BOTCON AT PASADENA CONVENTION CENTER STARCARCENTRAL.COM ROLLED OUT THE AUTOBOTS!

Star Car Central is made up of quite of collection of cool cars and just as cool and varied owners/drivers!  If you had told me a few years back that I would have so many starcars that I would find and connect cars like Transformer owners, I would have laughed!  But now off shoots are going to events that are just for their type of car.   Back on June 3-5,2011 (I know, I am trying to catch up!)  Bumblebee owner Jon Merker  and Jason Ybarra with his  Ratchet Medic van decided to display their transformer autobots at the annual BOTCON Convention held this year at the Pasadena convention center.   The robot fans flipped out when they saw the cars.
Friday morning BOTCON held their annual fan film festival screening. There were 16 short films shown and that night at 10pm the winners were announced. “Trampsformers” won 3rd place.

Photoshopped? Well, yes, but they were all there! From left to right , Writer/Director : Hahnah Jackson, Laundryman: David Bear, Tramp: Jason Ybarra, Thug: Jon Merker, Editor: Alex Wong, not shown was Scott Bradlee :the music composer.

Congrats to the Transformer SCC team who won third place for their movie “Trampsformers!”

 Then on Saturday Alex Wong brought his KITT to be displayed too. Possible new members to SCC were on hand as well. Paul from Pomona brought his Ironhide and Shannon from Arizona brought his Trailbreaker to be on display too.  Stay tuned to see Paul with SCC, soon a whole set of Transformers!!! (video down below of all ratchets features!)

"Transformers, ROLL OU.... hey, where's optimus and who's that new guy?" "Hey Guys, I'm KITT. Optimus went out with Goliath and left me in charge."

A fun weekend in all, with Bumblebee,Ratchet, and Ironhide even taking a cruise to IN N OUT on Saturday night! and then a theater in Santa Monica showed the original 1986 Transformers cartoon movie Sunday night where Ratchet and Bumblebee were displayed outside the theater as well, many of the voice actors were in house too!

THE ORIGINAL TRANSFORMER FEATURE FILM BACK ON THE BIG SCREEN!

"I've never seen this movie, nothing happens to Optimus Prime, right? Right? Hey Guys..."

You can find many more photos from BOTCON as well as a link to watch “Trampsformers” Ratchet on page 2 of Ratchets website :  http://www.cardomain.com/ride/3897880
watch the video, and see what his licence plate reads out! NICE, JASON!  The boys and bots have found each other, and there is no turning back!  Great job everyone!

ABILITY FIRST AND STAR CAR CENTRAL TEAM UP AGAIN FOR THE OSCAR RED CARPET EXTRAVAGANZA!

We're on a mission from StarCarCentral!

Ability first’s annual red carpet event was attended by many famous faces and cars, thanks in part to Nate Truman’s Star Car Central.com gang of volunteers!

The Blues Brother’s own 74 Monaco was in the shop, so Mark G. stepped up and offered his Adam-12 Patrol vehicle to transport the famous Duo!

One Adam 12 with Joan Rivers and the Blues Brothers?

“Joan Rivers” tried to interest Mark in giving her a ride, but he would have none of that!

"Joan, I told you, no rides in the patrol car!"

Brian and his Robo Herbie is a regular at this event and this time he delivered in Herbie….. BONO?

Bono trying to look cool in Herbie.

Thanks to SCC member Craig the star of the parade William Christopher who played Father Mulcahey for years on the M.A.S.H. TV series showed up in style in a ww2 jeep (usually sporting the RAT PATROL markings)

William Christopher during his days on M.A.S.H.

Paul delivered Edward Cullen character from the movie Twilight Then peeled out down the red carpet

Jason's Ratchet and a baby transformer following behind!

Transformers were big this year, with Jason in his Ratchet van, Jon and his Camaro Bumblebee and a few transformers in costumes that would transform from autobot to

vehicle!  Even a motorcycle costume transformed.

"Autobots, roll out.... faster... transform all ready......"

Everyone enjoys the great event each year, and this was no exception.  Mark “Adam-12″ said he will come back as long as they want him!

Each year Michael Barkyoumb, Center Director puts on a top notch show for the special needs “clients” and he never fails to bring something new to the party each time!

Thanks to all who helped make this night special for everyone, and a big thank you from me for all the Star Car Central.com members who took their time and their amazing rides to the event!

All expenses come out of their own pockets, gas, trailer rentals for some, repairs, insurance and I couldn’t be prouder of these guys and gals!

Stop by and see us at Frank and Sons Collector show this Saturday, it may be our last appearance there for the forseeable future due to our busy summer schedule!

If you want to see RATCHET and BUMBLEBEE they will be there, as well as the pacific Palisades parade on the 4th of July! (See yesterday’s blog for links at the bottom!)

Now I have to go install a reel to reel tape recorder in my A-Team van, and paint some cabinets – not sure if I am going to make my own deadline of the 4th, we shall see!

Until next time, Star car fans!

Montery Park plays host to StarCarCentral in Parade! Let’s ROLL!

 May 21st was the City of Monterey Park’s “Play Day Parade and Carnival”. Lots of marching bands a marching, drill teams a drilling and horses a pooping and a call went out to Nate Truman’s StarCarCentral.com group to show up and Rock the HOUSE!
‘KITT!  TURBOBOOST, QUICK!!!”
KITT may be impervious to harm, but he was still seen navigating around horse manure!  Lot of fun in the sun and cool covered parking for the Star Cars of the day. This new Star Car Central event was organized and coordinated by “Starcarcentraloid” Jason “Buckaroo” Ybarra (Transformer Ratchet). Jason did a great job in putting a group together for this event in a very short time. A special thanks goes out to Jon Merker (Bumble Bee Transformer) for providing the Stanchions and for being the only guy tall enough to plug our electrical cords in the outlet that was located approx. eight feet high.

Star Car Central, ROLL OUT!

A big bunch of  Star Car Central rolled out for the Montery Park Parade this year!  ROLL CALL:  Here was the line up!  Jason (Ratchet Transformer van), jon  (Bumblebee Camaro),alex (KITT from Knight Rider) with his boy “Will I Am”,Oscar (Magnum P.I. Ferrari)

Tony (Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am) , Paul “The Banner Boy Guy” and Reba “Clara” Parkinson (Back to the Future Delorean). We all met at Mcdonalds then cruised to the parade route.  At the main booth they announced the driver and the cars over the loudspeaker. From there we ended up at the park where the carnival was going on. David Barron, the Monterey park city clerk ( Jason’s  former neighbor) set the gang up with a nice place to display our cars, treated all of us to shakeys pizza and drinks. We were even announced durring the awards ceremony and star car central.Com won a 1st place trophy!

The Autobots were taking charge!

It was a stop and go parade, mostly marching bands and drill teams.  High light for Oscar and his Magnum Ferrari was when he  was announced as the Hawaii 5-0 car when he pass the grand stands! NICEEE. Kids today, they need to watch more classic TV!
Oscar also coined a new term,  “starcarcentraloids”   we shall see if it sticks!    Everyone had a great time,  except Nate, who wasn’t there.  Next, other events Nate didn’t go to.
:)  But soon, I will be back on the road with my gang of cool dude and dudettes in the sweetest rides ever seen on screen!~  Thanks to Jason for a quick parade! Great job guys!
