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.”
#75Race has posted a few more photos that he found of his dad desert racing his off road buggy in the 70′s and 80′s on Race Dezert. Do you have photos that you would like to share?
