SMOOTH AC­TION MEN AND FAST CARS

My Weekly Special - - Contents -

If you wanted ac­tion Steve McQueen was the man who loved fast cars and motorbikes and did most of his own film stunts. “The only time I re­ally hon­estly re­lax is at speed in a fast car or on a bike,” he once ad­mit­ted. “If trou­ble comes up you want to be cool enough to cope with it. I think a cool guy with a fast car can be ver y pop­u­lar.”

Roger Moore was looked cool in a fast car whether he was 007 or The Saint. “Nice cars, ei­ther spor ty and fast or huge and el­e­gant, are par t of your dress code,” he once said. “What lady wants to be taken out for din­ner on a tan­dem bike?”

Tom Cruise is still fill­ing cin­e­mas and likes noth­ing bet­ter than to roar around the countr y in a fast car. “I don’t know if cars and speed at­tract the ladies,” he said. “Prob­a­bly they do, but the car has to look good and the driver has to know what he is do­ing. No lady wants to be fright­ened to death or have her hair knot­ted by the an­tics of some lu­natic be­hind the wheel. Ladies like a man to be in con­trol – even at 120 mph.”
