What year was the VETTE from STAR TREK??

The Vette chase in the beginning of the new Star Trek film was a 1965 Convertible… at least it was until the top flew off. Check out the scene!


VASQUEZ ROCKS STAR TREK FILMING LOCATION – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 734 – Fireball, Kathie and Ken head to Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce. Site of where they filmed many TV Shows including the 1960’s Star Trek. Funniness ensues.

Vazquez Rocks is prominently seen in a 1963 episode of Outer Limits called “The Zanti Misfits”.

The rocks are also in several television westerns, including the 1959 “Whipsaw” episode of Tombstone Territory; the Bonanza episode “Between Heaven and Earth”; The Wild Wild West episode “The Night of the Cadre”; and the opening credits of the TV Western Laramie as Slim Sherman and Jess Harper come riding down, each from one side.

The rock formations are also seen in the Michael Jackson music video “Black or White” when he dances with Plains Native Americans, and in an original series Star Trek episode “Arena”, where Captain Kirk rolls a boulder onto a reptiloid alien called a Gorn.

The prominent rock formation has been nicknamed “Kirk’s Rock” due to being featured in several Star Trek episodes, each time representing a different planet.

The use of the rock as a place to struggle with an enemy was echoed in the film Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey twice, once replaying the Gorn-themed Star Trek episode on the TV, and again when the title characters are murdered by their doubles at the same location.

A scene at a diner in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was filmed in front of the rocks, and in homage to the Star Trek episode, the diner is called The Arena Diner.

Coolest Concept Art of the Day… Star Trek, Star Wars, Blade Runner 2049

Fireball features Star Trek’s DENISE CROSBY for 5MINUTE DRIVE’s Episode 21 @theDeniseCrosby #johnvarvatos #chrysler


So excited about this week’s EPISODE 21 of 5MINUTE DRIVE as my guest was DENISE CROSBY (Star Trek The Next Generation/Pet Cemetery/ Ray Donovan). We had a blast, tooling through Pacific Palisades in the new 2014 CHRYSLER 300C Varvatos Luxury Edition and talking everything from Acting challenges, Gandhi and John Varvatos himself. Can you recognize the opening music by Acoustic Labs?

The Varvatos Edition Chrysler is an awesome ride at 292hp, heated everything, incredibly comfortable and elegant. We especially liked the unique sound system. 😉

Denise was an awesome guest (Don’t forget to follow her on Twitter!), so join me in a BIG THANKS to her in the comments. Enjoy!

Christmas, SCI-FI style…

Yes, the holidays are a time for being a bit outrageous with cheer. And this dood wanted to express his love for Trek by building a TrekTree of lights. Cool, huh?

Next, he’s doing a Klingon Warbird full size with a William Shatner head on top. It’s called a BirdShat. Hm….
