Cars I Always Wanted

Whenever I was younger I always wanted loads of cars. My dad had a Volkswagen Beetle and my brother and I had VW hats (sad I know) and we would go to car shows and go around looking at all the beetles. My dad eventually sold that car and broke my heart…not really. I was about 6 and I probably had no clue. Then he got a VW Hatchback. I still don’t really know what this is. I just know he told us he had bought a purple car and then upset me when he brough a blue one home (he’s colour blind). Still had to go to loads of car shows.

The mixture of this and the fact that I am obsessed with films and cartoons just makes me want loads of cars which are replicas of ones in films/cartoons which I kinda always wanted. I want a beetle but not the icky new ones. I want one like Herbie. We saw one at those car shows. Actually we saw a few. It seems that more than one person has had this idea. Also after Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets came out I seemed to notice a lot of Ford Anglias. Doubt that this was anything to do with the film, but more to do with the fact that it meant that I now recognised them as Ford Anglias and my dad kept saying “There’s Harry Potter’s car!” and annoying me because it was Mr Weasley’s and I already knew that and probably spotted it a mile away. At one of the car shows they had actually put a Ford Anglia in a tree. It was amazing. I hope I can find the picture of it. I never knew where it went. My dad said he would put it in a frame but I don’t think he ever did. The Herbie one at those car shows would have been perfect if they hadn’t put paint splodges all over it. I don’t know why they did. It’s like those flower stickers you see that people have on their cars. Whoever owned Herbie had put very fake looking paint splodge stickers on him! If you’re going to get a replica you shouldn’t do that…ever.

I think I really want Herbie because I secretly think he’ll be like the actual Herbie and be able to think and move of his own accord haha. I also hope that people haven’t seen Herbie: Fully Loaded and not the originals. That’s like seeing the Scooby Doo movies and never seeing the cartoon…which brings me to my next point.

The Mystery Machine =]. Honestly, who wouldn’t want this?

Don’t have a lot to say about it. I’ve never seen one in real life. It mixes the fact that I want a car from a film/TV show but I also want a camper van. I think camper vans are cute. They also remind me of road trips in old movies.  Two things which I love. Also part of the reason why I’d like a camper van. To go on a road trip which we should do. Me and Tina said that we were going to get a pick-up truck and drive the whole way across America. The pick-up truck was her idea but kind of sucks cos it means we can’t take everyone or they’d have to go in a different car which would be pointless because the whole point in a road trip is to spend time with each other…on the road. I’d like to point out that the films I am thinking of where they go on road trips are not the ones where they get killed in the end although there are a lot of those too. I do think that if you had one though and you weren’t going on a road trip or were by yourself in it, you would feel lonely. Especially in the mystery machine. It would just remind me of the Scooby Doo movie when Fred, Daphne and Velma all quit and a year later it just shows Scooby and Shaggy in the van. It’s not right. Shaggy seemed to bring the most to Mystery Inc. to be honest. It seems he brought the van and the dog and in most episodes he finds the monsters. He is seriously underestimated in that gang.

Three wheeled vans=]. I only wanted one because they had one in Only Fools and Horses, It’s not even that pretty, only sits two people properly and as many in the boot as you can squish. This red ones quite nice though. So close to Postman Pat’s (it is the Royal Mail) but I can’t tell which one way first…or what the point is in only having three wheels. They’re kinda cute but kinda ugly and I kinda want one just cos its retro. If Only Fools and Horses is anything to go by (probably not) they’re not very reliable. There van always broke down but maybe that’s because they had no money to fix it properly or something.

DeLoreans. After seeing back to the future I think everyone wants one. Complete with Flux Capacitor. It isn’t worth getting one without it to be honest. The Doc was right when he said that making a time machine out of a DeLorean was in style. DeLoreans are amazing. I mean, they’re old but they’re a classic car and the doors go UP! How futuristic! Imagine if they made a DeLorean now?! I hope they don’t though. Minis and beetles have already been wrecked. I think I’d spend my life in that car drinking Pepsi and listening to Michael Jackson if I had one. Honestly, if I could live in a movie it would be that one. 80’s + Pepsi + Marty McFly = Epic epic win. Also, if I were Jennifer I wouldn’t get surgery/morph into someone else between the first and second films. And if my dad ever bought me a DeLorean, he had better buy me replicas of Marty’s Nike shoes and hat from BTTF2 to wear while I’m in it! Oh, and a hoverboard!

Whenever I was younger I imagine that I probably wanted Penelope Pitstop’s car from wacky racers. Looking at it now, I think it’s the ugliest car I’ve ever seen. Dick Dastardly’s is alright in comparison but I don’t think I want them anymore! Does the huge anthropomorphic dog come with it? Oh good, I’ll just tie him up in the…oh, there’s no boot? *Throws wierd dog thing overboard*

And last but not least, the Batmobile. Not much to say on it really. There are so many different versions but I like this one. I’d prefer a big dramatic wierd looking thing that a really fast sports car. I think my brother got it in a Happy Meal once so maybe that’s why.
