Who wants a starring role in today's biggest, smashiest hit, the INTERNET? You do! And how can you do it? By helping Jalopnik start a good car-based meme! Why not? You've got an internet-set, right? May as well use it!
Here's what I'm thinking: remember Speed Buggy? it was one of those innumerable 70s-era Scooby Doo knockoffs that had some teens and a sort-of-sentient-non-human something (whale, dog, robot, ghost, cat, etc.) that would travel around, getting into jams or scrapes and occasionally foiling some sort of low-level real estate scam that involved the wearing of masks. Well, I remember it, mostly because as a kid I really liked the anthropomorphic (with correct eyes) Myers Manxish buggy.
