ROUTE 66 STARCARS ASSEMBLE! TRANSFORMER SIGHTING?

Thanks to Jason, we connected to a great Route 66 car themed restaurant and car show in Santa Clarita. Now usually at car shows we get 3-5 car owners that are interested in sitting next to their cars for a charity, but there were some great differences at this event, and all the cars came rolling in! First, cool restaurant, that none of us had been to before, cool car show, but more important, a LATE start time (no 6 am line ups for this group!) so we rolled in around 3 PM and they gave us front row spots. The band was great (and not too loud!) and it wasn’t that hot either! Everything came together for a nice day looking at cool cars, and catching up with each other, and meeting a few new star car friends! First, we need a roll call of everyone who was there:
In the #1 spot, Paul with his BTTF Delorian
1409
I didn’t know that was a three seater!  Jason and his girlfriend wanted to do some time travel!

Oscar with his “ROBIN 1” plates and Magnum P.I. Ferrari was next to him,

1448

Hey, who’s driving Oscars’ car?  I hope Oscar didn’t miss a payment, and it’s getting repossessed!

Then Brian brought his James Bond BMW

PA210045
Next to Brian was a guy we haven’t seen in a while, Dave S. with his General Lee!  That’s his car I am leaning against on the main photo from the home page.  We hope to see more of Dave in the future!

1398

Lou and Linda were next to the General with his Starsky and Hutch Torino, as they should always be together. Who says red and Orange don’t go together?

PA210043

Then a pair of Herbies, Jason and New TURBO Herbie!

PA210050

We grabbed Charlie as he drove in, and put his bullit car at the end of a row, and started moving cars around.

PA210042

Hey, that guy looking at the Bullit? Yeah, That’s Chuck, he has got some sort of star car, but he didn’t want to move it for fear of a loud band?  Uh, you have a gone in 60 second mustang, you should be used to LOUD!

1425

Then Sue’s Get Smart Sunbeam sat in the shade next to the Herbies,

PA210049

Then my batmobile on the end, and in the shade, but also right in front of the band!

1413

Lucky for us, the band was great, and not too loud!  These guys rocked and had a great set that even included a few of the themes from some of our shows!

1433
And last but not least, Alex and his KITT showed up after work, and enjoyed the show!

So after everyone got a great meal in a really cool restaurant (five stars!!!) we looked around and found a few other potential members for the Star Car club!

I flagged down a WW2 jeep with a 50 caliber machine gun on the back, he was “familiar” with Rat patrol, to say the least!

Craig had done a top notch job or restoring a really great jeep!  He’s in the club!

I missed a white bus somehow, otherwise I would have suggested a partridge family paint job….

and I didn’t think he could make any shows too far away, but this guy gets the “GREEN ACRES” star car seal of approval!

green acres tractor
lastly there was a transformer fan with a first movie camaro tribute to bumble bee…

Some yellow air foils, add some dirt and rust, and he’s almost got it! (not the correct year, but hey, he had a bumble bee on his motor!)

Whew!  That was a lot of star cars all in one place!   Later in the night Bob showed up with his Fast and Furious car,

but had to park across the street as the place was packed!  He did a big burn out for the spectators though!

So it was one of the biggest gathering of star cars yet!   Everyone got to spend some time chatting with each other, instead of answering our “5 questions” all day, so we all found a shady spot and started yaking!

get smart
Sue had lots of fans to deal with, that machine gun gets people’s  attention!

All the Truman’s know what to do when they hear “ACTION POSE!”

1436

Oscar hanging out with the ladies…. that Magnum car has it’s effects…..  I wonder what effect owning a Herbie or a Horace has on a guy?

1437

oh.  I see.   Brian is uh, actually explaining how much he likes to dance at clubs….

1440

Lou and Linda and Charlie talk about next years BBQ…..

herbie

Jason always on the look out for a good photo op got one with the star of the TV show OPERATION  REPO

Then suggested he take one with his girlfirend….

operation repo

NO NO!!! TAKE A PICTURE, NOT THE GIRL!!!

1464

Lots of fans, good food, good friends and nice weather, it was fun all around!  I think we may be back next year!

richard petty 43

I even got to meet the owner of this Richard Petty replica, and he was thinking of making a batmobile….

Finally all of the trophies were given out, and we could start to leave.  The star car Kats all slipped out into the knight, to their various caves and hiding places, not to be seen again until next time when the call goes out   “STAR CAR CENTRAL – ASSEMBLE!”
