Steve McQueen’s “lost” stunt car from the movie Bullitt will be on display at the 2017 SoCal Harvest taking place this weekend at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. The 1968 Ford Mustang—one of two stunt cars driven by Steve McQueen in Bullitt—had been lost for nearly 50 years until it was recently discovered in Mexico, and holds particular interest for Laurie, who recently completed a book and a movie about the spiritual life of iconic actor Steve McQueen. The Bullitt car will be on display under the helmets at Angel Stadium on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20 before and after the Harvest Crusade, and will tie-in to Laurie’s mention of McQueen’s story during his Saturday night message as he talks about the about the hope that is available to everyone through Christ, regardless of race, background, or walk of life.
Local pastor and evangelist Greg Laurie will bring his annual Harvest Crusade outreach back to Southern California for the 28th year running this weekend, August 18 – 20. The 2017 SoCal Harvest will feature a nightly message of hope from Laurie and music from top Christian artists including Crowder, Grammy Award-winning hip hop artist Lecrae, Jeremy Camp, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, Andy Mineo, American Idol finalist Danny Gokey, NBC’s The Voice finalist Brennley Brown, and worship leader Phil Wickham (artists vary by night). The Sunday evening SoCal Harvest program will conclude with a fireworks display.
Media credentials for the SoCal Harvest may be obtained by presenting company identification at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on the field level near the third base dugout (enter the stadium at Gate 2). Media check-in begins at 4 p.m. each afternoon.
