All I knew was that Steve McQueen was (is?) a Hoosier.

And a pretty hot one too, if you asked me.

Or maybe it was the cars that were always so hot...

Answering before I look at the other comments.

3. Logansport. Or was that where their dad lived?

4. Anderson?

Ok, now I'll look at the other's answers above.

I remember The Egg and I, but don't remember the Indiana connection.

And you left out the other question.

6. Where were Buffy, Jodie and Cissy from? And they continually mispronounced the name.
