We miss you like Tina misses Ike. Chad you were an inspiration to us all. Especially the way you whooped that little chinaman's ass. You probably could've beat up Bruce Lee if given the opportunity. You're fighting spirit will live on for ever! Cobra Kai for life son! Defeat does not exist in this dojo does it?

You and Ron Thomas(Bobby from Karate Kid) need to get together and go on a whoop ass tour around america. There's no stopping you two. Chuck Norris would go into hibernation. You should start with that big black guy Kimbo first. He seems like a worthy opponent for the dynamic duo. Don't whoop too much ass we need people to continue the human species!

This is just horrible horrible news, to actually hear you've quit acting all together. I dont get it Chad, i just don't. How can you just give up on your fans all over the world like this? How? Answer us that when your not playing with your cars. I mean, the Chad McQueen fan club is now down to just 78 people, we had 96 last year Chad! You say your got more screws in your leg than a hardware store? Well why dont you tighten the one that are loose in your head for giving up on us, your fans. Please come back to the big screen. We love you.

This is sad and depressing news. I miss working with you. I'm sorry Ive been wasting my time the last 15 years working with BS actors like Nick Cage and Tom Cruise. I will never forget those fun times on the set of "KK"! Please think about your fans and the opportunity to possibly working with me again someday!! I miss you!
All my love,

Chad, I heard a very exciting rumor that "Death Ring 2" is in the works! Please let this be true. We need to see possibly the most prolific on-screen ensamble of you, Don Swayze, and Mike Norris again. Its been far too long. Long Live Skylord!!!!!!!!

Do not re-make Le Mans. It sucked. Boring as hell. Be original.

FYI: Chad McQueen is Steve McQueen's son. Chad was nearly killed an a racing accident a couple of years ago. Not sure what he is doing these days? Besides being lucky to be alive.

There are some unique people posting here. Skylord?

There is a rumor going around that Brad Pitt is going to star in Bullitt. Get yourself a super agent and grab it for yourself. Give it your unique spin and let it rip..keep that great film in the family. Great pressure on you, but hey, like you said - you have great genes, super strength and talent from both parents.
