Hi there! For those who don’t know me, my name is Kayleigh and I am an avid geek.
As I have progressed in age, I now focus a lot of my attention not only on characters and storyline within a fandom, but the amazing modes of transportation they use. (I also bought and drive Bumblebee simply because I was a huge fan of the first Transformers movie.) So whereas it was much easier to acquire a Camaro that I had painted in the same yellow with black stripes as a specific transforming robot, there are some fandom vehicles I will never have a chance to drive. I figured to cope with the disheartening fact that I will never captain the Starship Enterprise, here is my list of top 5 vehicles that I dream about piloting.
1. The TARDIS
Hands down, the number one vehicle I would LOVE to travel in is the TARDIS. I mean, COME ON! All of time and space?! All of it?? How could you NOT want to take that baby out for a spin? Just call me River Song, because I’m manning this ship without a Doctor on board.
2. Millennium Falcon
Okay, tell me how cool it would be to fly around in the fastest ship in the galaxy? SO COOL. We’ve seen this baby maneuver asteroid fields, Tie-fighters, and the Death Star. I think it’s safe to say the fastest ship also seems like the SAFEST ship. I’d trust Han Solo with my life any day.
3. The Delorean Time Machine
Back to the Future has consistently been my go-to movie for years. I can remember growing up and longing for a Delorean so that I could travel through time just like Marty and the Doc. Little did I know, actual Delorean’s DON’T currently offer time travel as an option. But hey, a girl can dream.
4. The Weasley’s Flying Car
You can’t tell me that driving around in a powder blue Ford Anglia that has the ability to FLY doesn’t sound awesome! Oh, traffic getting you down? Time to whip out your wand, throw on your robes, and take to the skies! Just watch out for any Whomping Willows that may be nearby.
5. Captain Shakespeare’s Flying Ship
I’m not sure how many of you have seen Stardust, but it’s amazing and this ship is amazing and EVERYTHING about this movie is amazing. That being said, I want to be part of Robert Di Niro’s crew of lightning harnessing pirates. TAKE ME ABOARD.
My tastes clearly range in size and abilities. No one vehicle can be compared to another, since they all seem to have their own wicked cool features! Alas, for right now, all us geeky folk can do is wait until science (or aliens) bring us something similar to ride around in. I don’t know about you, but I’m still waiting for the full-blown BTTF hover-board to be released! Call me when it can hover on water. What are some of your favorite geeky vehicles?
