Tag! You're It!

i've been tagged by the infamous and extremely inventive Dr. Max Tunguska at The Tunguska Event to "name seven fictional cars or other vehicles you'd have liked to have driven and why;"

Cars…  Vehicles… Aircraft… Spacecraft… oh god man, you certainly had no idea i have an extreme love  for souped up… er… tricked out?… um… maybe now it’s called pimped up? vehicles - of any sort - did you?  Especially for those that never truely existed!

*gets lost in daydreams and drooling*
*polishes dribbling into the chrome with shirtsleeve*

i spent hours whittling the list down to twenty-five before i had an epiphany! Hey, what if i list seven categories instead!?!  But, alas, categories didn't work either because seven fell into many and the drooling started to form puddles on my desktop...

another epiphany!


i printed the list, cut them out, shuffled them in a bowl, threw them into the air, and chose seven lucky winners out of the scattered pieces -

with my eyes closed...

and now; for your enjoyment are the lucky Seven in very random order;

  • ENTERPRISE NX-01; Starfleet's very first Warp powered starship.  A rudimentary beauty with very few bells and whistles but in my eyes she is the sleekest starship ever bar none - and surely they'd have been able to equip the helm with a hydraulic booster seat so i could reach the console by 2151...
  • DEAN WINCHESTER'S 1967 CHEVY IMPALA; Sure, it just a car; but honey, its a sexy black beauty that seems to know when it's needed and when possessed i swear it can drive all by itself. 
  • DOC BROWN'S DELOREAN; so many places to go and so many different times i want to be there and its a; one of a kind turn your head and look at that! sort of car.  
  • ECTO 1; Hey who wouldn't wanna drive this baby with the sirens blaring?!? "Oh Yeah! i came. i drove. i kicked your ass!"
  • THE I ROBOT AUDI; Verbal driving with manual on the fly!  i could get used to that! and hey, maybe my passengers would stop leaving finger marks in my dashboard.
  • JAMES BOND'S (Daniel Craig version) ASTIN MARTIN DBS; The name is Annie. Annie Hall...
  • THE FLINTMOBILE; YABBA DABBA DOO! i have the feet for this one! Ask Indigo.
And now I must tag a few other bloggers with my own question, but because i am certain any one of you would have an excellent response i am going to break the rules and tag any blogger who would like to step up to the challenge;

Which cartoon character(s) do you most identify with and why?  


  1. I drool over Astin Martin's too. They are gorgeous and so very 007 :)

  2. DEAN WINCHESTER'S 1967 CHEVY IMPALA - Oh yes!!! What a car.

    Great list by the way. I knew you'd do something good with the seven things idea.

  3. I should have added the Delorean to my list! Great addition! I actually had a Flintmobile once... the bottom was all rusted out so when I drove in the rain the water would splash up on my feet. (Yeah, I drive classy vehicles in my non-fiction life.)

  4. Rebecca and the new James Bond isn't so bad either! ;)

    idifficult you know the car! sweet ain't she?

    CatLadyLarew I'll pick you up! =) I think i owned a "pea soup green" Maverick with the same problem... ah, the lives of the rich and nonfamous! ain't we got fun though? =P

  5. Hey Eolist! I guess you've already been in a black Ford Mustang... Indigo x

  6. Indigo - that black Mustang was actually the first car i thought of but she was not fictional. dreams do come true, it can happen to you... what a trip that was eh? and yes, i wanna do it again. next time however, i get to drive!
