Another great gathering of star cars from movie and TV were on display for the 2009 crusing for a cure car show last weekend.
To support Prostate Cancer research, and to get lots of guys tested (including a few from our group this time!) we all got in our star cars and drove to the Orange County fairgrounds for the USA’s largest one day car show event.
Charger Steve came from San Diego with his first time BTTF Delorian conversion patterened after the first movie,
and Steve brought a long a few new SD pals, Lee – who bought his General Lee,
Mike with his “Tow Mater” tow truck,
and then a nice pile of the Hollywood Star cars fron StarCarCentral.com!
Alex was kind enough to go the extra miles and drop “hoff” his KITT right next to Brian’s Horace the Hate bug! Back in Black, BABY!
We all kept an eye on Jennifer who was well behaved with the remote controls, and polished KITT properly all day! See Alex? That’s me videotaping her from the other side, so you can review her polishing style later and give her a report on how she did!
Brian upped his display with a new dvd loop of Horace in the movie, and a cool targeting scanner and pistol grip for shooting a certain white VW!
Jerry brought his Herbie for a nice set of “marshmellows” one fresh, one burnt!
Lou and Lynda got V.I.P. parking in a solo spot across from the rest of us….
and rounding out the star cars is the NOT a Barris Batmobile – world famous Fireball Run afterburning Natemobile!
I resurected the sign from the world con, (after finding it behind some stuff in my garage….) OK so I guess I could work on my display….
As usual, lots of people and fans were happy to see their favorite cars!
As it was a LOT COOLER this year, we actually did take a lap, but without Jennifer’s puppydog urging, we might not have! We finally got in our cars, fired them up and took off!!!!… at zero to 2 miles an hour!
To keep up the tradition, we drove past Barris’ booth again, and he wasn’t there, but we got a fun shout out from the Barris workers and Joji!
The Bat and Towmater moved over to the other side with Lou and let the world cool down a bit (and the cars!)
Our little “herd of cats” wandered too and fro, I had lunch with Lou and Lynda and Jason (Free refils! Next year I am there early!)
Jerry and his pal and Brian talked Herbies, then Brian smiled ear to ear when he got to trigger KITT for a while, until Alex’s internal sensors picked up that Jennifer and Brian were playing with the remotes too much, and an Automated text was sent to get them in line!
BULLIT owner Dave Kunz parked with us for a spell, but he’s got too many car shows to cover as a reporter, so he popped in and it was great hearing his stories and then he was off to the next event!
As long as we get these parking spots, I think there will be some cool star cars at Crusin for a cure 2010 and beyond!
