Highlight on “Q Branch” James Bond BMW!

Star Car Central’s resident “Q Branch”, Brian Uiga, built this replica
of the “Tomorrow Never Dies” radio-controlled rocket firing BMW two
years ago for SCC charity events starting with the Boys and Girls club
fundraiser in Santa Paula on New Year’s Eve 2009! Little did Brian know back then,

the adventures it was going to take him on!

Avis booth.

After many StarCarCentral.com appearances with his new James Bond Car, Brian was invited to a speical “Bond Cars Only” event!

2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the original James Bond film
“Doctor No”, so the British Academy of Film and Television Arts
(http://www.bafta.org/losangeles/news/007-at-50-the-complete-james-bond-retrospective,3316,BA.html)
set up a 50th anniversary screening of all of the James Bond films,
including a special double bill of “Goldeneye” and “Tomorrow Never
Dies” at the American Cinematheque
(http://americancinemathequecalendar.com/content/goldeneye-tomorrow-never-dies).

Of course the BMW had to be there!  Along with director Martin
Campbell (director of “Goldeneye” and “Casino Royale”), Brian’s BMW
was special guest at the screening – parked out front with all of the
weapons deployed in case any SPECTRE agents show up!

Ready to fend off any attack with his screen used foam
rubber stunt gun from “Tomorrow Never Dies”

Weapons out and ready!

The crowds started lining up an hour before the show…

Don’t turn your back on the rocket car…

When the other “special guest” director Martin Campbell arrived, he
and Brian shared a few jokes about how much better “Goldeneye” and
“Casino Royale” were than “Tomorrow Never Dies”, and he signed the
dashboard of the BMW.

“This movie wasn’t quite as good as “Goldeneye”, but
you have to admit the car was better than your Z3!”

Between the two shows there was a Q&A with Martin Campbell where he
talked about his experiences filming two Bond films.  Best line of the
night:  When asked whether he’d do another Bond, he said “Probably
not… there’s only so many ways you can blow up an underground lair!”

Footage from the evening will be included with the BMW’s episode of
the CRAVE Online series “Star Cars” (Check back often, the BOND episode premiers soon!)(http://craveonline.com/starcars),
which has lots of SCC guys and gals showing off their TV and Movie
cars!  The premiere is on July 5th with Jason Ybarra’s Ninja Turtle
Van, but you can see a few sneak peaks on the “Star Cars” Facebook
page (http://www.facebook.com/starcarscrave)

The screening ended at 1:30am and Brian was home at 3am, but there was
no time to rest as ROBO-Herbie was at a show the next morning at
7:30am with the Ninja Turtle Van!  No rest for the Star Cars!  Somehow
he managed to keep from falling asleep long enough to shoot an
interview with “April O’Neal” showing some of the tricks that Herbie
can do:

Way to work a weekend with your starcars, Brian!
