5 Awesome pop culture vehicles I’d love to drive in real life
New assignment for the League this week. This week Brian wants to hear what pop culture vehicles do you personally want to drive?
Right off the bat, Brian took the Batmobile off the table, so I can’t include it here. For grins and giggles, though, my favorite version of the Batmobile? The one from Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns. However, it wouldn’t have been my #1 pick, but it would have made the top 5. Possibly even top 3.
So let’s take a look at the 5 pop culture vehicles I’d personally like to own and drive. And yes, these are in order of preference.
BTTF time traveling Delorean – Hands down, this is my number one. And that should be obvious if you’ve read my blog for longer than 15 minutes. Not only does it look bad ass but it TRAVELS THROUGH TIME. And obviously I want the one from the end of the first movie with the Mr Fusion (so I don’t need Plutonium) and the 2015 hover conversion (so the thing can FLY).
KITT – KITT is a very close second. Why is it second to the Delorean? Because it doesn’t come with the ability to TRAVEL THROUGH TIME. Time Travel trumps pretty much anything else. However, having a talking bad ass car that can almost fly is pretty awesome, so I would want it next. Btw, I want the classic Pontiac Trans-Am version, not the crappy Ford Mustang version.
Autocar – From the short lived TV show Automan. This baby can go super fast and turn at 90 degree angles. And it looks awesome and TRON-like. When you’re done, it disappears into grid lines before vanishing into the ether. Never pay for parking again.

Dodge M4S Turbo Interceptor – This was the awesome spectral car from the Charlie Sheen vehicle The Wraith. Say what you will about this 80s guilty pleasure, but that car is BAD ASS. Super fast, hyper agile and able to completely reconstitute itself after a crash. F**K YOU, INSURANCE!
Firefox – Shawn at Branded in the 80s picked Airwolf, which is awesome, but highly impractical for driving down to the convenience store for beer and Twizzlers. Honestly, though, I do like his idea of picking Airwolf. And if I myself were to pick a flying machine (other than a time traveling Delorean with a hover conversion) I would probably have picked Firefox from the 1982 Clint Eastwood movie. It’s a bad ass super fighter jet with thought impulse controls. YES, THE PLANE RESPONDS TO YOUR THOUGHTS. However, the computer only understands Russian, but actually having a Firefox plane would be worth learning Russian through Rosetta Stone or an online course. But again, that still seems like a lot of work.
