    Title basically says it all. I'm fairly sure this has been done to death many times before but what the hey, I'm in a car talk mood. XD

    If it were feasible (financially and other factors), what real world car (or similar wheeled vehicle) that has based on it a Transformers character and/or toy would you like to zoom around in?

    The character/figure can be from any series, movie, or line. The alt mode can be any realistic wheeled vehicle (an everyday commuter, a weekend racer, a special occasion collector's classics, etc.)? Why did you pick your choice?

    (And please try to keep it civil without dragging the whole thread into an American muscle vs. ricer argument, lol.)

    Me, I'd go for Alternity Convoy as the Nissan GT-R. It's just plain fast and drop dead sexy! The Spec V is even more balls-to-the-wall insane. Many claim it's too robotic (see what I did thar? heh) and relies overly much on electronic launch controls (they can be shut off though), taking personal skill out of the driving experience but I think I can definitely live with it to command all that AWD power. XD And I love the fact that Optimus Prime has such a cool car as his alt mode in Alternity (originally, the GT-R was meant for Meister/Jazz in early design sketches).

    Sadly, I don't have $90,000+ USD to blow on a GT-R. ;__; However, I can realistically afford the next best thing (without relying on a loan too, heh) -- a Nissan Fairlady 370Z aka Alternity Megatron. Also love the aesthetics of this car and it's a great performance machine too (being rear wheel drive, it's perfect for drifting)! The fact that Alternity Megatron is a badass samurai with such an awesome alt mode is just icing!

    So what are your choices (and runners up)? Let's hear 'em!

    First choice is obvious... Barricade -- black Saleen S281 Mustang police car.

    Runner-up is a three way tie between the Bumblebee Camaro, Alternators Swindle -- yellow Jeep Wrangler, and Ironhide -- black GMC TopKick.

    Prime Cliffjumper, minus the horns on the hood.

    TFTM Big Daddy would come in a close second.

    What can I say? I am a sucker for classic big block Chryslers. :p

    I'm going to go with Prime Bulkhead. I'm liking that SUV thing that looks like an updated GI Joe Vamp.

    I want Hot Rod, whatever futuristic car he was supposed to be! I especially love his motor coming out of the hood and the exhausts on the side of the car. Noone does that nowadays. But I love it!
