When it comes to famous movie and TV car get togethers, we never know what to expect! At our last showing of 20 cars John Schneider, star of “Dukes of Hazzard” and “Smallville” stopped by and at the same time, Claudia Wells star of “Back to the Future” and who also appeared on “The Love Bug” TV series also stopped by, and the cameras all came out for some fun “crossgeeking” (tm Nate Truman)
Crossgeeking is when two geeky hobbies or pursuits collide, like the star of “Dukes of Hazzard” posing with the Blues Brothers! Not to be confused with geekswapping, where fans exchange non matching fan paraphernalia. Such as “I’ll give you a Batmobile for that Boba Fett doll”
The A-team Van is waiting on it’s front Grill guard, but that didn’t stop the fans from wanting to jump in and shout “I pity the fool!” I love it when a VAN comes together!
The first LA appearance of Tony’s newly restored Smokey and the bandit Trans am. This car is better than brand new, and was a hit with the fans!
John Schneider as always is so down to earth and as his General Lee appeared in the Car and Driver article with Starcarcentral.com it was nice to see him again as part of the SCC gang! It was nice to see he didn’t care he came in second to my Batmobile!
Claudia Wells and John Schneider had fun posing in all of the cars, once we handed them some props, they were ready to start making sequels!
Well we had 20 cars and lots of crazy moments! So much so that there are too many photos of cars and stars than I can ever put in a blog! Charger Steve’s Scooby Doo van, Alex and his Kitt, Jenn’s SPM KITT the bumblebees (yes, we had two and they met and chatted with the voice actor for Bumblebee!) and Buckaroo’s ratchet transformer medical van, Lou’s great starsky car, Pauls’ BTTF Delorean, Josephs General Lee, Oscar’s Magnum P.I. Ferrari, Brian’s Herbie the Love bug, and the Extreme Green Team and on and on! We didn’t break our own records, but had a great time and most everyone had a great meal afterward! Thanks to Frank and Sons for a great opportunity for a rare indoor show! Special thanks to Jay and Peter and Paul and the whole Extreme Green team that were a big help all day long!
OK, one more photo! Alex brought is printer, he had someone take this photo, then printed it out for Claudia Wells to sign the same day! As the Joker says “Where does he get those wonderful toys?”
