    If you have a photo of the vehicle one of the original Transformers was based off of, that you drove, or if you have a customized vehicle with an emblem/sigil on it, show it off! Please, it can be as easy as the vehicle you drive, an original phot of G1 based vehicle, or even the real life version of one of the recent Alternators figures.

    The more accurate (in respect to G1 figures), or the more detailed your custom vehicle is, the better. Don't be afraid to show off!

    Here are a few photos of my 2003 Toyota Tundra that I normally drive.

    Hmmm... I was hoping more people would reply.

    Even if you just have some window sticker, take a picture of it on your vehicle, and also a few of the vehicle itself. Please, share! You don't have to show some wild ride, just a decent photo of your decal and vehicle or maybe even the vehicle itself.

    Hahahaha It's VERY similar. Going to take pics here in a week with the new custom plates. So, anybody going to Botcon look out for this car with Grimmy plates. :D

    Yeah, that's the one, alph. :D 

    BTW, what color are the seats? I remember once when I saw one around here exactly that color and with red seats. Spitting image of Alt. Grimlock.

    Our sits are black. It's just a v6, so that's why we call it Grimmy, he's young punk. :lol

    V6 Mustang?!? The travesty! THE TRAVESTY!!! AHHHH!!!! A Mustang is meant to be driven and it is not the same car without a nice, POWERFUL, V8 engine.

    Ahem, ranting aside, nice car and thanks for contributing, Alphie. I've considered getting a Jeep identical to Hound, or a Mustang identical to Grimlock.

    Money and gas prices is what prevented us getting the v8 :( . We really did want the v8 though.

    Man, alphie's got the real-deal Grimmy.



    If it makes any difference to you guys, I saw a G1 Ironhide while waiting at a crosswalk the other day. Same Toyota van, same paint, same everything. Man did I do a double take.

    I looked at a V6 Tundra and the V8. Mileage (MPG) differences were negligible and would've been only a few hundred dollars difference in a year. I opted for the V8 and even with almost $3 a gallon prices in my area, I love it.

    When I get back to work, I plan on saving up for some engine modifications like new titanium - ceramic coated - headers, new exhaust system, Unichip and maybe even a supercharger. VROOM! VROOM!

    Paper Mariowned, I put that emblem on my grille and it is on there TIGHT! I can give you a recommendation for some mounting tape that will about hold anything on, almost anywhere.

    Toss up a picture of your bike and call it "High Wire", since you are already as umm...uh..."likeable" as Kicker was.

    SWEET! Despite a strong hatred towards Chevrolet (due to a local dealership, and corporate's response to how they dealership treated me), I love the Corvette.

    I have a charcoal grey '03 Mustang that has a Decepticon logo on it, which TF would be closest to that? And yes, I will post a pic of my coche.
