Thanks to Shawn we got a last minute call for some star cars for the Long Beach Comic con at the Long Beach Convention center, and even under the threat of rain, 4 of us managed to get there! Shawn and his Honda x wing, Paul and Reba and their collection of tables and chairs and tents, Oscar and his Magnum PI Ferrari, and of course me, Nate Truman with my KITT from Knight Rider. (No batmobile, when it rains, batman gets wet!)
It was a bit windy, but it was great having a small group so we had time to chat and even eat out together!
Oscar was there with his Ferrari, and both of them were thinking “Shawn and Nate set this up, where are they?”
Next Obi Shawn shows with his Honda H-wing fighter and yoda.
Hey guys, you’re blocking the car! You know how Shawn hates that….
Anyway, because the star wars 501st was there, and some sort of MardiGras party near by, we meet some interesting characters during the day!
The supergirl from our 4th of july showed up as Harley Quin, so I had to get a shot with my “DC” buddies
Some costumes took a lot of balls to wear out in public!
Here’s Reba with, uh, Turtle boy and Pirate guy!
We all agreed that this girl looked MUCH better with Oscar’s Ferrari than Tom Selleck.
We had a great time, met a lot of fans, and big story of the day, Oscar finally got that autograph of that famous star car driver from the Fireball run!
No, not me….
We had a great time, and made araingments to be back for the much bigger show in October, so this Halloween, come to long beach comic expo and say “hey!” We will have a lot more cars for that show!
To the batmobile! Next up… Knight Rider Festival in Vegas, HighSpeed Magazine shoot and the batmobile at the B and M show in Chatsworth? (“Bat and Man) that’s the shifter I have in the car! 21st…
