Finding Challenger IV - By Rory Ward 4 years earlier I had seen this image of Challenger IV, sitting in a loft, looked to be untouched for YEARS.  I couldn’t believe the car was still in existence, figuring it had either been bought and morphed into something else or destroyed in a race, I really didn’t […]

Steve McQueen And His Meyers Manx Dune Buggy From The Thomas Crown Affair Movie

Let’s just admit it. Steve McQueen is a guys guy. There is very few men in his caliber of coolness. He had the beautiful women. Hell, I am not to proud to admit that he was a damn good looking guy. He could race anything with two or four wheels. He had it all! Check out the video below of McQueen and Faye Dunaway blasting through the sand dunes in the movie “The Thomas Crown Affair”. As Steve McQueen states in the video, “Crown lives at the beach, and he has a sand Dune Buggy. I helped them design it, so I’m kind of proud of that. What it is, it’s set on a Volkswagen chassis, with great old wide weenies – big wide tires on it with mag wheels. Corvair engine stuffed in the back, and a semi reclining position, somewhat like my formula 1 car. It’s very light, you know, I think we are around about 230 horses, and the vehicle weighs about 1000 pounds.”
