I have a Decepticon logo on my car. What are you trying to say?

What I don't have is Transformers logos embroidered on the upholstery. That's a new level of commitment to the brand. (Not to mention, my friend Andy's Decepticon logo on his left shoulder).

If it were a VW Bug, I'd be all over that.

What am saying is that you're weird that the core Transformers brand market group is unlikely to pony up $900/mo. for the Camaro and the retro sports car enthusiast market group won't be willing to pay $1000 extra for Autobot upholstery. See what I mean? I can see die hard Steve McQueen/Mustang fans buying the Bullitt car and Harley-Davidson/Ford fans buying the truck because those groups have proven willing to fork over tons of money for special badging and mods.

I think if The Transformer package had more than just Autobot logos (like special tires/exclusive audio-visual package/ body kit/ performance mods) they'd have something, but if I wanted a Bumblebee car I'd buy the regular yellow Camaro and stick an Autobot emblem on it.

It's like why VW never made a Limited Edition #53 Herbie Beetle - not enough people willing to buy.

I'm still kinda boggling about Seth Rogen being an action/comics hero dude. (I will freely admit that I know nothing of the Green Hornet, so maybe this really is a good choice)

You are awesome.
Also, I want that Bumblebee car.
Although, it might be cheaper/easier to buy a lookalike and paint the stripes on...

But always wanted one of these.

The SC-series has a little triangular piece of glass behind the driver's side suicide door that just screams out "Decorate me!"

Oh, up 'til recently, I owned a black baseball cap with the Decepticon logo and some really nice Takara metal Transformers, so I do like the franchise, but not for $35 grand. Razz

Oh God. Jaguar. Any Jaguar. *lusts*
In dark green or dark blue, with a cream coloured upholstery.
If Jaguars didn't spend most of their time in the garage in need of fixing and ultra-expensive parts, I might try to save up for one. They're the most beautiful cars in the world. I've never seen an ugly Jaguar.

Speaking of which, the ugliest (contemporary) car in the world is surely the Fiat Multipla. It actually looks like it has obese neck folds. I still want to meet the guy who told Fiat, "I have this great idea for a brand new design". Aren't Italian cars supposed to be especially designy?

As for more reasonable cars...hm, I'm quite in love with the Mini too, Furious. But last time I tried to drive one it kind of bolted away with me. It's got too much temprament for my driving style. Big Grin

And thirdly, an Audi TT Cabrio (ok, maybe an A3 cabrio, as I'm not a racer). Again, if it made sense to buy one (if I could use it more often than 30 days a year. Razz) I might try saving up for one. Audis are a perfect mix of German technology and design. Not as aggressive as a BMW, not as luxurious as a Mercedes. They're beautiful. Smile

I am an Alfisti, an enthusiast of Alfa Romeo cars. There is just something about these cars that means I can't imagine driving anything else. The alure of the circular badge, the Cross of Milan on one half and the Visconti dragon on the other, is just irresistable.

I won't deny that they had some problems in the seventies (but so did every other car maker), but that long since behind them My latest object of affection is the Brera coupe.

Alfa BreraS AlfaBreraS

I want one. I want one with a V6 engine in Alfa red. And I want it NOW!

The first car I drove was this piece of crap. I hated my parents for having no taste whatsoever.

The Wayne's World movie didn't help matters either.

One of my favorite stories about that was the guy who was tasked to build the stretch limo in the second movie was trolling junkyards looking for Pacers to modify and the guy at the junkyard was talking up a POS: "You should hang onto this. It'll be worth something. I hear they're making a sequel to Wayne's World."

Guy, trying to to laugh responds with, "Huh. Really?"

Your link 403s, by the way.

Hrm... works for me but maybe the pic is still in Firefox's cache. *shrugs* I hate that car so much that I don't want to store it on my own web space. Big Grin

Anyhoo, the pic is of a late 70's AMC Pacer, the perfect car to let your kids use if you don't want them to breed.
