The Friends of Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show has experienced steady growth and increasing popularity witnessed by the array of more than 300 classic cars and nearly 100 motorcycles at the 2013 show. Approximately 5,000 attendees perused the grounds, enjoying up close and personal views of collectible cars and motorcycles.
Last year’s event donated approximately $210,000 to the Boys Republic, which was established in 1907 as a private, non-profit community for at-risk teens. Alumnus Steve McQueen attended from 1947-49 and credited the school with pointing him on the path to success. McQueen never forgot and was a frequent visitor, even after he became a Hollywood star and legend. The McQueen family continues that involvement.
The Boys Republic is located at 1907 Boys Republic Drive, Chino Hills, CA
General admission for the Saturday event is $10.00 and is free for children 12 years and under.
