This year’s Pacific Beach Hot Rod and Classic Car Show, presented by Sycuan Casino and hosted by “Charger” Steve Lordigyan, will get fired up Sunday, Aug. 24 in the heart of Pacific Beach.

Headlining this year’s event will be the Michael Keaton Batmobile from the original “Batman” movie. Also on display will be the real Christine car from the 1983 horror movie of the same name.

A Michael Jackson impersonator is among the highlights.

“The Michael Jackson impersonator is amazing,” said Lordigyan, adding the carfest will also showcase Wild Thang, the nitro-burning dragster that shoots flames 30 feet in the air.

One of Pacific Beach’s signature events, the sixth annual car show features hot rods and classic cars, auto-related merchandise, food and music. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Garnet Avenue between Mission Boulevard and Dawes Street, on Bayard Street between Garnet Avenue and the alley, and Cass Street between Garnet Avenue and the alley.

Entertainment will also include a dance performance and a magician.

Turnout is expected to surpass 3,000 participants during the event, which is to include a bikini contest by Hollywood Tans, Hooters girls, and showcase hundreds of hot rods, classic cars and awesome antique motorcycles.

A celebrity appearance by Catherine Bach, “Daisy Duke” of the “Dukes of Hazard” TV show (1979-1985), was the highlight of 2013’s car show, which Lordigyan said gets bigger and better every year.
