Apparently in honor of the Cooler King's motorcycle jump in The Great Escape, Bonhams & Butterfields are holding an Armistice Day auction of Steve McQueen memorabilia, including this vicious '53 Vincent Black Shadow once owned by the actor. The auction's at the Petersen Automotive Museum. We're now gonna go put on a turtleneck, strap on a shoulder holster, reminisce quietly to ourselves about an interminable day at SF General Hospital and the delicious sushi afterward, all while listening to some Lalo Schifrin and splashing water on our face.
