What a STAR CAR filled day this last Saturday. The sun was shining and the annual Burbank parade was lining up on side streets along Olive Ave.
Jason (Herbie) had suggested that the Star Car Association was perfect for the Burbank goes Hollywood theme
this year, and the members agreed! I know star car fans like photos better than reading, so here was the line up!
Jason’s Herbie was getting in good with the Judges, and helped us win first place~
Sue brought her Get Smart Sunbeam, with new Machine Gun, and Maxwell Smart as well!
Chuck brought his “Rod Riguez” as pretty as always!
Oscar back in his proper Red Ferrari, had his Detroit cap, Hawaiian shirt, now he needs a mustache!
I brought my KITT for it’s first appearance with the SCA, Alex works on Saturdays, so the Batmobile stayed in the cave!
R2D2, Yoda, and Darth, along with a storm trooper all came with Obi-Shawn in his star wars car
Paul aka Mad Max was in place followed by a few other Law enforcement vehicles….
Lou and Linda (with neck brace NOT due to Lou jumping his car over hills) were ready to go along with
Adam-12 Mark’s great police cruiser. Bringing up the rear, was a pair of famous air cooled VW bugs,
Jerry’s herbie and Brian’s Horace the Hate bug!
Hey, how come that Brian keeps getting in the photos? Sir, please move away from the famous car….
Wow, that’s quite a line up, considering we lost Paul’s BTTF Delorian to another event across town, and
at the last minute Tom and HIS batmobile had to catch a flight and couldn’t make it. But wait? Isn’ t THAT
So as I was explaining to the guys why not only did Tom not bring his batmobile, but I brought KITT instead of
MY batmobile, up the street drives my old pal James D. Simone in his home made scratch built 4 seater batmobile!
We got him to park with us for a while, but he was scheduled to transport a congressman down the street ahead of us!
So there would have been two batmobiles anyway!
The parade started on time, and we had a nice shady street to wait on, and take photos of each others cars, even pose for
a group photo with Darth Vader, a Storm Trooper and Get Smart!
The we all jumped in our cars as the judging was over, and we didn’t even know we had won first place!
Sirens blaring, lights blinking, stormtroopers posing, what’s not to like?
The crowd loved seeing their old “friends” from TV, each car had different fans, and it is always fun to see the recogntion
on people’s faces as they remember what show each car is from! I enjoyed having Air Conditioning, and a ROOF!
So after the parade, winning our division, and letting a few cars cool their motors for a bit, we had another big star car
event to go to after that!
