More details were released today for the upcoming inaugural NostalgiaCon. The convention will take place on September 28th and 29th at the Anaheim Convention Center, and will feature a few different vehicles that were made famous in movies from the ’80s.
Someone of the vehicles that will be on display include DeLoreans, Trans Ams, Firebirds, a Family Truckster ala “Vacation”, a “Ghost Buster” ambulance, and more!
As a new convention taking place in a large convention center that is home to such other conventions as WonderCon, DesignerCon, BlizzCon, and more this is a big jump for a new convention.
I, for one, can’t wait to see how this new con on the already crowded con scene turns out, especially since it’s a new theme.
Full press release is below.
Rev Those Engines! DeLoreans and Other Iconic ‘80s Cars are Coming to NostalgiaCon’s ‘80s Pop Culture Convention
LOS ANGELES, CA – August 20, 2019 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – Rev those engines because the DeLoreans of “Back to the Future” fame and other iconic ‘80s cars will be lining up for their Instagram pics with fans at NostalgiaCon’s ‘80s pop culture convention (www.NostalgiaCon80s.com), September 28 and 29 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
As part of a partnership with the international DeLoreans Owners Association, and the Southern California DeLorean Club, NostalgiaCon will showcase three different versions of the time machine vehicles that are forever identified with ‘80s pop culture.
