UPDATE FOR 2017 EVENT -

The McQueen show is the Saturday before the GPX Zone 8 PCA Concours at the Lakewood CC that Sun. June 4th - so if you want to make it a Two-fer that weekend, head out for this well attended low key Multi-Make car show, where all displayed cars are judged by Boys Republic students, mentored by an experienced Concours Judge volunteer.

2017 Event Schedule Here, & Registration is now on-site only:
https://stevemcqueencarshow.com/event-specifics/

2017 Theme is "Sand Pebbles" -

.

This is a great SoCal Multi-Marque Charity Car Show, to benefit Steve McQuee's Alma Mater - Boys Republic. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/flag.gif)

It's a really great car show - with a great variety of motorcycles, street & race cars, light & heavy trucks, RVs/Travel Trailers, sail planes, etc. - including some of Steve McQueen's personal vehicles. Loads of Fun!!!!
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/popcorn[1].gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Since it's multi-marque - this is your chance to also show off your other non-914 sweet rides - so bring ANY VEHICLE for on-site Entry/Display, or just park in the public parking area, & go Gawk-n-Talk on their campus, enjoy the many car related vendors, food, sail plane rides, etc. & the people. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving-girl.gif)

All proceeds go to support the Boys Republic mission.

At this point, there is only on-site registration for Display, or just to park.

If you decide to Display, you will be judged by one of the students of Boys Republic - mentored by a concours judge from the various auto clubs around SoCal, including a few of us PCA volunteers.

The auto themed awards are made by the kids in their shops, & the food & event are run by the students & staff + volunteers.

I'll be there as a volunteer judge/mentor with our `88 Westy - hopefully in Display by the RVs & Trailers area (usually on the Baseball field), & perhaps my wife will join me to show off "her Happy Van"!
(IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving-girl.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

So feel free to look me/us up, &/or follow my student/judge & I, or any of the other judge teams around for a while - as well as to take it all in. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

Looks like a neat event but I've never been able to make it. This year I just might! I probably will not take the 914 but regardless will shoot lots of pics if I go.

Maybe next year.

Hey Mike, maybe you could do a thread for the HB Vintage Air show also, & post your pix & others going can do so too.

You can never have too many pix of Bitchen cars! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Did anyone go & get some pix they can upload here? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/poke.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/icon_bump.gif)

I ended up getting sick that day & couldn't go, so I can't add any pix.

Your fellow members here would probably appreciate your cool car/truck/motorcycle/etc. pix! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif)

Please post yer pix! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/type.gif)

Back in 2015 I Displayed our then freshly rolling-resto restored 1988 Westy, but couldn't really "compete," since I was mentoring the student-judge doing VWs & Porsches & RVs/Trailers categories. Here a a few pix of it there FYI - no biggie!

Attached Image Attached Image Attached Image Attached Image

> I have NO idea why the last 2 pix formatted on end vertically, since my files & the pic viewer shows them flipped horizontally to read right - Sorry, but I have NO idea how to fix them on here otherwise! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)

When I have time to comb thru my pix files, I'll see if I can find some pix form the past shows to give y'all an idea of what shows up there - including usually several cars/trucks/cycles from McQueen's personal collection (now owned by his kids or a trust or something).

IIRC I have some 914 or other Porsche pix from there, somewhere on this laptop, which I can add next .... IF I can find them in my pix dump file! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

And lest we forget - Steve McQueen both raced Porsches successfully, as well as doing the iconic "LeMans" movie! they had his 917 on display there a few years back.

Some of the best hand made trophies ever ! Hand crafted by the students on campus in the woodshop. Here's our Cool Style from 2012. Some very interesting judges, Freeman Thomas of the 911 R gruppe went over all the nooks and crannies on our black six, and had numerous questions on the equipment. If you are near Chino Hills...don't miss this event ยก
