    Okay, I had to go do Smitty's too. I had an idea.

    Let's see I own a 2004 GMC Canyon that other water damage runs fine and has a few pings and scratches from the environment which fits well with me as I cant swim(or float) and i have plenty of scars and dings from working

    From my experience my transector would be reliable and sturdy however only slightly stronger than the average bot and would not be effective underwater

    Apparently, I'm feeling super creative tonight. Also I'm stuck in a hotel on a business trip with lots of free paper and working pens.

    Not good in water? He better roll up his windows.

    Go for it.
    I'd love to get some of the real pros to fix some of my shortcomings.

    I usually don't like chicken legs but it seems to work here. Maybe the legs are from the wing pods and landing gear.

    You thinking Joker colors?
    I'd rather not though, too obvious.

    Great job on the sketches Infosaur.
    How was the Spyder? I had an MR2 MK1 and then the MK2. Probably my most favourite cars I’ve owned. Not the fastest but the best handling and quickest for acceleration and agility. I was a member of a club and we’d race them all the time. Great cars.

    If it was a choice though I’d steal my Uncles Dodge Hellcat. That thing is a monster. Not quite as fast as the demon but it’s less bare bones and still have all the gadgets you’d need. It’s a terrifying car, but awesome. So if it wasn’t my own car it would totally be that beast.

    I loved it. I drove it daily for 12+ years.
    The tricky part was holding onto it once I had kid, but since it got over 30 mpg I could argue it was a thrifty commuter since I drive to work alone. My son & I even took it on a camping trip with creative packing. Really stood out amongst the SUVs & Pickups.

    I never wanted to sell it.

    Unfortunately on my way to work one day as rain was rapidly turning to snow and the roads were icing fast, I spun into a stone wall at a comically low speed and ripped the guts out of the front end. Nobody (including me) thought the damage was bad, but the subframe was mangled and everything connected to it.

    Repair estimates quickly rose over $9k and there was no guarantee the frame could even be straightened. It was either take the blood money from the insurance or finance $12k in repairs that might not even work and have a salvage title.

    Aww man that’s rough. My MK1 died too rust. I tried restoring it but prices just kept getting worse every year. They were quite prone to rust issue. While it looked great it was all underneath. The curse of living near the sea.

    The Mk2, gearbox completely packed in and almost fell out. I ended up selling it off at an auction.

    After that it was my big beefy SAAB that I kinda inherited. Wouldn’t have been my choice but I do kinda love it now.

    Always tempted by something sportier but we will be planning a family soon and bigger cars make more sense.

    I dunno. Maybe? No idea what kind of car, though.

    An SUV, maybe?

    Looks like someone got on the wrong side of a Decepticon.

    I would. I drive an old 2006 Honda CRV. It's quite reliable and sturdy, and it even has a CD/tapedeck combo.

    I may well do... my main vehicles are a Range Rover Autobiography and an Aston Martin DB9GT, so I could pick and choose whether to attach myself to a big bruiser workhorse or a nimble, stylish spy car :)

    This whole scenario just ends with images of me in a schoolgirl outfit kissing my truck on the Rule 34 website, and I'll be damned if I fall for that.

    ...again.

    But if you don’t kiss it then it will never transform!

    Lol my drawing skill has always been crap. Proportionally I’m all over the place. Need to practice more and sketch out something before going to detail right away.

    Chunky boy. Tried to go with an IDW trailbreaker style but it’s all o we the place. Wanted to do a Knight vibe as my car is silver.

    So far, nothing too out there, a van, Prius, pickup truck, loading truck, 2 FJ Crusiers which would be cool.
    But once it comes out, twin fucking cybertruck transectors.
