May 2, 2012, Chino Hills, CA: “Look, you work your side of the street and I’ll work mine”
These are the words of Frank Bullitt as portrayed by iconoclastic actor Steve McQueen in the movie “Bullitt”. McQueen’s celebrated role in the film will be honored as cars, motorcycles and fans converge on Saturday June 2, 2012 at the campus of The Boys Republic, 1907 Boys Republic Drive in Chino Hills to celebrate the Fifth Annual Steve McQueen Car Show.
The Boys Republic is a private, non-profit, nonsectarian community for at-risk teens to which McQueen belonged as a 16-year old student in 1946. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Boys Republic. Parking is free and admission is $10.00 with children under 12 free.
Attendees can also get into the chase on Friday night, June 1 at The Bullitt Dinner, featuring automotive writer and editor Matt Stone as MC, son Chad McQueen, Bullitt stars Don Gordon and Pat Renella. Also expected in attendance are Fox TV’s “Alcatraz” stars Sarah Jones and David Hoflin. The fete will begin with a reception from 5:00 to 6:30, dinner from 6:30 to 7:30 and program at 7:30. Tickets are $100.00 per person and can be purchased at www.boysrepublic.org.
In addition to an expected array of 300 plus cars and motorcycles, Bullitt fans will be treated to a convoy of Bullitt Mustangs and Chargers rolling into Chino Hills as the International Mustang Bullitt Owners Club (IMBOC) arrives from Chicago. The club will be creating awareness of the event with a cross-country drive on Route 66 culminating with participation in the show. (See their website at www.Bullittevents.com)

And please pardon my personal plus, but a few years ago, I wrote a book about all of the great cars and bikes that Steve McCool owned, raced or put into his films. Its called McQueen’s Machines: The Cars and Bikes of a Hollywood Icon. The photos alone will blow you away. And if I say so myself, its a great Father’s Day gift for less than $20.00 Amazon sells it at a great price, and you can also buy publisher direct at www.motorbooks.com
