What vehicle/s that you've never driven would you love to, given the oppurtunity?

Asked by ucme (39602 points ) December 11th, 2010

Make that driven or piloted, skippered. Basically you’re in control of, behind the wheel so to speak. Anything goes for this one, be it a particular make of car or bike or an extreme example like maybe a tank or helicopter. No limits to your transport controlling imaginations. Hell who knows, perhaps you wouldn’t mind piloting the space shuttle! I dunno see, that’s why i’m asking =)

Anything faster than my Pontiac, because there are too many to list.

I loved my Nissan Maxima so I would like to drive an Infiniti.

I have also driven cabin cruisers so I would love to skipper a large ship.

A classic Jaguar and, my ultimate fantasy fun car, a Nash Metropolitan.

I DID get a ride in a Cobra once, on a racetrack. FUN!

I would love to drive a working version of the Mac 5… complete with saw blades and submarine functionality intact.

If that’s unrealistic, then the Oscar Meyer Weiner Mobile or original Batmobile would do.

A steam train.

@Lightlyseared – Just don’t forget to turn your exhaust blower on before you enter a tunnel… I killed myself in MSTS so many times by forgetting that detail whilst driving the Flying Scotsman or the Orient Express…

Rush hour traffic would be so much fun.

An Apollo spacecraft
A 12-meter yacht
An unlimited hydrofoil racer
Gypsy Moth IV or Tinkerbelle or Yankee Girl
The French TGV train
A subway train
A Cat 8 bulldozer
A few of these things

@ucme I Don’t even have to think about it, my dream vehicle was, is, and always will be this in my dreams I’m in the passenger seat though, being driven by the wonderful Mr Thaw, tragically though now sadly gathered from this world. I’ll be a Morse fan till the day I die, there still isn’t a drama on screen to match it, although Lewis just ooooozes quality (and a glorious soundtrack by Barrington Pheloung) and comes really close, I may be a little biased though :-)

one of those machines that transports space shuttle take off pads. or whatever….i saw it on dirty jobs. it’s called a “crawler” i think. it goes 1 mph.

ucme's avatar

@bunnygrl I’m sure you’d look like a cool cat behind the wheel of that, well….cool cat! :¬)
@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard With you on the Jeep. I want one soooooo badly I can taste the damn thing.

TexasDude's avatar

@ucme, I’m planning on getting a Jeep like this as soon as I save up enough money, but there was a guy in my area who was selling a Willys Jeep from the Korean War like the one in the other picture for $300. It needed a ton of work, though, but that would have been awesome.

ucme's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Now that’s what I call a bargain! I mean they just ooze ubercoolness in spades.

bunnygrl's avatar

@ucme I still have a jigsaw upstairs which is an art drawing of Morse and Lewis standing talking to a mechanic at a garage, with the Jaguar nearby of course. The image is really stunning and made all the nicer by the fact that the mechanic in his overalls is clearly Colin Dexter, creator of Morse, who famously had a Hitchcock like cameo in all of the episodes. I met him once during a promotional tour for the last ever Morse novel, he is just the sweetest, loveliest man, and I was lucky enough to be able to chat to him for a while. Talk about dreams come true lol, I was a happy, happy bunny.

@Cruiser Oh yeah, I hear she’s a very good ride…....ahem, err…the car I mean! Phew, got away with that one, just :¬)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

I’d have fun on an open course, driving something that’s super fast. Anything really, I just love the speed.

I also miss my old Toyota MR2, so I’d have fun driving an MR2 Spyder around town.

Fred931's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I was going to say that nucleon wasn’t a word if I didn’t decide to Google it before looking like an asshat.

HungryGuy's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard – Ah, the Ford Nucleon… Have an accident, kill everyone in the neighborhood. “Excellent!” says Mr. Burns.
