Book Review: McQueen’s Machines, the cars and bikes of a hollywood icon, by Matt Stone, softcover edition

March 9th, 2012 by admin

by the numbers
5 chapters
92 pieces of paper between the covers, none blank, none wasted

The form and layout are fine. There is so much to cover and space isn’t wasted, only 6 pages are text only, all the rest are both pictures and text.

High quality photos, about half are new, and half vintage photographs. 100 black and white, 135 color

No complaints at all. Since it isn’t possible to show a photo of every car, truck, bike, and airplane that Steve McQueen ever had, as I think probably half were likely never photographed, though I’d like to see more photos of the vehicles I don’t think that is realistic to expect we will ever find a more complete collection of them than this book.

the chapters divide the book into McQueen’s Garage, Screen, Track, Two Wheels, and Enduring Legacy

The 1st chapter covers the ‘53 Siata 208s, the ‘58 Porsche Speedster 1600 super, the ‘57 Jaguar XK/SS, the ‘63 Ferrari 250 Lusso, the ‘67 Mini Cooper S, a single photo of a 66 Vette tail and it’s whereabouts are unknown, the ‘67 Ferrari 275 GTS/4 NART Spyder (one of 10 built), Jeep CJ that Von Dutch pinstriped, ‘69 Porsche 911S, the ‘52 Hudson Wasp, and has a more brief look and text about the ‘49 Cadillac series 62, the ‘57 Bel Air, the 50’s 3100 series Chevy truck, and both a ‘57 and a ‘68 Ford truck.

Then only text to list the half track Army surplus that he left with Von Dutch in Arizona, a ‘51 Hudson Hornet, a 53 Allard with a hemi, a ‘49 Cadillac 4 dr, a ‘31 Lincoln Club Sedan, a ‘35 Chrysler Airflow, a ‘30 Cadillac coupe, a WW2 Willys Jeep, and 3 Packards: a ‘39 Super 8 four door sedan, a rare Super 8 convertible coupe, and a ‘40 series 120 convertible coupe.

Mentioned, and with a couple photos are Steve’s airplanes, a ‘41 and ‘45 Boeing Stearman, and a 1930’s
