Fireball Tim's Hollywood Garage comes to San Diego
Legendary Specialty Car Designer and TV Host joins the San Diego International Auto Show
San Diego, Cal., Dec. 1, 2011 - The San Diego International Auto Show� is going Hollywood. Hollywood Garage that is. The show announced today that legendary Hollywood Movie Car Designer and TV host, Fireball Tim will be present at the show in a number of ways.
An automotive Hollywood lifestyle brand, "Fireball Tim's Hollywood Garage" will not only be displaying 14 famous movie vehicles, (Kenny Wayne Shephard's Charger and cars from the movie "In Time" built by Picture Car Warehouse, Fireball's own King Tahoe concept and a $2 million prototype from Vision Industries) but he'll be filming his show live in two of the most insane chairs you've ever seen, designed by Fireball himself and built by Lifetime Oil Filter.
"The SDIAS continues to build its reputation as a venue where guests can not only find their automotive soul mate, but it has become an entertainment destination in its own right by concentrating on families," said Kevin Leap, director of the SDIAS. "The addition of Fireball Tim is a great step in providing the kind of entertainment that is conducive to the car shopping experience of the show."
Fireball Tim's Hollywood Garage will compliment the Kid's Zone, Camp Jeep� and many other interactive experiences that will be interspersed with the over 500 vehicles on exhibit by major auto manufacturers. But it doesn't stop there. Fireball will also be launching a new kid's book entitled "The BIG BOOK of WACKY RIDES," host a live pinstripe session from striping legend Jeff Styles, a Kid's Car Design Contest, cool giveaways and a preview of Fireball going virtual in the first 3D Social Entertainment Network from Marquee Productions.
