STAR CAR NEWS FROM AROUND THE USA AND THE WORLD! GO TEAM SCC! (THAT’S STAR CAR CENTRAL!)

Starcar fans are all around the world, and starcarcentral.com is trying to keep up with all of our members and chapters so you can find the famous movie and TV car events near you!

One of the most active groups outside of Nate Truman’s  Hollywood division is run by Dee up in the upper left corner of the USA!  He has even started a “starcar Concourse”.  After searching for star cars all over the U.S. Dee and Nate found several owners and they all started hanging out together up north!  So heres the info on their upcoming event!

Its time for the big 5th Annual ‘Star Car Concourse Classic” show at the Americas Car Museum.

The show is always the last Saturday in August, this year the 27th, and is held at the LeMay Museum’s Marymount location in the Tacoma/Spanaway area. This will be a ‘sanctioned’ AMCA event, hosted by the International Movie & TV Vehicle Owners Association and madmaxcars.com. The larger event, the LeMay/Americas Car Museum’s “Openhouse” that we are featured at, is a VERY COOL annual event even if it were not for the moviecars contribution, so it is well worth the trip. You can find the basic details on our events page here: http://www.madmaxcars.com/events.shtml

Then out in the middle of the USA Michael Knight has a great group that is now doing Comic cons and features one of the two original Monkeemobiles!  Here’s a few shots of them sharing the star cars with fans of all shapes and sizes at a recent con!

"Robin, you seem.... Different?"

Original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson showed up to see and sign the Ghostbuster tribute car (Hey, before you point out it’s not the right body style, not everyone can find a 1959 Mercury Meteor Ambulance, ok? )

Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson and SCC chapter leader Mike Knight!

Everyone had a great time chatting up Ernie about his time as a ghostbuster, and he even signed their car!

"To StarCarCentral.com, thanks for the cool car... what? I don't get to keep it?"

Like I mentioned before, They also have one of the two Monkeemobiles from the old TV series, and it showed up at a live Monkee show!

Well what did you expect them to be rolling in?

Meanwhile, over in Europe, France specifically, Claude has been hosting a great star car get together each year, and it keeps getting bigger each time!

And an article in the french mag “La Vie de l’Auto” The N°1 for the collectors in France! 🙂

Thanks to guys like Michael, Dee, and Claude – fan boys and girls around the US and the world have opportunities to see and get up close to their favorite movie and TV cars!

Where ever there are two or more starcars gathered in the SCC name, you are sure to have a party with some fun loving people!  So to all those who are lovers of cool creations for the screen,

thanks for being part of the star car movement in your neck of the woods!  TO THE BATMOBILE! Transformers, ROLL OUT!   If you see a star car, or better yet, a bunch of them together,

Make sure you say “HI” and tell them you saw them here first!

Long Beach ComicCon StarCarCentral.com welcomed the fans! Cosplay and starcars, it’s a crossgeeking extravaganza!

Our second time with the Long Beach Comic Con, and we had an all new car line up!  Oscar for some reason got a shot of this superheroine with his Magnum P.I. Ferrari, I don’t understand the connection, Oscar?

Jon “Bumblebee” pulled out all the stops for the fans in his full on Transformer outfit, and was photographed more times than Lindsay Lohan coming out of Rehab!

Obi_Shawns starwars car was a hit as always! Here’s some of the line up outside the main entrance! Starwars next to Magnum P.I. next to Lou’s Starsky and Hutch next to transformer’s Bumblebee! We are by definition cross- geekers in the SCC! (Crossgeeking, TM Nate Truman the combination of two geeky pursuits enjoyed by the same person- please tell webster to add my word to the next edition!)

Here’s a perfect example. Oscar loves Magnum P.I. and he likes sexy women.  I mean Star Trek cosplay.  🙂

Down at the start of the lineup we had Alex and Jenn’s Knight Rider KITT cars. Who doesn’t love KITT?

Oscar met up with the 501st for a group photo, now that’s some serious muscle to protect his Ferrari!

Special Guest appearance by Bryan Fear and his pal driving the  Ghostbuster Ecto-1 car, they were on several missions that day, but stopped to drop off a costume for a friend, and said “hey” to the SCC guys from the street!  A ghostbuster’s work is never done!  Great to see the Ecto driving down the road!

A good time was had by all, and the weather was just great!   I think we will be back to support the Long Beach comic con next time!

Don’t forget, we are at Frank n sons this saturday, rain or shine! But if it DOES POUR,  Get smart will have to take a rain check! (I will have Bruce Wayne deliver the Batmobile no matter what!)

http://www.frankandsonshow.net/specevents.html

Come meet the guys, we will have 20 cars under one roof! So even if it rains, we will be inside in the middle of the event! Get your photo with your favorite star car! Meet the owners!  Participate in “Geekswapping” (TM 2003 Nate Truman “trading collectibles with others, of totally different geeky hobbies.”  eg. “I will give you a death star lego set, for that 1:18 scale fireball run Batmobile…..”

Next blog the SCC shows up for Downs Syndrome walk, and Autism!

Once again I am playing catch up so stay tuned, starcarfan!

Original Ghostbuster and Ecto-1 attend art about Gremlins, Ghostbusters and Goonies!

Our Ghostbuster Sean is on his second Ecto-1, and his first went to starcar owner Bryan Fear! He and Sean and a bunch of other ghosties all had to go and support an art show dedicated to Ghostbusters, Gremlins and Goonies! When you add one of the original Ghostbusters Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore) then you know the fanboys will show up in numbers!

Since their first art gallery show / event last April 3rd (2009) in Philadelphia, the Illustration collective known as the Autumn Society (directed by Illustrator & Designer, CHOGRIN, a.k.a Joseph Game), has made tremendous leaps, landing them to September 3rd (2010) LA, in an art show called, The 3G SHOW.

The Autumn Society & Gallery 1988 proudly present the teaser trailer to the premiere of the 3G show, an art show in tribute to the movies: Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins. Three movies that defined the 80’s (our) generation.

And if that’s not epic enough, how about throwing in one of the original Ghostbusters to appear at the event? That’s right, Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore) appeared at the event in the Ecto-1 along with Chogrin (Illustrator & President of the Autumn Society) and San Diego Ghostbusters: Bryan Fear, Eric Eseke, & Sean Bishop. Michael C. Gross (producer of Ghostbusters), Seth Green, and Robin Shelby (Slimer in Ghostbusters 2) also made an appearance and supported the event. Simply put, it was a night of epic proportions. Unforgettable!

Watch the teaser clip of the premiere

Also please find attached a few pictures from the event (Photos by Rich Collado & Rosario Ruiz). For more pictures of the event, keep checking our FLICKR site all this week.

A Special THANK-YOU to Bryan Fear, Eric Eseke, and Sean Bishop for their support, enthusiasm, and for providing the Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 and the DeLorean from Back to the Future. Also, thank-you to all the Southern California Ghostbusters who came out to the event!

ABOUT THE 3G SHOW

This is by far the Autumn Society’s biggest art show yet. In collaboration with Gallery 1988 (LA), the 3G Show is a Pop-Culture extravaganza, consisting of 3 art tributes (per Illustrator) to the 80’s trifecta that is: Ghostbusters, Goonies, and Gremlins! 3 movies that defined the 80’s (our) generation. View art, news coverage, and more about the 3G show at the Autumn Society Blog here:

http://www.theautumnsociety.com/search/label/3G%20show

The show was personally curated by the Autumn Society’s President, Chogrin (a.k.a Joseph Game) due to his love for Ghostbusters and 80’s pop-culture. The show wouldn’t of been possible without the help of Jensen Karp and Katie Cromwell who invited Chogrin and the Autumn Society (about a year ago) to show at Gallery 1988.

Besides just 80’s nostalgia, these movies had something special about them. That’s why we keep seeing echoes of them today. And through these echoes we hope people will listen and see a spark is still there and that we want to see more of these franchises & movies in theaters again.

You can purchase original pieces & prints from the show directly at Gallery 1988 or at their online store via the links below:
