I can tell you one thing. Steve McQueen would never wear white socks with a black leather suit and black boots.

From IMDB:

Steve McQueen was a car-racing fanatic and owned a Porsche 908. Driving this car during the 12 Hours of Sebring's 1970 edition with professional driver Peter Revson, he finished a close second behind Mario Andretti, who was determined "not to be beaten by a movie star". Andretti was driving a Ferrari 512. McQueen also wanted to be in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but was denied permission by the film's producers. His Porsche eventually did participate, driven by Herbert Linge and Jonathan Williams, with three cameras to get "live" footage for the movie. Despite the spoiled aerodynamics and frequent stops to change film rolls, the car managed to finish ninth. According to a persistent rumor, McQueen may have driven it secretly after all.

Yep, Garner did all his own driving. However, Yves Montand didn't drive his own car after a spin. He let them tow him around the racetrack! This completely stunned Garner who could not imagine doing such a dangerous thing himself.

Marx and McQueen: Racing against Communism in Fordist America


http://ijms.nova.edu/Spring2010/IJMS_Artcl.Medovoi.html


Quote:
What does Karl Marx have to do with Steve McQueen? Or to put the question in the context that concerns this essay, how might Marx clarify the postwar American obsession with motorcycles and speeding cars that McQueen embodied? This is a question that might be approached in two distinct ways. One would take Marx as the question’s subject: how, as a thinker, does Marx help us to understand the postwar culture of speed? The other takes Marx as the question’s object: how did Marx’s historical legacy in the twentieth century lead us to McQueen? We will find the answer to both of these questions in an unlikely place: the American suburb.
