Road Squadron

Posted By Dustin on July 19, 2012

The tricked out Star Wars themed cars on display at past celebrations were brought to you by Road Squadron. This time they need your help! They've launched a Kickstarter page to assist in their efforts. Please help these dedicated Star Wars fans get their carships and carfighters to the Orlando system this August!

ROAD SQUADRON!
The very name conjures images of the open road! Or maybe just a rag-tag group of rebel art car enthusiasts with a love of Science Fiction.

The Sci-Fi-themed art cars of Road Squadron are setting off from all corners of the US to convene and display at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and Dragon*Con in Atlanta, and we want you to ride shotgun with us! We're building the cars at this very moment, racing against our deadline as we hope to finish in time to get 12 vehicles from California, Nevada, Michigan, Maryland, Texas, and Iowa to Florida while recording and sharing every part of the process of the over (for some of us) 5800 mile trip.

OUR MISSION: To document our journey as we get our mad mix of vehicles - from muscle and sportscars to sedans, SUVs and beaters - to our two destinations with crews, cars and friendships intact. We want you to experience the triumphs and pitfalls of our geek-centric road-trip with us in as real-time as possible, so you'll be privy to Twitter and Facebook updates from the road, YouTube shout-outs and recaps of the day's journey, and video highlights of the stops and tours along the way. We plan to set up each car with cameras plus a chase car and crew, allowing us to archive everything that goes on during the two-week trip for a final video compilation when we return.

HOW YOU'RE HELPING: The funds we're seeking are simply the expendable costs of getting us there and back again; largely fuel for up to 12 vehicles. The cars' building costs are coming from our own pockets, as is most of the documentation gear. But we aren't going to have much of a documentary if we can't get to our destination, so you are the tiger in our tanks. We really want to finally share what promises to be an amazing road trip with all of those of you who have been telling us for 13 years, "I wish we could ride with you!"

Sound exciting? We think so, and hope it does to you as well- we can't make it without you, regardless of how much the force may be with us...

WHAT IS ROAD SQUADRON?
Founded in 1999, Road Squadron is an informal, volunteer, nation-wide collection of individuals who have the love of car modification and science fiction in common. Squadron cars feature custom designs from Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Ghostbusters and more, or are of the designer's own creation. This trip will be our 2nd national meetup, and the first time many of us have met, traveled together and seen each others' artistic creations in person. We use our interests as a catalyst to do good works in our communities, sharing our passion for causes we believe in.

A smaller caravan from Los Angeles to Indianapolis was accomplished in 2005, but we didn't have the proper means to document it; with your help, we hope to make it for 2012!"
