G'day Ken

I have just reviewed the new publication on Steve McQueen's cars. It's
called McQueen's Machines and it's a good book.

However there is no mention of him ever owning a 100S or any other big
Austin-Healey. However it does go into the Sprite he ran for the DHMC.

I thought that the last 100S listed as Lost in North America on the
Register might have a Steve McQueen connection. Alas, not to be. 100S
Serial number 3508 is in Ohio needing an engine and restoration. I was
contacted by the owner a couple of weeks ago. No McQueen connection.
In the December issue of Octane Magazine, there is an article on Steve
McQueen's cars, listing a 1956 Austin Healey. The article is in
conjuction with the release of a book about his cars. The book was also
on the shelf nearby in the store. The book only lists a Sprite as owned
by McQueen. Does anyone know where McQueen's Sprite is? or is this an
error in that he only raced a Sprite owned by someone else?
