Where is Erik Estrada Now?

April 1, 2024

Actor and police officer Erik Estrada became a household name riding a motorcycle emblazoned with the California Highway Patrol logo on the TV series CHiPs, which ran from 1977 to 1983. Known as Poncho on the show, Estrada has remained active in acting since the series ended, appearing in movies and TV shows and doing character voice work on various television shows.

The Harlem, NY native has also continued to do charity work, including supporting police officers’ organizations around the country. He volunteered as a reserve police officer in Muncie, IN for two years and then moved to Bedford County, VA where he served as an Internet Crimes Against Children task force investigator. He’s also supported many other worthy causes such as CHiPs for Kids, Cops for Tots, Thalians, March of Dimes and Aids L.A. In his spare time, Estrada says he’s a “home handyman” and is always working on something around his house in the Hollywood Hills.

WECT is excited to announce that the star of CHiPs and Divine Renovation will be making a stop in Wilmington this weekend for the West Coast Kustoms Cruisin’ Nationals car show. He’ll be taking selfies with fans and signing autographs. Estrada will be joined by his pal and fellow car guru John D’Agostino, who is known as one of the top customs builders in the country.

Estrada and D’Agostino will be showcasing their classic and modern muscle cars at the fairpark at Santa Maria Fairpark Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is $20 per person.
