South Pasadena Police Expo where the Blue Brothers and Mayberry Join Batman!

Thanks to Officer Richard Lee of the So. Pasadena Police, the StarCarCentral.com gang showed up in force for the South Pasadena police and fire open house and car show Sunday Sept 20th!

It’s a different line up at evert star car show, and this one was no different! As Officer Lee has shown us great hospitality in years past, the guys were eager to shine up their famous movie and TV cars to sponsor this event.
Photobucket
No it’s not a decepticon transformer (that got sold to some collector in Texas) just the new cool police cars that opened the event!
Photobucket
PULL OVER!! Not quite as intimidating, but I want one of these for the back lot! They look like a lot of fun, and a step in the right direction for those personal hovercrafts I was promised in Popular Science like they had on Johnny Quest!
But I digress….
Photobucket
From left to right, here’s who was there! These two just have to be parked together! Lou and Lynda with her lemon squares (and the stripped tomato, from Starsky and Hutch!) were first in line, and next we were so happy to have Dave with his General show up with his family and support the police and fire dept. His car was cleaner than I ever saw the dukes car on TV!
Charger Steve and Dave got to swap General Lee trivia…. I mean important details on their cars!
Photobucket
Sue brought her Get Smart Sunbeam. Her “Max” didn’t seem to mind the sun, and posed for photos all day in a three piece suit!
Photobucket
Brian brought his Bond car complete with a new poster featuring his car! He got to talk obscure star car with a few of our fans, including one who is working on the CHiP’s Gold Firebird (Paunch’s car) and he may find a Simon and Simon Power Wagon….
Photobucket
Jerry’s Herbie is always well loved and photographed, and this was no exception. He had some sort of double cheeseburger creation that looked amazing for lunch, thanks again to the SPPD for feeding all of us so well!
Jerry had a special visitor, the star of Herbie goes to Monte Carlo Joaquin Garay III showed up and posed for a photo!
Photobucket
Photobucket
Next was Paul’s Back to the Future Delorian, and thanks to the electrical hook up, the center section of our display of famous movie and TV cars came alive! Paul put on a great show with lights, sounds and smoke, but this time he had competition!
Photobucket
Oscar plugged in his cd player, and had the theme to Magnum P.I. coming from under his Ferrari!
Next to him Alex and his pristine Knight Rider KITT was chatting with the crowd. “Where are your pants?” is still fun to hear KITT say randomly to someone!  Alex decided to take the day off from working on Knight Rider stuff and spend the day with us!   
Photobucket
Continuing the crime fighter line up, the batmobile quietly refrained from showing off, and let Batman, Wonder Woman, Batgirl and Robin do all the showboating for the happy photographers and fans!

Only at StarCarCentral.com events can you get this photograph! Nate Truman having a chat with batgirl, wonderwoman, Jason “Buckaroo” Red ranger, with a few unusual cars in the foreground!

A special treat just for the police theme was Brandy’s Mayberry RFD patrol car, and it was great to spend some time with Charger Steve! It’s been a while, as he heads up the San Diego Chapter of Star Car Central, heck, he practically IS the whole chapter with all his cars!
The excitement is growing for his Del Mar show in just a few weeks!
Click the link to sign up your car, spaces are limited, and Charger Steve always puts on a great party!
Finishing off our line up in the prime spot infront of the police HQ was Vic and Dana, and their great Blues Brother’s police car!
Photobucket
(Cool) Hats off to them, for staying in the sun with black Suits and ties on all day, working the crowd! Note to self: Once you give Dana a Microphone, don’t expect to get it back any time soon! He’s a crack up, and he’s got a million one liners! Not sure how they did on tips, but I know they got fed well!
Photobucket
Photobucket
Jason stopped by with his Herbie to take some photos and head out, and in his travels he found this “sort of” A-Team van, hey at this point, I will consider it…..
Photobucket
Of course Jason always on the lookout for a photo op, convinced all the super heroes to mosey over to HIS car for a quick shot!
Photobucket
Thanks to Scott and Vicky and their two “wards” batgirl and Robin for taking their day to amaze little kids and pose for lots of photos in the hot sun! I don’t know how they do it! Also special award for being a trooper to Batgirl, who “played injured” with a hurt toe!
(I am not sure if I am allowed to expose their secret identities….)

So starts the busy season for StarCarCentral.com! Next week the biggest one day car show on the west coast, Crusin for a Cure at the orange county fair grounds, so stop by and say “HI!” we will be under shade between two of the front buildings! Charger Steve is bringing his BTTF Delorian (first movie style) to debut at the cruise this coming Saturday, Sept 26th 2009 but all of our other delorian pals will be gull winging their way to Vegas for a big Back to the Future convention!
Our own Paul Nigh will be showing his personal original props from the movie!

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!

More photos here!
