I was by the San Diego Automotive Museum in Balboa Park the other day and took in the current exhibit, “Star Cars.”

Says the museum:

The exhibit illustrates the impact cars have had on film and television over the years.

Featured vehicles include: 1958 Plymouth Fury (Christine), 1950 Studebaker (Batman Forever), 1979 Checker Cab (Catch Me if You Can), 1972 Honda 600 (Almost Famous), 1975 Gran Torino (Starsky & Hutch), 1964 Scooby Doo Mystery Machine, 1947 Ford Police Car (The Magestic), 1950 Mark V Jaguar (New York Heartbeat), 1970 Volkswagen (Herbie the Love Bug), 1991 Pontiac Firebird (Knight Rider), 2001 Honda S2000 (2 Fast 2 Furious), 1966 Ford Thunderbird (Thelma & Louise), 1978 Subaru (The Conjuring), and a 1966 Crown Imperial (The Green Hornet).

The exhibit also features a 1976 Harley Davidson owned and ridden by Evel Knievel. Memorabilia from the films and TV shows enhance the exhibit offerings.

The exhibit runs through Oct. 2. Now that summer is just about over, the park will be less crowded; who knows, you might find a parking spot right at the front door.
