zombie defying Veloster built by Galpin Auto Sports reported to be coming to Comic Con. I'll be looking for it!

found in a press release by Auto Guide: http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2013/06/hyundai-veloster-zombie-fighter-to-debut-at-san-diego-comic-con.html

some making of photos at https://www.facebook.com/GalpinAutoSports but not really showing jack squat. Probably not worth the time to click through, as they won't show anything worth seeing til the big reveal at Comic Con

This is the 10th Anniversary of The Walking Dead comic book, and the Galpin Veloster is working with that http://dailydead.com/comic-con-2013-the-walking-dead-10th-anniversary-celebration-announced/

Comic Con is coming!

This is THE movie concept artist for Oblivion, Andree Wallin, and is an artistic concept of the San Diego Convention Center, as it would appear in the Tom Cruise movie Oblivion... Holy Crap this is cool!

I'm a San Diegan, and to see an incredible artists work of a local architectural landmark is astounding

This piece is to commemorate Comic Con 2013, and is actually AVAILABLE!

Booth #4014, Geek Magazine has a limited edition tote bag with this piece of art on it, if you go to their Twitter account and get their code word.

Since the above doesn't have a wheeled vehicle, and I try to keep that principle as my focus, here's Tom Cruise in the movie on a "Moto" bike


GEEK Magazine is proud to partner with Universal Studios Home Entertainment to bring fans an exclusive one-of-a-kind giveaway at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Featuring original artwork by Andree Wallin, the concept illustrator for the film, specially commissioned just for this convention, the bag depicts a post-apocalyptic 2017 San Diego Convention Center in ruins. Everyone who comes to Comic-Con will covet this beautiful, highly collectible tote bag. But few will be able to get this special limited edition collector’s item. The only way to get yours is to watch Geek’s Twitter feed each day to get a special “Oblivion” password or attend one of our GEEK panels where the day’s password will be revealed. Bring that password to the GEEK booth at #4014 and pick-up your own bag, while supplies last each day.

Busted! My ordinary post was copied in full by a 'bot, and that scraper blog posted my telling it's readers to come here for the real Justacarguy content, not the copy

Notice the URL is maryafreiria blogspot, some scraper bot nonsense, and they use the banner function to call their rip off "JUST CAR GUY"

What a cheap, 3rd world - knock off

My post title "if you aren't reading this on Just A Car Guy. blogspot ... " was the same post title, and wouldn't you think any moron would just erase this post from all the content they stole from my site?

Had deer jump in front of your car on the highway? Not as bad as Impala being chased by Cheetah (the animals this time) jumping INTO an SUV

from the "Pixar Theory" of Jon Negroni (astonishing perspective on the Pixar movies) the trailer from both Bugs Life and Monsters University

if you like Pixar movie ( I love them ) and enjoy the analytically made connections of the various things that show up in many or all Pixar movies (The pizza delivery truck) then read through the astonishing thesis of Jon Negroni http://jonnegroni.com/2013/07/11/the-pixar-theory/

I'm excited to see the old rims, tires, license plates and spray cans are displayed with it... Pennsylvania plates, and the car was just photographed at Carlisle 

I finally learned of a model T museum that has been photographed many times but not identified in emails, Near Yuma Arizona is an old gas station / private collection/museum

Steve told me that this was originally a gas station in Holtville Ca, but was bought and moved here

it is North of Yuma, in a small town named Bard. The collection is open for visitors in the cool winter months http://www.dynamitedave.com/places_cloud_museum.html
