David Hasselhoff calls on StarCarCentral.com for an “instant” car show!


Who can refuse the “HOFF”?  Certainly not StarCarCentral!   Super fan and owner/builder of her own Super Pursuit Mode KITT Knight Rider Car, Jennifer got a call from David’s body guard, and he asked if star cars  could show up for an event that was close to David’s heart – an event for the retirement complex where the Hoff’s dad lives.

Well when you say “the Hoff will be there” that’s all Jenn needed! Star car connections were called in, and Nate (that’s me) Jenn and Charger Steve sent out the call! In record time the “instant car show” was born!

Jenn showed up with her KITT that was a hit with all the Knight Rider fans, Gary brought his Herbie The Love Bug,

Mike had Towmater,

John transformed his Bumblebee Camaro,

Mark scrambled his Adam-12 Patrol car

and Tony with the help of “snowman” got past the troopers in his Bandit Trans am!

To think that when I started starcarcentral, 4 star cars in one place was a huge event! Now 6 show up with just an email and the promise of free food!

David Haselhoff put on a great show and performed with his Dad who was obviously proud of his boy, and everyone enjoyed good food and drinks provided by the facility!

Awards were given out and even though Star Car Central usually asks to NOT get awards, when it’s the Hoff’s show, well, KITT has to win the “People’s Choice” Award! Congrats Jenn!

It was a fun day of food, entertainment, cool cars and the Hoff!  For star car fans, that’s just about as good as it gets!  I don’t need to congratulate Jenn for putting on a great fast and trouble free show, she got her reward – a day with the Hoff and a chance to get her dash signed, and most importantly the photo of him and her sitting on her hood!   KITT is even smiling!

KITT - "Hey, I can't see! Jennifer, is that Michael Knight?"

It wouldn’t be a star car event without at least one of the cars having some sort of trouble, but this time it made for a once of a lifetime event, a Bandit Trans am helping out a KITT trans am, or is it the other way around?  Star Cars showing some Pontiac love for each other!

That’s a different type of “jump” for both of these cars! This may be the only shot of Bandit and KITT “jumping” together!

Now you may be asking,  “Hey, Nate and Alex have KITT cars, and Paul goes to everything with his Back to the Future Delorean, where were they?”  Well you are right, we all would have been out to support Jenn and the Hoff, but we were at another three day show at the time, the Wizard World Comic Con in Anahiem with Adam West and Burt Ward and other cast members of the Batman show!  But that’s another blog….

Burbank on Parade StarCarCentral.com wins again!

Hey Star Car Fans!

Yes I know I am behind on my blogging! We are having too much fun playing with our toys lately to stop and write about it!  So let’s catch up a bit!  On April 9th, 2011 a BIG group of the ever changing line up of cars at Star Car Central.com showed up to drive in the Burbank Parade!  For the second time in a row, we won our category!  Novelty, Non Commercial!  Not sure if we had any competition, but we won!

We had a few new members, some Burbank locals that rarely come out and a bunch of the “regulars” all lined up once again for a fun parade on a beautiful day!

Our “Banner Girls” lead the way out in front with Sue in Her Get Smart Sunbeam and machine gun!  After a long wait on a beautiful tree lined street we finally got started and the crowd loved seeing all their old “four wheeled friends” from TV and movies from the past!

Here’s a nice shot of Sue with our award banner at the end of the parade!

Paul brought out his “MAD MAX” Interceptor for a rare look at his very rare replicar with right hand drive and meanest looking police car around!

New to our group this year is Stephen and his Jurassic Park Explorer! He is actually more into rock climbing than star cars, but his truck is a crowd pleaser!  We have yet to get Stephen and Ari together, who has a Jurassic park Jeep!

Transformers, assemble!  and then turn off your engines and wait for a bit longer!  John’s BumbleBee Camaro from Transformers is followed by Jason’s “Ratchet” Transformer ambulance from the cartoons! You can also see Tony’s top notch Smokey and the Bandit Trans am and Lou’s Torino from Starsky and Hutch bringing up the rear in the above photo.

Behind Tony is Nate Truman in his new “A-Team” van – this is the last shot of the van before the front push bar and even MORE front lights were added!  “I pity the fool” who doesn’t love Mr. T and his van!

Alex put on his light and sound show with his amazing KITT car from Knight Rider!

Cliff and his son are behind the wheel of their NASCAR inspired Herbie, like in “Herbie, fully loaded”

Oscar’s 308 GTSi Ferrari decked out like in the Magnum P.I. TV show is pretty at any angle!

Charlie brought his Green fastback Mustang like the one Steve McQueen drove in “Bullitt” the dream car of many men in the crowd!

Lou turned on his sirens and police lights and delighted all the “Starsky and Hutch” fans. His “stripped tomato” is a fan favorite!

Paul drove his Back to the Future Delorean with gull wing doors open, and  sounds from the movie blaring! Reba, get that leg back in the car!

Dave and his family tooted out the familiar sounds of “DIXIE” as they displayed their Dukes of Hazzard General Lee Charger!

A few times a year we are always happy to see “the other” batmobile! Tom’s car is sweet and he’s one of the few guys Nate has to chat with about after burners!

You are not seeing double, this is Jason’s “classic” Herbie as the lovable Bug appeared in the early movies! Jason also was running through the cars to get all these photos and did all the paperwork and phone calls so we could all play with our cars down the middle of the street!  Thanks Jason and “Dad” Dave!

Mark with his Adam-12 Cruiser gets extra “good guy” points for coming despite being in terrible pain! His “reward” for his troubles? He started overheating due to the slow speed of the parade! So he switched on his police lights and sirens and tore to the end of the parade to let the car cool down! Thanks for putting yourself through all that!   The crowd loved seeing the car tear down the street and I thought it was the “real” cops behind me – not the “REEL” ones!

I saved Brian’s car for last, as we all were amazed at his latest “upgrade” to his James Bond BMW from Tomorrow Never Dies.  He brought along a pal dressed as Super Spy James Bond, and he pretended to drive the car by remote control, just like in the movie.   No one can accuse Brian of wanting the spotlight, his friend was cool and collected walking down the road while Brian was well, it’s easier to just look at the photo!

Look closely, that seat has HANDS! That’s brian behind his seat disguise driving the car and looking through the headrest!  He truly suffered the heat and uncomfortable ride  to delight the parade goers! Too cool Brian, Aka “Q”!  We never know what gadget he’s going to build next!

True to form, after the parade my “cats” all scrambled off, some went home to get their “meds” others went to “in and out” but most of us made it to dinner to swap stories and catch up on the latest break downs and upgrades to our cars.

Ari couldn’t make it, and a new “mystery” batmobile almost made it in the parade with us but lost his keys to his electrical shut off switch – and by “lost” I mean a fan took the key!  But “G.I. Joe”mobile may be at an event soon!  Thanks to all who came and all the fans who yelled out each theme or show title as they recognized their favorite old car star!

KNIGHT RIDER FEST 3 Brings together fans of KITT and KARR in VEGAS, BABY!

There are fans of TV shows, and fans of the cool cars on the shows, then there are super fans who do something to bring a fan community together!  Paul Casey had a dream a few years back of getting rows of Knight Rider cars AKA KITTs  (Knight Industries Two Thousand) and KARRs (Knight Automated Roving Robot) as well as cast and crew all in one place for fans of the two Knight Rider Series to get to spend time together.   After many hours of detective work and many more hours of phone calls convincing people he was actually going to pull this fan based event together  it actually happened!     Now in it’s third year Paul has established an annual event for all things Knight Rider!

Owners from around the country, and even Canada and beyond have come with their replica and tribute cars to meet the stunt men, creators, and actors at the last three Knight Rider Festivals.  David Hasselhoff star of the first show has appeared, as well as Justin Bruener, the star of the more recent “Mustang” based Knight Rider show that followed the continuing adventures of the Foundation of Law and Government that the HOFF worked for in the 80’s.  One of my early jobs in Hollywood was being the voice of the KITT at Universal Studios and I joined the speaker panel at the first Festival. Since then representatives from Starcarcentral.com and Knights of the West Coast aka KOTWC have volunteered and brought their talents and cars to every Festival!   Dan, Alex, Nick, Jenn, Matthew, Glen, Nate and even Paul with his Back to the Future Delorean have appeared at the event as the Designer of KITT Michael Shiffe, also worked on the Delorean for the back to the future movies!

This year there were 16 kitts,  2 karrs, 6 mustang kitts (3 of them were the originals from the tv show). Of the 3 screen used kitts, 2 of them were from the pilot episode, the hero and attack mode, and the other one was the gimble kitt, the one that was at the on the rotating platform at the foundation base.

It took many people coming together to make this show a reality and everyone enjoyed getting to know the other owners and cast members and driving down the Las Vegas strip in a parade of 80’s Trans ams with their Knight Rider Red lights flashing!  So is Paul ready to do a fourth? He says “YOU BET!” so mark your calendars for Knight Rider Festival FOUR in February 2012!

SCC on TMZ at Comikaze Party! Rain, towtrucks and starcar crashes!

Last Friday night in the worst rain and traffic I have been a part of in years, three intreped StarCarCentral.com members braved the weather and conditions to support GAMERS UNITED.

Harvey Levin’s TMZ TV show had a camera crew at the Beverly Hills event for the first L.A. ComiKaze Comic Con party where three SCC members came to support the cause of the night, giving out comic books and video games to sick kids!  Michele Rodriguez was a celebrity guest and was really sweet to all three of us, she loved the cars!

Nate and Paul caught by TMZ

Jon Bumblebee, Paul BTTF, and Nate Knight Rider all braved the rain and REDONKULOUS traffic but all got there before the party and the rain started.  Various camera crews were on hand to cover the party thrown by Regina Carpinelli CEO Comikaze Expo and was held at her art gallery “The Celebrity Vault”  at 345 North Canon Drive Beverly Hills,Ca 90210 that specializes  in celebrity and rock and roll star limited edition photography.

A donation of comic books or cash and an invitation got you into the party, but there was only room for three stars outside: Bumblebee from the Transformers, Back to the future Delorean and KITT from Kinght Rider were parked out in the elements!   The buzz and photography around the cars was non stop through the night, but after a few turns in front of the camera we went next door and the three of us had a New York Style Pizza and caught up on a few stories!  After some more rain and a few more times lighting up KITT for the cameras I decided it was time to go home, as Monster Jam was the next day.  Kitt had other ideas!  It let out a terrible sound and the starter decided it didn’t want to play any more! So what does every good Knight Rider do in that situation? TURBOBOOST!!!!

"TURBO BOOST? I THOUGHT THAT WAS THE START BUTTON!"

Actually, I just called AAA and they sent out a tow truck to take KITT back to the Knight Industries repair truck.

Paul and Jon stayed a while longer while the paparazzi never stopped taking photos of KITT even while being loaded on the truck!

I got KITT safely home, dropped him in the driveway and got the A-Team van out for Monster Jam the next day.   (see previous blog!)

Sadly it was Paul’s turn next to have some bad star car incident, he made it fine to the Monster jam the next day, but on the drive home hit  a stalled truck in the road and tore up the side of his BTTF car!

When you play with your toys, stuff like this happens!  Luckily the F.L.A.G. mechanic was over on Monday (aka Alex!) and had a new starter in KITT in no time flat and we went out for a nice lunch all before noon!  That man has skills and connections! But I don’t think he can get Delorean stainless panels.

Here’s a look at Pauls car before the accident.   I am not sure I want to see what it looks like now! 😦

Paul vows to be all back together and rolling by our next event!  Many of your favorite star cars will be on display in November at www.comikazeexpo.com

TMZ was also at another SCC event but didn’t get any of the Knights of the West Coast on Camera on Valentines day.  A few fans of the Hoff showed up with Knight Rider stories for a new series where stars trade places with celebrities who have their same name!

David Hasselhoff looks different! (click the link to watch the TMZ video)

MONSTER JAM AND STARCARS AT DODGER STADIUM PREMIER!

Thanks to Charger Steve, Star Car Central Los Angeles and San Diego Chapters  have been part of the attraction at Monster Jam shows for the last four years. Most shows we drive  a parade lap inside the stadiums for the fans as part of the pre-show.  This year we appeared at three Monster Jam shows in San Diego, Anaheim Stadium and a first time ever at Dodger stadium with different members of the famous television and motion picture car group at each event.

Back in black! Bandit, KITT and the A-team van! I Pity the fool who don't like black star cars!

In the shadow of the famous Dodger Stadium we eventually lined up our cars, hoping the rain would pass over us and we could drive the infield of Dodger stadium!

Our first stop of the day was to gather in the nearby police academy parking lot, not just because it was close and a big open area to gather but also because it was a movie and TV location used many times. Most notably in the opening sequence of “Charlie’s Angels”

So in another instance of “Cross geeking” (tm nate truman 2003) Here’s a shot of Paul’s Back to the Future delorean under the Academy arch!

"1976 pilot shoot of Charlie's Angels! Where's Farrah?"

So we all parked in the historic lot until everyone arrived!

Then we all drove around the stadium, stopping to admire a few closed gates and lined up for the driver’s area display.

'NEW JURASSIC PARK EXPLORER! LOU, WATCH OUT! IT'S BIGGER THAN IT APPEARS IN YOUR SIDE MIRRORS!

We also welcomed Scott with his Jurassic park Explorer for the first time! Everyone agreed he was an easy addition to the SCC team!   Lou was a trooper and came all the way to the event, and after a call from his wife and a look up at the sky made a wise decision and went home! Little did we know what was in store for us!

Charger Steve led us in and lined us up, then lined us up again, then finally got us where he wanted us!

"Rain? What rain?"

Lou was the first to leave of the 15 cars that made it to the stadium. We lost about three cars in the days leading up to the show, and another three before the main event started! It was going to be 20 cars! Darn Rain!

Magnum P.I. Ferrari and Back to the Future Delorean, with Knight Rider bookends!

Jenn’s SPM Kitt lead the display, Paul’s Delorean, Oscar’s Magnum P.I. 308 GTSi Ferrari followed by Alex’s KITT at the start of the row of movie and TV cars. Before the big show started, Oscar and Alex had headed for cover with their cars due to leaks! Thanks for staying for the fans as long as you did!

Herbie the Love bug, Star wars, and James Bond?

Obishawn and Yoda made a mad dash for cover, but Cliff and Justice in their Nascar Herbie and Brian in his James Bond BMW stayed for the show!  (We did have a nice tent city to keep us dry during the worst of it thanks to Mater Mike!)

Next up was the Blues Brothers 2000 police car, and Tony’s perfect Smokey and the Bandit trans am! He even had the T-Tops off for a while!  Tony’s bandit is spot on, even down to the Coors boxes!

This was the first SCC event for Scott and his dad Norm with their Jurassic park Explorer.  We have to get Ari and his Jurassic park jeep together at a future event!

What's that Orange car next to the A-Team van? It should have a sign.

Down at the far end of the display was Jon’s Bumblebee, some orange car Steve brought ( he’s working on a sign so people know what show it’s from. It was a spin off from Smokey and the bandit I think…) and the A-Team van!

Charger Steve's General Lee, and Mr. T's A-team van! (Mr. Truman, that is!)

Due to the rain, most of the owners and drivers of the Star CarCentral.com cars stayed under cover and enjoyed great food and stories in a near by tent city, but the crowds still flocked to the cars to see their favorite movie and TV cars!

Not even pouring rain could keep the fans away from the famous cars!

Towmater and the A-Team, and some contructobot transformers at Starcarcentral.com HQ!

Bringing up the other end of the display was Mike’s Towmater tribute tow truck and Nate’s A-Team van!  Those darn constructobots always are photobombing . They act more like decepticons than Autobots!

Even though the rain thinned the group throughout the day, hats off to all who came! Otherwise we would never have this cool shot of the rain storm with starcars at dodger stadium!

Next up, KITT turboboosts into the Knight Rider repair truck, and Back to the Future has a run in on the freeway on the way home….

2010 Camarillo Christmas Parade brings out the STAR cars!


You may have seen a police car in your rear view mirror at some point, but I think this is the first time Herbie the Love bug has almost been pulled over by Starsky and Hutch!

Once again Nate Truman’s StarCarCentral.com gang gathered to participate in the Camarillo Christmas parade! We were almost rained out last time, but this time it was practically a trouble free event!

We all lined up in the morning and most everyone found the starting line, Alex and Oscar decided to go to the end of the parade first! Eventually we were all in place ready to start the parade! Sue even came with out her Get Smart Sunbeam to support the SCC! She got to ride in Bumblebee for her efforts!

Alex and Oscar finally found the right end of the parade, and all was fine, until we started up the cars to get moving down the street!  I looked back and saw Lou’s hood of his Starsky and Hutch Torino up, and Alex getting out some jumper cables!

Is Kitt Jumping Starsky and Hutch, or the other way around?

Another first for the day, we have all had to get a jump to start a car at some point, but have you ever seen KITT from Knight Rider and the Torino from Starsky and Hutch helping each other out?

I assumed Lou’s car needed a jump, I went back to check and heard it running, so ran back to my A-Team van as the parade was moving!

With Lou’s car up and running, Jason kept snapping photos, and found a few Cheerleaders who wanted a shot with John’s Bumblebee Camaro!  I think Bumblebee is smiling!

StarCars, Let's ROLL! Alex? ALEX?!?!

So we got the signal to start rolling, and we all start moving out, except Alex in his KITT from Knight Rider!  What? He never, NEVER breaks down.  Alex is always over prepared!  Should we leave KITT and take Alex? Leave Alex behind? Where’s Devon and Bonnie and the big Knight Rider Truck when you need them?

STARCARCENTRAL.COM ROLL OUT!

So the parade moves out, and so do we! Luckily the parade wasn’t moving too fast!  We inched forward, and while we waited to join the main parade, Alex had a talk with KITT and convinced him it would be good to start at this time.  KITT agreed, and joined the line up at the last minute!

Starsky and Hutch being followed by the A-Team?

Everyone lined up based on the age of the show they were from, oldest to newest!

"I love it when a VAN comes together!"

Herbie led the group today,  as the theme was “Christmas through the Decades”!  Even though The Love Bug has been in movies and TV shows spanning 50 years, the first movie  was from the 60’s so Jason was up first!

Herbie Rocks!

We could have had the Batmobile for the 60’s too, but I needed more seats for my kids “aka” Banner holders- so I brought my A-Team van instead!  The 70’s was all Starsky and Hutch,

No ticket for Herbie today! It's Lou!

and the 80’s were represented by The A-Team van, KITT, and Magnum P.I.

Is that Tom Selleck taking a photo of a guy taking a photo?

And bringing up the 2000’s was Bumble Bee from the Transformer movies!

As each car drives by, its fun to watch the faces light up as they recognize some old friends!  Each car has its fans, some people get it wrong (pointing at KITT) “It’s the Batcar!”  and the littlest kids stare blankly at all of us, then point to the end and scream “BUMBLEBEE!  Mom’s it’s bumblebee!”

Magnum P.I. and the A-Team working together? "I pity the fool they are after!"

It’s always fun to bring smiles to fans of our cars and it’s also fun to get together afterward and swap stories too!  A fun Christmas get together at a secret location where another starcar lies in wait to rise from the ashes, and a trip to see the long awaited Black Beauty near by topped off a fun star car day!

Next up, The BLACK BEAUTY!

Bonus MERRY CHRISTMAS PHOTO! WHERE’S JERRY BEEN LATELY?

HE’S BEEN HANGING WITH A DIFFERENT SHORTER CROWD FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON!

"HO, HO, HO? SANTA IS A SCC MEMBER!"

The Batmobile to Bumblebee gather to meet up with Claudia Wells and John Schneider!

We're on a mission from God! Crossgeeking overkill!

When it comes to famous movie and TV car get togethers, we never know what to expect!  At our last showing of 20 cars John Schneider, star of “Dukes of Hazzard” and “Smallville” stopped by and at the same time, Claudia Wells star of “Back to the Future” and who also appeared on “The Love Bug” TV series also stopped by, and the cameras all came out for some fun “crossgeeking” (tm Nate Truman)

Crossgeeking is when two geeky hobbies or pursuits collide, like the star of “Dukes of Hazzard” posing with the Blues Brothers!  Not to be confused with geekswapping, where fans exchange non matching fan paraphernalia. Such as  “I’ll give you a Batmobile for that Boba Fett doll”

That doesn't look like Mr. T or Howling Mad Murdock!

The A-team Van is waiting on it’s front Grill guard, but that didn’t stop the fans from wanting to jump in and shout “I pity the fool!”  I love it when a VAN comes together!

Smokey and The Bandit trans am, apparently it DOES make me better looking!

The first LA appearance of Tony’s newly restored Smokey and the bandit Trans am.  This car is better than brand new, and was a hit with the fans!

Starcars, ASSEMBLE!  We circled the team and even in spite of the rain outside, we had a great time swapping stories and photos with the fans and celebrities attending the show.

John Schneider as always is so down to earth and as his General Lee appeared in the Car and Driver article with Starcarcentral.com it was nice to see him again as part of the SCC gang!  It was nice to see he didn’t care he came in second to my Batmobile!

Jurassic Park: The Duke's go hunting!

Claudia Wells and John Schneider had fun posing in all of the cars, once we handed them some props, they were ready to start making sequels!

While the girls from Extreme Green weren’t helping with the fans, they spent their time making our cars look even better!

Luis was smart enough to stay with his Punisher Car.  I think Luis stopped breathing!

Well we had 20 cars and lots of crazy moments! So much so that there are too many photos of cars and stars than I can ever put in a blog!    Charger Steve’s Scooby Doo van, Alex and his Kitt, Jenn’s SPM KITT the bumblebees (yes, we had two and they met and chatted with the voice actor for Bumblebee!) and Buckaroo’s ratchet transformer medical van, Lou’s great starsky car, Pauls’ BTTF Delorean, Josephs General Lee, Oscar’s Magnum P.I. Ferrari, Brian’s Herbie the Love bug, and the Extreme Green Team and on and on!     We didn’t break our own  records, but had a great time and most everyone had a great meal afterward!  Thanks to Frank and Sons for a great opportunity for a rare indoor show!  Special thanks to Jay and Peter and Paul and the whole Extreme Green team that were a big help all day long!

OK, one more photo! Alex brought is printer, he had someone take this photo, then printed it out for Claudia Wells to sign the same day!  As the Joker says “Where does he get those wonderful toys?”

StarCarCentral.com supports the Autism Walk 2010 Anaheim Stadium

The 2010 Walk Now for Autism was held at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. More than 9,000 people attend the event which had 60 booths, huge kidszone with several Star Cars from Nate Truman’s StarCarCentral.com, Autism Speaks ambulance, Star Wars characters from the 501st cosplay group and a 5 K walk all to raise funds to help those affected with Autism.

The event raised money to benefit autism research.

Diane Vitto, executive chairwoman for the event, said that more than $330,000 was raised, but they expect that number to go higher.

Lots of people turned out for the event, but this time no one brought a camera!

StarCarCentral.com was proud to be one of many supporters and everyone enjoyed the star cars on display!

If you spot a photo of the starcars at this event, let me know!   Or if you see one of THESE people standing next to a famous car, that would be us!  So, how many SCC members can you cram into a photobooth? Extra points for finding Howdy Doody!
