This is all about building a Steve McQueen Tribute air cooled 911 that will promote his favorite charitable organization the Boys Republic.
Boys Republic is a private, nonprofit, nonsectarian school and treatment community for troubled youngsters. Since its founding in 1907, it has guided more than 30,000 at-risk teenage boys and girls toward productive, fulfilling lives. One of its most famous alumni was Porsche enthusiast Steve McQueen who often credited the school for guiding his life onto the path of success.
Make no mistake this is not going to be just any 911, this will be a Steve McQueen inspired real drivers car. The process will be documented along the way and the final video will star Matt Farah from The Smoking Tire and DriveTV fame.
The core of the build will be handled by the amazing team at Bisimoto Engineering.
Can’t get enough of the Friends of Steve McQueen Car show? Come support Boys Republic by attending the Drive & Show in Chino, California. The show features antique and classic cars with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Boys Republic. The Drive & Show is free to the general public. You’ll see antique, classic and collector cars at this event, hosted by the Yanks Air Museum. The first 200 participants are entered into a raffle, with one of the prizes being a ride in a vintage aircraft.
History makers aren’t always aware of the greatness of their moments while living in them. Bruce Meyers is one of these people. The father of theretofore unknown automotive recreation industries, some of his offspring grew up to be cultural phenomena. Bruce built the very first “dune buggy” a surprising 50 years ago. In a nod to the anniversary, Manx was an honored guest at the 2014 Friends of Steve McQueen Car and Motorcycle Show.

Spike TV pays homage to one of Hollywood’s iconic movie stars, Steve McQueen, in the original Spike TV documentary “I Am Steve McQueen.” The 90-minute special, narrated by Robert Downey Jr., will premiere on Spike TV, Tuesday, June 24 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
“I Am Steve McQueen” tells the incredible life story of this legendary actor, racer, and cultural icon. Extensive interviews, movie clips, archival footage and sound bites chronicle his extraordinary career while focusing on the correlation between his on-screen and off-screen experiences. The film is produced by Derik Murray and directed by Jeff Renroe.
“I Am Steve McQueen” is told through the eyes of the people that knew him best including much of his family that followed his path into acting including son Chad, (“Karate Kid”), his grandson Steven (“Vampire Diaries”), granddaughter Molly (“Carjacked”) and former wives Neile Adams McQueen (“This Could Be The Night”), Ali MacGraw (“Love Story”), and his widow former model Barbara Minty McQueen. Also featured will be an array of luminaries from Hollywood including Gary Oldman, Pierce Brosnan, Marisa Miller, Robert Vaughn, Randy Couture, John Gilmore, Zoe Bell, Norman Jewison, Kristin Kreuk, and Ben Mankiewicz.
Known as the “King of Cool,” McQueen will forever be known in cinematic lore by his rugged good looks, bad-boy persona, and searing charisma. He grew from a small-town thug to become the highest paid and most sought-after actor of his generation. McQueen’s credits include “The Sand Pebbles” (for which he was nominated for an Academy Award), “The Thomas Crown Affair,” “The Getaway,” “Papillon,” “The Magnificent Seven,” and “The Towering “Inferno.”
McQueen lived fast and drove faster, channeling his passion for racing cars and motorcycles into seminal stunts and chase scenes in classic movies like “The Great Escape” and “Bullitt.”
“In a time of social upheaval, McQueen’s art imitated his life through the cinematic expression of his own true essence,” said Derik Murray, Executive Producer. “McQueen became a symbol of American freedom and individuality and this documentary truly captures his unforgettable spirit.”
Spike TV’s Kevin Kay, Christopher Martello, and Jaimee Kosanke serve as Executive Producers along with Chad McQueen, and Dave Green from McQueen Racing LLC; Tim Gamble from Thunderbird, and Derik Murray, Paul Gertz, Kent Wingerak, Robert Pirooz, David Reeder, and Ali Pejman from Network Entertainment.
The documentary is the latest in Spike TV’s original “I Am” series. The network debuted the critically-acclaimed ‘I Am Bruce Lee” in 2012, also produced by Derik Murray.
