A profile of Steve McQueen: Autoweek archives

Fri, 21 Oct 2011

For today's Autoweek archive feature, we are highlighting an article by Denise McCluggage from February 1981.

McCluggage knew McQueen and recalls her encounters with the “King of Cool” through the years until his death.

Before becoming a star, McQueen and McCluggage met over their mutual love of automobiles, more specifically the MG-TC, which both subsequently owned.

From McQueen's rise to fame to his untimely death, McCluggage recounts their sporadic friendship--an article that is interesting, insightful and a personal perspective: “Steve and I had a wide range of commonality.”

McQueen was an accomplished actor, motorcycle and automobile racer and enthusiast. He died in 1980 after an operation to remove tumors caused by malignant mesothelioma.
