    Just out of curiosity, does anyone know what car their vehicle mode was based on? TFWiki doesn't mention them being based on any particular car, and it doesn't look much like anything I know of, although I don't know all that much about cars.

    Corvette C6 ZR1 as far as I can figure. Naturally with the changes necessary to avoid licensing.

    It's a Pontiac Firebird :)

    Just kidding. It's a mish mash of car design elements.

    Thanks. I did an image search, and the general shape of their vehicle modes does look a bit like the C6 ZR1, aside from the front (and, of course, the changes made to Wheeljack to make him look more like the Lancia he was in G1).

    LOL

    Also, take into account that the toy was initially designed to be Wheeljack. Hasbro requested a retool into Tracks from it. Don't know which figure went into production first, but what we ended up with was a Wheeljack toy using Lancia cues with the Corvette cues to accommodate Tracks.
