For Cars, Movies and Cool… it’s Fireball Tim!

This just in, guys! After this Sunday’s WHEELS AND WAVES, a group of us (and anyone who wants to join in) will be leaving Malibu right at 9am and heading to Oxnard’s MURPHY AUTO MUSEUM. On display starting Friday will be George Barris’ original 1966 BATMOBILE and MUNSTER KOACH!

I will be up there on Friday and Saturday as well (Press Release at the bottom of this post), but anyone coming to WHEELS AND WAVES this Sunday September 17th, I want you to caravan with us up to the Murphy to see these cars in person!

I was very fortunate to interview my good friend George before he passed on and you can also watch the episode below, but if you haven’t seen these cars, now’s your chance. JOIN US!
