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.
