McQueen Vs. Newman

Who Was The Better Racer?

If you look at the original poster for The Towering ­Inferno you will see Paul Newman’s name above that of Steve McQueen, but McQueen’s image to the left of Newman’s.

Two Trends In The Market

Expensive inventory was sluggish during January’s Scottsdale Auction Week, the first global collector car market event of 2017. But mainstream offerings were bright enough (and abundant enough) to push overall totals above last year’s falling tally.
