Grand Rapids Comic-Con Car Show
The following vehicles will be displayed at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con in the vending area of the DeVos Place on November 9-11. Patrons may pose with each car and have a professional photographer shoot their picture with it for only $5. Pictures will be downloaded daily to Facebook where you may obtain the photo and use as you see fit. All proceeds will go the charities mentioned by each car:
Check out this absolutely amazing custom spaceship created by Steve Anderson of Indianapolis! Built off of the frame of a 1991 Geo Metro, this truly unique vehicle looked like it came off the set of Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers (don’t know the film? Look it up, kids) and has been featured at car shows and special events all over Indiana. Fans of “Rick and Morty”, “The X-Files”, and classic science fiction are going to have one of the most unique photo ops ever with this downright odd contribution to the Grand Rapids Comic-Con car show! Proceeds go to the Bridge at Arbor Circle.
Jinkees, kids, it’s the Mystery Machine! This is not some replica, but rather the actual promotional vehicle that Hanna-Barbera used to promote the show’s initial release back in 1969 at festivals, county fairs, and other events around the country. Lovingly restored by Robbin Terry at Midwest Classic Insurance using the original plans from Hanna-Barbera’s archives, you will swear you are on the hunt solving mysteries with Scooby and the gang. You can find out more about the original Mystery Machine here. Proceeds to go to the Lost Limbs Foundation.
Booth 329. If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Well, the Ghostbusters of course! Specifically, the Great Lakes Ghostbusters Coalition who will arrive in their version of an Ecto-1. Built by Eric Libdow, this vehicle serves our local spectre chasing heroes in their quest to capture all malevolent spirits as well as an awesome photo op.
First comes the oooing and the awwing, then the running and the screaming…well maybe just the admiring noises directed at this marvelous rendition of a Jeep from the dinosaur classic Jurassic Park. Built by Matthew Scheltema, this is the perfect vehicle to use to escape a herd of Velociraptors or pose with a group of buddies for an amazing photo op. Make sure to check out the Jurassic Park Jeep at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con! All proceeds to go to Extra Life.
