(FoxNews) – No one will ever be as cool as Steve McQueen, but owning his Harley- 
Davidson might be the next best thing.

McQueen’s 1938 Harley WLD Solo Sport (above) will be sold at a Mecum Auctions
event in Anaheim, California. The bike still wears its original factory paint, and its 
odometer shows 21,000 miles.

The Harley’s pedigree is fully documented, including a certificate of authenticity
from McQueen’s 1984 estate sale. It also comes with a few of McQueen’s own
tools, which were found in a frame-mounted tool box when the bike was first
sold.

FROM PDX RETRO ~

VeteransDayHonorThanks

IWO JIMA MEMORIAL TODAY


President
Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day for November
11, 1919.
In 1945, World War II veteran Raymond Weeks from Birmingham, 
Alabama, had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans,
not just those who died in World War I. He led a delegation to then Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, who supported the idea of a National Veterans
Day. The first national celebration was in 1947 in Alabama. Congress
changed the name of the holiday to “Veterans” day in 1954.
