Steve McQueen exibit at Petersen Museum

Steve McQueen, actor and race driver, pop icon who died fairly young at the age of 50, is being honored with an exibit at the Petersend Museum in Los Angeles. An exibit of cars once owned by McQueen is being assembled with the help of his son Chad McQueen, and in the case of certain vehicles like the Bullit Mustang, replicas are being displayed.

While Bullit may have only been a mediocre film, the chase scene where McQueen is in the Mustang flying at times through San Francisco is Holywood and Gearhead legend.
