May 21st was the City of Monterey Park’s “Play Day Parade and Carnival”. Lots of marching bands a marching, drill teams a drilling and horses a pooping and a call went out to Nate Truman’s StarCarCentral.com group to show up and Rock the HOUSE!
‘KITT! TURBOBOOST, QUICK!!!”
KITT may be impervious to harm, but he was still seen navigating around horse manure! Lot of fun in the sun and cool covered parking for the Star Cars of the day. This new Star Car Central event was organized and coordinated by “Starcarcentraloid” Jason “Buckaroo” Ybarra (Transformer Ratchet). Jason did a great job in putting a group together for this event in a very short time. A special thanks goes out to Jon Merker (Bumble Bee Transformer) for providing the Stanchions and for being the only guy tall enough to plug our electrical cords in the outlet that was located approx. eight feet high.
Star Car Central, ROLL OUT!
A big bunch of Star Car Central rolled out for the Montery Park Parade this year! ROLL CALL: Here was the line up! Jason (Ratchet Transformer van), jon (Bumblebee Camaro),alex (KITT from Knight Rider) with his boy “Will I Am”,Oscar (Magnum P.I. Ferrari)
Tony (Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am) , Paul “The Banner Boy Guy” and Reba “Clara” Parkinson (Back to the Future Delorean). We all met at Mcdonalds then cruised to the parade route. At the main booth they announced the driver and the cars over the loudspeaker. From there we ended up at the park where the carnival was going on. David Barron, the Monterey park city clerk ( Jason’s former neighbor) set the gang up with a nice place to display our cars, treated all of us to shakeys pizza and drinks. We were even announced durring the awards ceremony and star car central.Com won a 1st place trophy!
The Autobots were taking charge!
It was a stop and go parade, mostly marching bands and drill teams. High light for Oscar and his Magnum Ferrari was when he was announced as the Hawaii 5-0 car when he pass the grand stands! NICEEE. Kids today, they need to watch more classic TV!
Oscar also coined a new term, “starcarcentraloids” we shall see if it sticks! Everyone had a great time, except Nate, who wasn’t there. Next, other events Nate didn’t go to.
🙂 But soon, I will be back on the road with my gang of cool dude and dudettes in the sweetest rides ever seen on screen!~ Thanks to Jason for a quick parade! Great job guys!
