Transformers in Chatsworth? Herbie is an Autobot? Starcarcentral.com gang just can’t stay away!

Greetings star car fans, to the starcarcentral.com 2011 show season!  I have tried to give the month of January off to all the members to give them time to repair, replace, and restore their movie and TV star cars and just to have a month with no emails from me about a charity appearance or event! But do they listen? NOOOO!   They still go to parties, high school lunch car shows,  or out to support other member’s get togethers! What can I say? We like each other!

“Starsky and Hutch” Lou had an impromptu car show to support his high school teams, and sent out a quick email, and the star car guys lined up to help out! Nice turn out!

Lou must have gotten hungry, here he is headed off to the Burger King! (It’s also just a cool shot of his Starsky and Hutch Torino!)

Is this Alex’s KITT? Nate’s KITT? Nope, Knights of the West coast member Cesear showed up and showed off his Knight Rider Replicar!  I think you will be seeing lots of new cars this year as we gather around Southern California in 2011!

The biggest growing part of the SCC recently is the Transformer owners! Bumble Bee and Ratchet showed up with a smaller transformer in between at this show!

Jon’s Bumble bee and Jason’s Ratchet make a nice pair!

Jason and Alex have been working hard upgrading Ratchet inside and out, take a look at the new seat covers!

Heck, even Herbie the Love bug seems to have caught the Transformer FEVER!

Herbie got a little Transformer “ink” for this show, just to fit in!    Lots of the regulars were in attendance, Paul with his BTTF Delorean, Charlie with his Bullit Mustang, and Sue brought her Get smart sunbeam, and showed off her new boyfriend!

I think Herbie is jealous!

 

For several years the Star Car central gang have been gathering and dissapearing into the side streets like phantoms at events from San Diego to Bakersfield!   If you want to find out where we are going to be this year, I will be posting upcoming events on these blogs, so subscribe!  Our first official SCC events of the year (even though I think we have had about 5 all ready!) will be Feb 12 at Anaheim Stadium for Monster Jam Monster Truck show, in two weeks, then again at Dodger Stadium also with Monster Jam monster truck show.  Our cars will be on display in the preshow driver areas so come early for the autographs and star cars!  Then we will most likely do a lap before the big show inside the arena!      New member Steven B. will be at Dodger stadium with his Jurrasic Park Monster truck! First appearance with the SCC!     As I am always looking for new members, and the members are too, Jason found a guy at this Chatsworth show with the perfect starter car for the new version of KITT and the conversion is in progress!

Let’s get that red light installed pronto!

People ask me “How many star cars do you need to find, Nate?” and I have two answers – “Just one more” or “ALL OF THEM!”    Next up, BLACK BEAUTY stunt car inside and out!

LAPD hand out the toys, and StarCarCentral hands out the smiles!

We participate as a group in several Toy’s for Tots type car shows, but where do those toys go? They get handed out, rain or shine, to needy families!  This year they lined up in the pouring rain to have some fun sledding on trucked in snow, see some cool star cars and get toys!

Transform! Into a giant Umbrella!

December 18th from 5pm-9pm LAPD Pacific Station in West LA hosted their annual Xmas Toy give away “Winter Wonderland” for 3,000 low income kids and their families.  This year they had great sponsors such as Frito Lay, Nestle, StarcarCentral.com  etc. donating and providing treats for the kids.

The toys were all ready, and the people were lined up around the block, even in the rain!

Rain out side the tent, SNOW inside!

Three StarCarCentral.com members showed up to help make the event special, Paul with his Back to the Future Delorean, Jon with his Transformers Bumblebee, and Buckaroo with his Transfomer Ratchet van!

Normally the doors are open on the Delorean, but... it was a bit wet!

Paul and Jon ended the year at a party with their cars out front – bonus points to both of them for finishing out the year strong!    Now I promised all the SCC members some time off for repairs so January is OFF LIMITS so all the owners can repair, rest and recuperate until February for Monster Jam in a new location, Dodger stadium!   So I will be fixing KITT and the A-Team van, and scheduling NO events in January. Well, there is the grand national Roadster show in Pomona on the 28-30th, and I just learned of a special museum of cars that is only open on Friday Jan 7th….. soooooo

Have a safe New Years, and start making those resolutions! See you in 2011!

Pumpkin Festival 2010 Herbie, Bumble bee and Back to the Future Delorean represent starcarcentral.com!

The first time we tried to participate in the Pumpkin Festival in Calabassas, it was burned and blown away, so we went to Dennys!  The second time we had a BIG showing with TWO batmobiles and a Deathrace Mustang and it was sort of hot.  The next time it was TOO HOT and we all spent the day moving into the shade!  The fourth time was the charm, so we will have to have another one like the 2010 event in 2011!

Jon Paul and Ringo… I mean Jason representing Nate Truman’s Starcarcentral.com gang at this years Pumpkin Festival in Camarillo! This time the cars were in the thick of things, and it wasn’t so darn hot, or on fire!

Jon's Transformer Bumblebee

Of course everyone loves a good star car, and the younger fans know the Transformer movies the best! Seeing a transformer up close is always an exciting event!

Jason's car looks so much better, I am not sure what he added...

Jason’s car is always a big hit with the girl young and old…

And girls that are young at heart!

Paul and Reba give away their Fireball cards, they had a few left due to a printing error!  What kid doesn’t want a collector card?   All in all, it was a small but proud group of starcars and a good time was had by all.   It was Pumpkintastic!
