He had a nice run and nothing to apologize for.

I personally loved the Cannonball Run movies, myself.  I still remember him and Clint Eastwood one upping each other with regards to gun sized in City Heat.

At about 2:20, you get the last two guns pulled.  I think the full scene went two rounds, with each gun getting bigger.

He was amusing and fun to watch ..... and handsome as hell in his heyday.  One of these days, I'll get around to watching Sharkey's Machine.
