    I was watching Top Gear on BBC America and saw a car that looked a lot like Wheeljack. It was a (edit: newer) Lancia Stratos. I thought the funniest part was the fact that the car kept breaking down, much like wheeljack's inventions.

    Do you think that they fashioned Wheeljack's personality after Lancia's famous reputation for shoddy craftsmanship?

    Here's a link to the video YouTube - Top Gear - Lancia Stratos Lap by The Stig

    Quite possibly, but I thought it was a good rally car. Maybe better racing car than street car?

    Funny, I saw that episode recently too and thought the exact same thing.

    (about the car looking like Wheeljack, not the breaking down thing)

    Makes me wonder why Top Gear have never done a feature on the TF movie cars. I know they've had a few on individually, like the Mustang, but as a group it would be soooooo cool to see them go round the track with the Stig behind the wheel!

    I remember that episode. I thought the exact same thing :lol 
    I sat there through the whole thing drooling over the car.

    I know! It would be so cool.
    They haven't even driven the new Camaro yet :inquisiti 
    And that was a car I was certain they'd drive.
