Nothing Seems Right In Cars....

The ChicagoCon has a new guest on the list.

the deLorean from Back To The Future.

Yes, they actually list it as a guest.  Now THAT'S an agent!

This "car" thing mostly gets a "meh" out of me.  I mean, I know cars are iconic and most guys love cars.  I just never got into them.  Remember, my dream car is a 1960 deSoto Adventurer.  Most guys will pick a Ferarri or something like that.

Cars and comics make odd bedfellows.  I was at the ChicagoCon when the "Spawnmobile", a funny car styled like Todd McFarlane's character, debuted.  A guy self-publishing a comic called Pigeonman, The Bird Brain aped it with his Pigeonmobile, which I believe was the same make, model, and year as the Deathcoaster.  San Diego is about to get underway, and Ecto 1 (from Ghostbusters) and Black Beauty (from Green Hornet) are being brought in.

So, we Chicagoans get the deLorean.

Sorry, but there is only one pop culture car that would make me squee.  Well, three.  The second is the jet car from Buckaroo Banzai.  I hear it runs on pure awesome.  The third is the Tux Racer.  But the first is the General Lee.

So, let's put it to a vote.  Which would you rather have your picture taken with?
