    So lets say you own a paint shop... and have $100,000+ to blow...

    And made this.

    I'd drive the Cab around town. I'd rather not bother maneuvering the trailer around my local area. It would be pretty awesome, though.

    Yeah, trailer not needed...

    I am honestly a little surprised no-one seems to have ever done it. In Texas we have those old trucks in truck yards collecting rust all along the highways... just sitting there.

    If I were to buy one, I could have the frame powercoated blue... the cab painted... this could be made. Easily.

    Surly I am not the only one who has ever thought of this.

    I'm sure someone has done it somewhere.

    If I had the money my truck would be even more autobot looking than it is now.

    It's funny, I already get asked OFTEN if it's a special edition.

    While nowhere near this level, there is an old abandoned White cab that looks like Ultra Magnus with the Autobot logo graffiti-ed on the side not far from me.

    I don't think driving a big truck looks like much fun, especially if it's got a trailer.

    Ok, so ditch the trailer.

    You can drive the cab around.

    I cannot believe no-one has done this yet.

    This^.

    Though I'd keep the trailer in storage, and haul it out when I'm moving, or something.

    I would do it, kit the inside of the trailer out as a Transformers toyshop, and then drive around to various big events. Or something. I'd probably have to be rich to begin with though.

    So, how much of you can actually drive a tractor trailer?

    I drive a GMC Sierra truck and think it's to big for what I need. The cab alone dwarfs my truck. So, no, I wouldn't want to drive that around town.

    We're probably just now reaching the point where someone who was a fan of the original cartoon and toys would hypothetically be successful enough to drop that much $ on something like this. And they'd have to be a huge fan.

    Sure would! I could convert the trailer into a party pad with an HD tv and episodes of TF's to your hearts content. Open the mini-fridge for drinks and it will play "Instruments of Destruction". Statue of Jazz in the corner holding a mini disco ball. LOL I'd "Pimp My Ride" and hold constant parties around the country! LOL

    Imagine seeing it at conventions parked out by the door...

    Yeah... I will begin some research. Seriously.

    I have many deep connections in the auto industry. :)
