Art Center College of Design Car Classic 2014
This past Sunday 10/26/14 The Next Level Brothers were blessed to be at the official Art Center College of Design Car Classic 2014 event. Major props to our leaders at the school that all worked so hard to make this event a success. It was very exciting to witness all of the historic cars that came from some of our favorite classic movies. The environment was filled with joy and a car loving passion. The Hollywood theme, the beautiful California sunshine and the usual mix of famous car designers and their cars all combined to draw a record 2700 people to the Art Center’s wonderful mountaintop view for one of the best gatherings in the show’s 11- year history.
It was the Batmobiles from Warner Brothers that took center stage and owned the spotlight. But there were many others such as the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine and the McClarens that needs no introduction.
Chronologically the Batmobiles started with a 1956 Oldsmobile transformed from comic book sketches into fiberglass as the first DC Comics Batmobile.“It’s what a Batmobile would look like as drawn in a comic book,” said owner Alicia Belzberg. George Barris was on hand to introduce the Batmobile from the 1966 TV series.“The car started out as the Ford Futura concept car,” said Barris. “We wanted to add all the stuff we did with hot rods. It’s not really a crime fighter but a car people would enjoy, a car that made people happy.”
If you had a chance to choose one car of your dreams what would it be?
