10.) Don't Drive It In A Red Shirt
What it is: Panel Van
What it's supposed to be: Star Trek Enterprise Shuttlecraft
Suggested By: ChiefPontiaxe
Why It's Awesome: It's both a faithful recreation of the Enterprise shuttlecraft and, if we're honest, completely ridiculous. Also, is that a captain's chair in the passenger compartment? Just don't drive it in a red shirt.
9.) Wait Until You See The Kaboose
What it is: London Cab
What it's supposed to be: Thomas The Tank Engine
Suggested By: 808Morgan
Why It's Awesome: The London Cab is already such an iconic part of the English landscape, the repurposing of it into an equally workman like vehicle. How can you ever be sad looking at Thomas The Tank Engine?
8.) Use Del Force
What it is: Honda Del Sol
What it's supposed to be: Star Wars X-Wing
Suggested By: DominicChan
Why It's Awesome: Attention to detail. Clever use of Altezza lights. Side-mounted guns. Wheel covers. R2D2!
7.) I Prefer WordPress
What it is: Custom Chassis
What it's supposed to be: Batman Tumbler
Suggested By: CoryD
Why It's Awesome: As we pointed out, this custom-built Tumbler is sitting in an Australian nieghborhood. And it runs!
What it is: Honda Motorcycle
What it's supposed to be: Akira Bike
Suggested By: Geistkoenig
Why It's Awesome: The Neo-Tokyo of 2019 and the actual Tokyo of 2010 aren't that different, you'll need a tough bike to get around.
5.) Drive While Listening To Daft Punk...
What it is: Custom chassis
What it's supposed to be: Tron Light Cycle
Suggested By: The Vanishing Boy
Why It's Awesome: Perhaps it's just the Tron fever talking, but I feel like I've always wanted a Light Cycle. Now I must have one.
4.) Do Not Make The Driver Mad, He Swears
What it is: Ford Falcon
What it's supposed to be: Main Force Patrol Interceptor
Suggested By: Comet65
Why It's Awesome: As comet65 points out, plenty of people make copies of the V8 Interceptor, but it takes a certain kind of fan-boy to build one of the MFP Pursuit cars.
3.) I Don't Dick Van Dyke
What it is: ???
What it's supposed to be: The Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Car
Suggested By: FlatheadSmith
Photo Credit: ChittyChittyBangBang.net
Why It's Awesome: This replica's the work of Tony Green, and it's so true to the original it's actually certified by MGM. Originally envisioned by Ian Flemming, in many ways it's the father of the Bond car.
2.) Someone Make Me A Plasma Sword
What it is: Diesel Nissan Patrol
What it's supposed to be: Halo Warthog
Suggested By: x4kk_k1rby
Why It's Awesome: Maybe this is me, but my favorite part of Halo is piloting the Warthog and running over people. This replica's so good it's almost better than original. Just don't mow anyone down in it.
1.) BTTF Replica
What it is: DeLorean DMC-12
What it's supposed to be: BTTF DeLorean Time Machine
Suggested By: Luis The Beast
Why It's Awesome: There's really no topping Gary Weaver's BTFF DeLorean. It's perfect. Charge up the Mr. Fusion and let's hit the road.
