Barrett Jackson - New Orleans - 2023


Are you getting as excited as I am about Barrett Jackson New Orleans 2023? This will be the first ever Barrett Jackson in New Orleans. The show starts next week on Thursday the 28th and runs through Saturday 30th. As always they'll have a live stream running of all the hot bidding action. If you happen to miss the show, don't worry it will be up on YouTube later in the coming weeks. I just finished going through the docket and we are in for a treat folks. Below are our movie and tv car related picks from the upcoming show.

Lot #680 - 1980 PONTIAC FIREBIRD TRANS AM TURBO T-TOP Final: $77,000.00

Our first pick is a very nice example of a 1980 SE Trans Am. Very much like the one Burt Reynolds drove in Smokey and the Bandit Part II. Complete with a 301 turbocharged V8 under the hood. According to the listing, this car has under went a complete comprehensive restoration. The real question is does it come with a Frog? *wink*

Lot #717 - 1967 FORD MUSTANG ELEANOR TRIBUTE EDITION Final: $440,000.00

Our next pick is a 1967 Shelby GT500 Eleanor Tribute car. Note this car is not an original screen used car. However it is a licensed replica. It features panels built by Cinema Movie Services. If you recall they're the original builders of the screen used cars. Under the hood a beafy Ford FE 429 V8 backed up by a 4-speed toploader transmission. With a 9 inch Ford rear-end sending all that power to the ground. There are several other Eleanor tributes or replicas going on the block this show. This one is our favorite.

Lot #814 - 1967 SHELBY COBRA RE-CREATION Final: $73,700.00

Last but certainly not least is a 1967 Cobra Re-Creation. I'm curious to see how this one goes. Factory built Shelby's bring a ton of money. This is a recreation, but built with Shelby parts. It should do well. A lovely looking build. You may remember our article from years ago about the Shelby Cobra body and frame that came up for sale on the Sharks and Cobras episode of Pawn Stars.

That's all for now, we hope you enjoy the show!

Fan Created Art - Fast and Furious 8 'Ice Charger' - RC Car


What happens when the worlds of 3D printing, remote controlled cars and tv/movie cars collide together? Well you get the image above. A fully printed remote controlled version of Dom's Ice Charger from Fast and the Furious 8. This work of living art was custom built buy a duo of brothers from Model Factory RC Cars. The pair have been cooking up working creations in their shop. All in the midst of this pandemic we're in. But how do they do it?

The pair began working with their uncle back in 2014. At that time they were designing replicas of Hungarian locomotives. They produced the replicas on a milling machine. Fast forward a year later and they shifted their focus to 3D printing. At that time they purchased their first printer, a Zortrax M200. Hungarian locomotives soon lead to making remote controlled cars.

With a background in engineering they developed a platform for their RC cars. The platform is completely customizable and adaptable for different cars. The cars come to life with some off the shelf components (which they sell in their shop). Electronics, wheels, springs, motors and other miscellaneous parts are not 3D printable (at least not yet). So they rely on these for now. Using a 3D scanner and a lot of cad time, each design comes together. After hours of printing, the body parts are assembled and painted. I'm super impressed with the work they've done.

Earlier this year they replicated a 1967 Mustang Fastback and launched a Youtube channel (links below). With each project they plan to produce a video of the design and construction. It's fun watching this all come together. This video is later followed up with a testing video. After the testing is complete they will make their 3D files for the project available. As well as a complete parts list needed to build your very own! To date they have a BMW e46 M3 GTR, 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback and Peugeot 406 TAXI models. Soon Dom's Ice Charger! I can't wait. Till next time, keep your engines revving, your RC cars spin'n and your printers step'n!

Famous Movie Cars As Pixar Characters


Imagine your favorite movie cars as Pixar characters! Well the guys over at Next Movie commissioned Old Red Jalopy (a poster designer) to anthropomorphically redesign seven famous movie cars as Cars 2 characters! Seven famous movie cars were Pixarized (is that even a word?). Not sure. But I agree with NextMovie.com, I too smell a concept for some interesting sequel material! Listen up Pixar and Cars fans!

All of the cars feature eyes on their windshields just like the regular Pixar Cars characters. Each of them have a unique smile and facial expression. I like how the artist took the time to make each car special. I can start to see voices and personalities forming in my head for some of the cars. However the pieces that really caught my eye were the Delorean Time Machine, The Batmobile, and Ecto 1! Check them out over at NextMovie.com! Hopefully Old Red Jalopy will have these posted on their site for public consumption too! See ya next time.

Jurassic Park - 1992 Jeep Wrangler Sahara


Jurassic Park - Jeep 18

If you had dinosaur ranch on a remote island what vehicle would you use to get around? The Jeep Wrangler was Universal's answer as to the vehicle of choice for Jurassic Park's staff transportation. You know, the Jeep is perfect for getting up and down through terrain, transporting stolen embryos and running from dinosaurs. At least that was the case for the Wranglers in the film.

Base Jeep

The base vehicle for Jurassic Park Jeeps were 1992 Jeep Wranglers (YJ). The Jeeps were the "Sahara" trim level which included a few exterior extras such as alloyed wheels, colored fender flares, step board and front bumper mounted fog lamps. Interior options were special trail-cloth seats and removable doors with pockets. All 1992 Saharas came with the 4.0 liter 6 cylinder standard.* All the Jeeps used in the film appear to have manual transmissions. However automatic transmissions magically appear from time to time (kinda like how the General Lee switches back and forth through the Dukes of Hazzard series).*

Jeep 18

Jurassic Park Jeep

What makes the JP Jeeps special? Well let's start with the paint scheme and graphics. The paint scheme consists of a Sand Beige Poly background with two red diagonal stripes through the body.* Each Jeep is numbered on hood, on the side and on front/back license plates.* There is also a id tag hanging from the rear-view mirror. The park logo is on the doors. The windshield frame is red with light bar hoop on top. However from my research only Jeep number 12 features lights on the light bar (maybe removable?). Don't shoot me down with hate mail if I'm wrong. The rear tail lights lights have additional amber lights on the top. The wheels are alloy, however they're painted red to match the stripes. All of the JP Jeeps are equip with winches and ride on BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires.

Jeep 29: Very little screen time for this Jeep.

Jeep 10: Note the missing top. Used in the scene where they escape from the T-Rex. Later used to escape to the chopper.

Jeep 12: Used to by Dennis Nedry in attempt to escape the ranch with stolen embryos.

Jeep 12: Can Dennis not drive? Note the Lightbar.

Jeep 12: Final scene for Jeep 12, Dennis is killed by a Dilophosaurus.

Final Thoughts

Above is a clip from our favorite scene from the movie. In this scene the visitors are being chased by the a T-Rex. For comic relief the camera pans to the side rear view mirror. On the mirror you can see a warning label that says "Objects In Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear." The T-Rex in the mirror is looking a little too close for comfort. I still crack up when I see this scene. The Jurassic Park Jeeps are pretty neat. I think it would be a fairly easy movie car to clone. However it may not be one of the easier base vehicles to find. But they're around. If you're interested in creating one of your own, the guys at JurassicParkJeep.com forums maybe able to help ya out. It looks like a great community. Till next time, drive safe and watch out for dinos! Don't forget to register and chat with us in the forums!
