You just never know with our events who is going to show up. This one was a lone email asking us if we could bring some star cars to a CHP event, on a Wednesday morning. Now most people have to go to work, so I sent out the word, and one SCC member, Jerry, and his Herbie was able to get there. So was “poor Jerry” all by himself with his lone star car, surrounded by CHP? Uh, no.
Who’s that behind Herbie? Look Familar? That’s Eric Estrada from the TV show Chips.
Here he is again, hugging some guy, who he seems to know pretty well. He had just arrived on a motorcycle.
Yep, it’s Larry Wilcox, his on screen partner, on a 80’s style CHIPS bike owned by Barry! (Who brought a set of his classic police cars too!)
That’s pretty cool, right? But wait, look who Jerry parked his Tuxedo Herbie next to!
Yep, the ONE star car I have been hunting for years, sat in when it went up for sale, pulls up and parks next to Herbie! The A-Team van!
So officially, they are on the team, now that I know they take the car our for events!
So that’s pretty cool too! Now if there were only a few other star cars…..
You might have spotted Bumblebee from Transformers in the photo with Eric Estrada greeting Larry Wilcox, oh, and that one of a kind Silver Concept Corvette behind BB is also a Transformer.
The only Transformer star bigger than Bumble Bee would be Optimus prime. Too bad he didn’t show…. oh wait!
Toss in the Govenator, a few other celebrities and VIP’s and you have a pretty cool event! I guess we should have taken the day off.
