Pictures & Stories from the Steve McQueen 30th Anniversary Tribune & Film Festival:

Hey guys, I figure since so many of us involved with drivers duty I figured it would be good start a thread to share.

Anyway here's some of mine.

Lots of funny stories but the best for me had to be when we finally settled on who was driving who (a story in and of itself because some of the VIPs wanted to couble up leaving some of our Loyal Bullittheads high & dry).

Anyway I ended up driving Chad's son's - Steven & Chase. Great kids I have to say - well mannered and personable. I'm sure my 10 & 7 year old daughters will love that as they reconized Steven from some Disney movies in the pictures I showed them prior to leaving this morning. But what was really funny was that just as we where about to leave the "W" Hotel's to the Theater – Chad jumps out of the lead car & comes up to my window – leans in & puts his hand on my shoulder & says: “No pressure – but you should know you've got the only surviving male Steve McQueen gene pool riding in your car.”

DOH! :shock:

Oh yeah – “No Pressure” – we all laughed about it but at that point I realized that “IF” there was an accident of any sort – I didn’t want to survive it with that on my head. ;)

Anyway it was a great event - I just wished it'd turned out better for some of the other Bullittheads who had worked so hard for this and been involved from the start...

I was given the pleasure of driving Jacqueline Bisset and her friend to the event in my 68. Arriving at her home at 5:20 pm, I waited for Miss Bisset to step out her front door. When she did, she looked great! However, when seeing the car that was taking her to the event, she remarked, "That's the Bullitt, I was wondering what was making all that noise."

After getting Miss Bisset buckled in the passenger seat, and her friend settled in the back, we headed down Benedict Canyon to Sunset Blvd. Although traffic was heavy, I was able to pull up to the red carpet at the Cinerama Dome right at 6:00 pm as Miss Bisset was the first celebrity scheduled to appear.

As with Jim253, taking pictures was a difficult task.:cry:
Steve NYC,
During the drive home, Miss Bisset seemed very happy with the outcome of the event. She mentioned about how long it had been since seeing her co-stars, and was glad to see them all together again. She also told me that Peter Yates was very ill, and in the hospital in the U.K.:cry: I asked her about the Porsche she drove in the movie. She said it belonged to the Asst. Director, and that she really enjoyed driving the car. So all in all, a great time, and good memories for all involved.:cool:
