The League: Sweetest Pop Culture Ride
This weeks league post takes me a bit out of my comfort zone. This week we we talk about the "sweetest" pop culture ride! Lucky for me the word ride was used . . . and not car. So strap in we are about to look at some of my favorite modes of transport from pop culture. Yeah, I'm cheating a bit!
Besides the Batmobile, what is the sweetest ride cruising the streets of pop culture?
These are not in any particular order. To be honest these are just a few of the things that jumped into my head when I read the question for this week. I have always been a fan of many different vehicles from cartoons and movies, but I'm not the traditional "Car" kind of guy.
I'm honestly not sure I can choose a single "sweet ride" but I suppose if I had to pick a way to get to work in the morning the ride I would choose would be:
A lot of new fans of Doctor Who may not know that the Doctor has been known to drive a car. In his third incarnation the doctor was stuck on earth and helped a para-military group called U.N.I.T. While he was here he traveled in style. His car was called Bessie. The TARDIS wasn't working so he had to get from place to place some how. So this classic Roadster was how he did it. It is a fine piece of car.
Some others that stand out to me!
Bumble bee was every kid's favorite Transformer. Spike was the lucky kid that got to run around with him. He was a Volks Wagon bug, that turned into a robot. He had snide remarks to make, and could even change his own flat tire. Not much to look at, but would be a great ride to have!
So these are really breaking the rules but I had to include them.
For me the x-wing was always the coolest star fighter. It was perfect for traveling, as well as dog fighting. This was the space ship I always wanted! I have always preferred the the star wars concept of spaceships as opposed to some of the more star trek
What is your favorite rides from pop Culture.
