Steve McQueen’s Bug

The film ‘Le Mans’ forever captured in it,
three legends.
First, is the Gulf racing Porsche 917.
Second, the Heuer Monaco wristwatch.
(my timepiece holy grail)
Third and the encore,
it immortalized Steve McQueen.

I have yet to land a model of that mighty
Gulf Porsche and something in me has
been throbbing to pacify this desire.
Once again tapping the ‘lazy custom’
approach and idle time to burn, the end
result is my tribute to Cool McQueen!

I would imagine Steve having a Flat-6
Porsche engine mounted at the back.

Since this is an ode to the 70’s, EMPI
was put to task on the VW performance.

Of course, this VW is a Matchbox,
a legend in diecast cars.
