  • Trivia

    • Steele has the most unusual way of hot-wiring a car. First, he touches two wires, causing a spark. Then, he crosses the same wires several times with his bare fingers - and nothing happens. After the wires are crossed, everybody gets into the jeep and only then does the engine turn over, as though somebody has magically turned the key in the ignition.
