The Hunter was the last movie Steve McQueen lived to make
They took my drivers license when I was just sixteen
the year Mesothelioma killed Steve McQueen
