Greetings, starcar fan!
As my time to write up articles about famous movie and TV cars has been trunkated by new projects, here at least is what’s been going on around SCC the past month or so!
Fireball Tim -movie and TV car designer and pal to the SCC has been doing fun short videos over on his site and working his way through the SCC line up!
Chuck aka “Rod Riguez” is the latest captured on camera with Fireball!
before that both Jerry with his Herbie, and Lou with his Starsky and Hutch Torino took Tim for a spin as well!
This last weekend a few SCC members headed out to the Pumpkin Festival in Calabassas and had a great time with the Great Pumpkin!
A few of the “southern” SCC guys did a mid week event at the Temecula Valley International Film Festival and dropped off the movie makers and stars to the red carpet in September GARY with his KITT from Knight Rider, TONY and his SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT Trans Am along with JERRY and his HERBIE.
Our annual appearance at the South Pasadena Police and Fire Open house was a big gathering and lots of fun as well!
The “HERBIE’S” took a road trip finding many of the filming locations from their “Love Bug” movies ending up at where else? Disneyland!
Then Ten star cars were on display at “Crusin for a Cure” to help find a cure for Prostate Cancer – A surprise visit from a new Green Hornet from San Diego area was a highlight!
(Photos you ask? Well, my computer crashed and guess what went with it?) I did meet up with a new star car pal,
with his Frese -McQueen – He works at Disney so no copyright infringement is implied. How about “Thunder-McQueen?” (Copyright Nate Truman 2011)
Then the 10-4 day parade down hollywood blvd had Adam-12 and Robocop along with the Batmobile with lights and sirens blaring to honor policemen and women both real and “REEL”
Here’s a fan video from up above, of the police cars followed by THE BATMOBILE! “That is not Batman and Robin!” 🙂 you are correct, we are wasting gas and having fun with our old cars. 🙂
A group display showed up at the Route 66 9/11 event and tribute up in the Northern part of Los Angeles as well!
Then a visit with the cast of the 1966 Batman televisions series, a meeting with Doc Savage aka Tarzan, aka Ron Ely –
and a get together with Rex Smith star of “Streethawk” in an effort to build him a Streethawk bike mold so he can get back on
his TV star car. (Anyone have any info on the whereabouts of the Streethawk bikes? Also looking for a 80’s Reb Brown Capt. America Bike, and a Battlestar Galactica 1980 Bike and Helmet set!)
Next up is the Harmony Car show! If you want to stop by and see the SCC up close and in person, here’s your next event.
