What are the Five Fictional Vehicles I’d Love To Travel In ?
I actually found it hard to pick only 5! You see; I was born in the late 70s, and ‘grew up’ in the 80s; a time when, I think you’ll agree, a lot of Sci-Fi was at its peak.
I mean, it’s 2015; we should have those hover-boards from Back To The Future by now. As a form of transportation, that’s almost a vehicle, right? Then of course, that brings us to The DeLorean; which I have now discounted from my 5 favourite Fictional vehicles; but only because I COULD buy one on ebay (of course, I’d then have to build a flux capacitor…)
For the same reason, I have crossed K.I.T.T. (Michael Knight’s talking, tech-filled Pontiac Trans Am in Knight Rider) off my list. (True Story: my OH has an old Uni buddy who drives a KITT replica. He even has the scanner sound effect.)
Another one that narrowly missed a spot was the helicopter from Airwolf, I really wanted to be Stringfellow Hawke when I grew up.
So, what DID make it onto the list??? Find out below!
5. Okay, I know; it’s a car. BUT, it’s from Harry Potter, it’s magical AND it flies. Who wouldn’t want an enchanted flying car?
My parents actually had 2 Ford Anglias, a (very basic! according to my mother) white one in the late 60s and then a much posher white one with a dark green roof in the 70s.
4. The refitted NCC-1701-A was ‘my’ Enterprise, as it was around that time that i really got in to Star Trek.
3. I adored the A-Team when I was a kid. I loved how, no matter the situation, they always managed to be trapped somewhere that just happened to have a supply of things they could use to build an escape plan or complete a rescue mission.
Someone drives around our town in an adorable little Mini Bedford van with the iconic grey, black & red paint-job. It’s the cutest thing ever.
2. The Millennium Falcon was my first spaceship. In my eyes, Harrison Ford will always be; first and foremost; Indy but his escapades as the smuggler Han Solo come as a close second. I prefer the original trilogy to the newer films but I’m intrigued to see where they go next…
And so, without further ado,
In first place:
The Tardis; because really, who could resist a spin with a man in a blue box?
