Here are the flavors, the colors and the spirit of a time that those under 20 may not know about. A time when there was fuel in gas stations at a cheap price, where the radars on roads more deadly, did not exist, a society that does astreignait not five fruits and vegetables per day, but do not forget that rarely is the gun while consuming them in puffs of cigarettes sold in packets coloured. In short, the middle ages. Or the belle époque. It is according to.
What is certain, however, is that the ideas and fantasies of this space-time, persist in the collective imagination. And it is seller. Among the symbols, one will put in the first rank of an actor Steve McQueen , who was also a pilot. At least that it is not the reverse.

Not less.
It took three years of work to make the album. “We’re really trying to highlight the quality of the comic, as well as the motivation which is at its origin , “explains Sandro Garbo on the site line clear. “It is a book that will appeal to all fans of classic cars, motor racing and of the work of Steve McQueen “. And it will be the most beautiful effect under the arm at the Salon Rétromobile, which will take place from 8 to 12 February at the porte de Versailles.
