CALABASSAS PUMPKIN FESTIVAL 2009 OCT 17-18 NO BATMOBILE BUT A NEW KITT!

This has been the busiest season yet, for stacarcentral.com and we are nearing the end of the car show season, but we are no where near done yet! Last weekend about 15 star cars showed up over the weekend to support the Pumpkin Festival and car show, as well as show up for
a couple of special kids from a new partner Steven Firestein http://www.KidsCancerConnection.org. He finds fun activities for families touched by cancer and works all the details to bring a fun day to children and families dealing with childhood cancers.

Obi Shawn took the point on Saturday, along with Yoda, and as always had many fans want photos and to talk with a real Jedi.


Sue “upped her game” and now Maxwell Smart sits in the car, with his new SHOE PHONE!

We set up our chairs, and over the course of the day, were a syncronized sitting team, finding the shade under the big orange arch!

We started in an “L” and moved around the back. I am not kidding when I ask for SHADE for the drivers! It was in the 90’s on Sunday.

We each did an interview for a local TV show, and Paul told the guys it was OK to lean against that Red car to steady their shot…. as their arms got tired and they ran out of tape…. Kidding, Oscar, they didn’t hurt your car…. It belongs to “Mawster Robin” anyway!

See? No one is touching… or looking at your car! (Oscar got intervied too, don’t worry.)

Charlie brought his Bullit Mustang, and even had the original owner in the front seat!

We didn’t care if we were talking to the back of each other’s heads, no one was sitting in the sun!

On the flip side, Cliff’s Nascar Herbie, and Lou’s Torino teamed up.

Lastly the debut of my KITT with totally redone dash. I can’t say “restored” because it never looked as good! Alex Wong is a Knight Rider GOD! But everyone kept asking why KITT wasn’t talking…. that’s ALEX’s car (Brian, he’s getting a bigger remote for the next showdown!)
I need to check my own flyer to make sure I didn’t miss anyone in the inteview! This was the only time I voluntarily stepped into the direct sunlight!

One of the guys at the fair kept circling KITT and telling stories about the car,  then he brought over the plates he wouldn’t return to the DMV

Even though it was hot, everyone had cold water and good car pals to sit in the exclusive section behind the fence! (Which moved to include any and all shade!) Maybe it will be cooler tomorrow?

GENERAL LEE SHOOT with DOUGLAS SONDERS

Douglas is a fan of all of our Star Cars, and he was searching for a General Lee to shoot, and also wanted to photograph the Tango and Cash truck, so that narrowed the possiblities down to one star car owner, Bob Hartwig! I think Bob is having a good time, and that is a world class burn out, but you will have to click the link to watch it!
