Re: Themes you'd like to see done

How about a Red Green carbureted car?

Or a Red Green backhoe?

Dude's built more cars than Spank or Speedycop.  I'm sure there's some good ideas in there.

Bonus points if your theme involves two K-cars made into one.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

One K-car would be cool.  Two of them (that appear to be) duct taped together would be truly magnificent.  Four wheel steer, all wheel drive.  Oh yeah.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Haven't seen the movie, nor read the book, but I like the first line:

"Ove is fifty-nine. He drives a Saab."

and later:

"Ove's devotion and brand loyalty to the company's Swedish roots is so steadfast that he ceases purchasing new cars after the General Motors acquisition, choosing instead to retain his dark blue 1998 Saab 9-5 Wagon model"

Has anyone done a SOLID Rick and Morty yet?

Or a Norton I, Emperor of the United States and protector of Mexico theme?

You know what would be cool? A Stroker and Hoop theme, with a Chevy Monza as C.A.R.R.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

the whole time I watched a video on RWB / Akira Nakai all I could think of is Spank taking a saw to the roof of a mini van. Pretty much the same thing right? some good elements of a theme in the making with the leather chair, coke bottles, and cigs.

Not Spank, Sasha from Sputnik is the one who chopped the roof off the mini van.

Spank...goats, chickens and Harley powered Prius

Sasha...Cuts off roofs and sometimes puts them back on...races hopeless Nissans

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Some solid ideas.

Re: Themes you'd like to see done

Douchebags, Drive-ins, and Dives?
In a red convertible?
And everyone dresses up like Guy Fieri....with the hair and cheap bling..?
And brings food!  and neon signs

(although maybe this was done already....?)

And then post it on the internet to try to get a cease-and-desist order?

By the way, how many teams have had themes so good that they got a cease and desist order?
I think there have been a few that got letters from companies?
(Maybe an idea for a Lemons World episode, or Blog entry?)

There have been a few C&D orders issued...The memorable ones were 'F'ed Up' (done up in FedEx livery)
and 'Spinnin'Out' ( a parody of In-n-Out Burgers)....but the most famous one was the Homer car made famous by The Simpsons.

Fox heard about it a promptly sicced the army of lawyers on them,cease and desist,the whole nine yards...until Matt Groening,the creator of the show,exercised his rights and called it off.He not only endorsed the idea,but invited the race team to come to the Fox studios ,take a tour,meet the creative team,and even autographed the cars fender
