Lot 895: ALS signed "Best always, Peter," two onionskin pages, 8 x 10, personal letterhead, February 24, 1970. Letter to legendary actor Steve McQueen. In part: "Hey—I'm sorry to hear your gearbox blew up at Riverside—you must have been lapping some for that to happen; I'm sorry I missed it, not the gearbox!—I mean being there…I passed David Brown's window only yesterday and saw an Aston Martin DBS V8 in Burnt Almond—a sort of lovely chocolatey colour, slightly metallic; it should be ready in June." In fine condition. McQueen had a reputation for fast and reckless driving, and enjoyed automobile and motorcycle racing—a subject of many of his films. This letter refers to his second race with a new Porsche 908, which he could not finish because of the mechanical failure. A great piece of correspondence between actors.
