They're the vehicles that get our blood pumping and unlock our imagination. They often perform physics-defying maneuvers at break-neck speeds and are usually equipped with the coolest of gadgets.
For today's Throw Back Thursday Convo Topic, we posed the question:
If you could get the keys to any TV or Movie vehicles (doesn't have to be a real-life one, either) what would it be?
JStew: I had no idea this was going to get people so fired up this morning! tons of comments on Facebook, calls left and right...it was awesome. But for myself, even though I don't know the first thing about driving a rig, I'd want to take the Maximum Overdrive truck for a spin. When I was a kid, I actually got to sit in KITT when it came to the Bangor Auditorium for the World of Wheels car show back in 1984. There's a picture of me in it somewhere. I wish I knew where that was....
Cori: This one was tough for me, as there are so many awesome vehicles to choose from. I was leaning towards one of the newer versions of the Batmobile, but then I felt a special connection with the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars because "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid." And, because in my mind, the Falcon would HAVE to come with a Han Solo and a wookie...bonus!
But you had some pretty awesome suggestions as well!
