Cruising for a Cure 2009 Nate Truman & Charger Steve Movie and TV star car pals unite!

Bomber%20girl2Another 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….
Photobucket
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!
Photobucket
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!
Photobucket
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!

New Star Car Record! 12

Star Car Association - Batmobile, Herbie, Starsky and Hutch, Delorean and more

star car central

Actually, we had 14, but two of the new Bullit Mustangs had to leave before the photo shoot!  Lou, our “Starsky and Hutch” Torino owner, is mainly responsible for the success of this event, because he offered his house and a great BBQ meal to lure the star cars out of their garages.   We started the day with a car show that benefited the Girls Basketball team, and it was worth it (even worth the bad sunburn I got and am still recovering from) because not only did we have a great turn out of Star Cars, but we found four more at the show with a few leads to new members!

Cars in attendance were:  Starsky and Hutch Torino, Rod Riguez Custom, Back to the Future Delorean, Magnum P.I. Ferrari, Batmobile, not one, not two, but THREE Herbies, the ever popular Star Wars car, and the premier of Charger Steve’s new Smokey and the Bandit Trans am!  Then a beautiful Elenor from Gone in 60 seconds pulls in, and I invited him to park with us and Chuck pulled right in with us!  What a beautiful car! You could eat off of his engine, that was one clean machine!  Once I got finished making sure all the Star Car members who said they were coming were in place (Glad you made it Jerry!) I started looking around, and found a nice Bullit replica, Jesus is putting together a nice car!  Then Dave pulled in with his car and parked with the team, his car has been on the cover of a magazine and he had just come from a Steve McQueen tribute show.   Then I noticed Charlie’s nice green fastback, but he was quick to point out several non “bullit” details on his car: different wheels, chrome was not removed etc.  but as I had been hunting to add a Bullit mustang for a while, to have three of them show up at one show was too much!  Also Jesus and Dave had to leave right after the show, so Charlie graciously pulled his car in for our group photo to represent the new addition!  Even though we have 4 General Lee cars in the group, none of them could make it (Bob tried!) so that was the only car missing from our original first meet (that’s the photo up top from the TV show shot at the magic castle.)

A great photo, great friends and stories, not too hot of a car show, and lots of new members and leads on new star cars, it couldn’t have been better!

Cars now in our sights, Dave said he knew of another Smokey and the bandit, Jason found a Dragula and the Joe Dirt car and we are tracking those down, and Mark (Adam-12) is working on a Squad 51 Emergency! truck!

We still have another 5 cars in the wings, that we will have to add to our next big get together, the black Beauty from the Green hornet, the Blues Brother’s police car (Blake was working at Universal…) The General Lee, tango and cash truck, Seans GhostbustersScooby Doo van (next time, Joe!) , Jason’s KITT from Knight Rider, Mad Max (we missed you Paul!) Gary’s Highway Patrol, Martin’s Christine, Duke’s Mustang… that’s my new goal, to get all of those guys for an even bigger toy collection!

FIREBALL STORY IN A CAR MAGAZINE?

Well, I actually got contacted to write the story for a magazine, but on the condition that I don’t post it or sell it anywhere else, so SORRY! Stay tuned, if it doesn’t pan out I will just post the rest here. Who’d a thunk it? The 1966 Batmobile will return!
Kinda weird!8o
