From the Inside Flap:

He made movies best remembered for their wild car chases, mad motorcycle stunts, and wheel-to-wheel racing action, but no one forgets the man at the wheel—Steve McQueen, the King of Cool. No other Hollywood star has been so closely linked with cars and bikes. McQueen’s Machines celebrates this deep-seated connection, giving readers a close-up look at the automobiles and motorcycles in McQueen’s garage, those he drove in movies, and others he raced. From the 1968 Ford Mustang GT 390 fastback he drove in Bullitt (in the greatest car chase of all time) to the custom Corvair-powered Manx dune buggy in The Thomas Crown Affair, from the Triumph motorcycle of The Great Escape to the Gulf-Porsche 917 he drove at top speed in Le Mans, the cars and bikes that McQueen made famous in films make an encore appearance here.

The book also features the cars, motorcycles, and even airplanes that McQueen owned over the years, including the 1958 Porsche Speedster he purchased new and then raced, a 1957 Jaguar XK-SS, a 1963 Ferrari 250 Lusso, a 1953 Siata 208S, a 1965 Ferrari 275 NART Spyder, and a 1969 Porsche 911S, to name but a few.

With a foreword by Steve’s son, Chad McQueen, photos from the family archive, and a wealth of details about the star’s amateur racing career, his movie stunt work, and his passion for car and motorcycle collecting, McQueen’s Machines draws a fascinating picture of one outsized man’s driving passion.

From the Back Cover:

He helped build a hot rod before he could legally drive. In the service, he hopped up a tank’s engine in the hopes of getting it to go faster. As a young acting student, he tore through Greenwich Village on his motorcycle. In 1970, he nearly won the 12 Hours of Sebring in a Porsche 908. He raced buggies in Baja, rode motorcycles all over the world, and built entire movies around his love of automobiles and motorsport. Beyond his status on stage and screen, Steve McQueen was a certifiable motorhead, and McQueen’s Machines celebrates his passion as a car enthusiast, racer, and motorcyclist.
