An Important Philosophical Question. [Dave at Garfield Ridge]

If you could drive any vehicle from movies or TV, which vehicle would you choose, and why?

A few weeks back on my site I linked to a now-defunct E-Bay auction from a guy selling a faithful replica of K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider.

The post inspired a debate with my buddy Chilperic concerning which was cooler: K.I.T.T., or the A-Team van.

I was shocked that anyone would even raise such a comparison. At the time, I noted that-- whereas K.I.T.T. was impervious to bullets, had turbo boost, and sounded like Topanga's teacher-- the A-Team van had few, if any, special powers. Other than looking bad ass, that is.

I concluded that the A-Team van had only the following special powers:

1. The ability to avoid getting pulled over by police, despite no change in its appearance for five seasons.

2. The ability to store enough heavy weapons to arm Bulgaria. As far as I can tell, the only explanation for carrying all those guns, ammunition, and welding equipment is that the vehicle was a +6 Van Of Holding, or had some sort of temporal displacement going on, making it Dr. Who's Battlewagon Of Love.

3. It provided a stable gun platform for accurate "intimidation" shooting out the sidedoor and windows. Without that special "NBC Family Hour" automotive suspension, submachinegun bullets could accidentally hit a bad guy in the leg, or worse, the chest.

And let me tell you, there are no sucking chest wounds during the NBC Family Hour.

So, why am I bringing this up again today?

Because someone on E-Bay is selling a replica time-machine DeLorean.

Admittedly, this is very cool. All the DeLorean style combined with Doc Brown's gadgets makes for one sweet ride.

Plus, it's not just for show-- it can make 88 mph with plenty of oomph to spare, just perfect for those times when you need to evade defrauded Libyan terrorists.

So, the question is out there to you, Ace's readers: out of any vehicle, any movie or TV show, which one is your dream ride?

We already know Ace is a fan of the last of the Interceptors.

(Speaking of Interceptors, here is a Lego version. Or, maybe you'd rather enjoy a Lego reenactment of The A-Team? Hell, they make anything out of Legos-- including, even, my Lord and Savior.)

As for me. . . hmmm. Can anyone really "drive" Optimus Prime? Or would that be like riding inside his robo-colon?

I must ponder.
