    Steve McQueen’s final movie, The Hunter, featured a chase scene in which a 1979 Pontiac Trans Am was destroyed. Two were wrecked in filming and, when production wrapped, one went to an Indiana junkyard, while the other was gifted to an Illinois farmer. After 39 years, the one gifted to the Illinois farmer has been unearthed from a barn (location not discloded). What’s left of the car is damaged by a simulated crash and explosion, plus the ravages of time and barn rodents. PHS Automotive Services has authenticated the car.

    Anything Steve McQueen related is cool, seems like it should end up in a museum.
