Consequently, I saw this picture of Steve McQueen pop up on my Facebook feed today, and was reminded of the great article it was attached to. A few years back I found some photos of an old 1971 Sport's Illustrated article about Steve McQueen. He always saw himself as a rider and a racer first (both motorcycles and cars) and then other things fell in line later. The pictures I saw of the article were good enough to read and it was neat to see and hear from Steve in that fashion - a rider, mechanic, tweaker of mechanical goodness.
Well, I found that someone had posted that same article - much more readable (especially on an iPad or phone) than looking at pictures of the original article. So without further ado - I'm going to send you to another blog, The Selvedge Yard, to enjoy this classic article.
Let's check back in a couple of weeks and see if any of us were able to be polar bears this year. :D
