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!)

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!

Ability First Star Car Central red carpet event!

It happened on Friday May 1st, but here’s the post now! AbilityFirst provides programs and services to help children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities reach their full potential throughout their lives. They offer a broad range of employment, recreational and socialization programs.

Last year was Star car Central’s first time participating in the Red Carpet Oscar like event, and it was such fun we brought a different group back for the second year!

Mark G and his Adam-12 cruiser showed up, and then got a call to fix a helicopter, so he got himself moved up in the line up, and delivered Jim Carrey (does he seem a bit too tall?) to the red carpet area where Joan Rivers was greeting all the ariving stars.

Mark G's Adam 12 meets Jim Carrey look alike

Mark G's Adam 12 meets Jim Carrey look alike! Mark ran the red carpet, then ran to keep the police in the air! Always on call, his job is to keep them flying!

“One Adam-12  see the woman dressed like Joan Rivers, use caution, she is armed with a sharp wit. that is all.”

(In a side note, I am trying to locate an “ACE VENTURA” car for the Jim Carrey Impersonator… we shall see…)

Scott Sebring is in the Batman costume, with his Wife Vicky together they were a big hit with the “consumers” and all the attenders

of the event!

Check out the “circe” reflective red paint on Tom’s car!  Cool!

Just so no one is confused, that is TOM driving HIS batmobile, no I didn’t let someone else drive my bat. So don’t ask. 🙂 Don’t ask Tom either.

Sue and Get Smart and Lucy Ball?

Sue and Get Smart and Lucy Ball?

Sue brought her Get Smart Sunbeam with working machine gun in the hood, along with a great Get Smart Look-A-Like

and were teamed up with a  “I Love Lucy” impersonator.  Maxwell Smart entertained the crowd with his Shoe Phone!

Were’s Obiwan?  See if you can find all the odd combinations in one photo, Batman, Obiwan, Get Smart Car,
Herbie the Love bug, and Catwoman!
Where's Waldo?

YEAH BABY!

YEAH BABY!

We met a new friend at the event, a GREAT Austin Power’s impersonator, who connected us with
a SHAGUAR!  Look for the british flag on a jag at future events!  (Now find KITT from Knight rider,
the batmobile, and get smart and shrek in that photo!
Austin Power's "Shaguar" Yeah Baby!

There’s Tom!  he went early, then took off when it started to rain!  I know the feeling, batman goes out when it’s cool, dark and dry….
The bat was a big hit!

The Batmobile, KITT, Get Smart, Herbie, Star Wars H-wing, but Adam-12 had to answer the call before I got there to take any photos!

Austin in the Love big, that makes sense!

Jerry was our “Herbie” Owner this year, and he got to deliver Austin Powers to the center stage.

O.K. so Steven Spielburg had nothing to do with knight rider, but the car has a kind of a “shark” nose, so they played

the theme to Knight Rider, and JAWS!

Brian walks with the stars!

Brian brought his nephew and rode in a Limo this time, instead of in Herbie or Horace the Hate bug.

 So why all this fuss, and driving in the rain through traffic on a Friday night?

For the smiles!

For the smiles!

this last photo says it all!  It was a big night for all of us, but the smiles on the faces of all those attending and helping when they saw

the famous cars and impersonators was worth any and all trouble it was to be apart of this big event!  See you next year!

NATE AT THE OSCARS!

oscar-and-me-2.jpgNate on the Red Carpet!Nate on the Red Carpet!

Well lots of Cars, lots of Stars, but no STAR CARS, still it’s the OSCARS and I figured it was worth a post!

I worked with the crew from the United Kingdom for SKY1 coverage of the event, great group of folks!

It was great seeing a lot of my old pals in the freelance TV world again, after spending 25 years in Television production on over 100 shows and events I was bumping into old friends and distant memories of shows I have worked on all day!      I was suprised to find that I remembered my way around so well, since the last show I did there was season one of American Idol!    The red carpet was damp, and there was one cool vehicle there, the bomb squad van!

Sure Clooney was there, and all the rest, but this year the only nominated movie I have seen was “Ratatouie” on DVD!   Security was tight but well done.  Walking the red carpet was fun, posing with Oscar, and good friends as well as “gettin paiyed” made for a fun time!
