'I used to bullseye womp-rats in my Honda back home. They're not much bigger than two meters.'
...and I can't decide if these are the ultimate in cool car customization, or the last word in sci-fi geekdom! You decide.
'Red Five, standing by. And no, I won't help you move.'
'FOR SALE-'25 Landspeeder. Low kilometers. One owner. Like new inside. Must sell-owner needs money to hire a ship to go to Alderaan. Call 825-12-12-544-25251.'
'OK, Mister 'Jedi Master'. Do you know how fast you were going? I'll need to see your license and registration.'
'Driving a Chevy ain't like dusting crops, boy. You could drive too close to the median barrier or get too close to an overloaded garbage truck, and that'd end your trip real quick!'
Of course, Star Wars wasn't the only inspiration for customization:
"Fleeing from the Cylon tyranny the last battlestar, Galactica, leads a rag tag fugitive fleet on a lonely quest. A shining planet known as Earth. Where the remnants of the Twelve Colonies will move to the suburbs."
And of course, Star Trek has inspired a few creations as well.
This, I understand, is the concept interior for the Nissan Terranaut. I don't suppose it will end up anything like this when it's all done. But I'm reminded of the interior...
... of the interior of the Danube class runabouts from Deep Space Nine.
KIRK: 'The crew of the RV will consist of-myself, Commander Spock, Dr. McCoy...and Ensign Redshirt!'
ENSIGN REDSHIRT: 'Ohh, crap!'
'Captain's log, stardate 9871.2. Our 'cross-picture' rendezvous with Lone Starr from 'Spaceballs' is proceeding according to plan...'
'Unfair! I get a D+ in Quantum Field Tensor class at the Academy, and Jim Kirk gets a C-. He gets command of a starship, and I drive a Prius from the motor pool.'
What say you? Uber-cool? Or Ultra-Geek?
