"...Red 5 standing by..." Kate Horn documents her love and creation of the X-Wing Toyota Tercel. Note the license plate people, she's out on the road, armed with blasters and quiet possibly, the Force.

With talent like that, she'll be snapped up for professional work in no time.

Go girl.

I remember seeing something similar, but it was a Honda del Sol. Can't find much on it anymore, except this.

Ah, I see they got farked. Still, here is another shot of Shawn Crosby's car.

Fools! Nothing can compare to the awesome fury of the Dalek car!

armed with blasters
And, more to the point, actual guns.

That's a little weird.

Dalek, or Phallic?

There are no insults harsh enough.

um, yeah.

Seriously, despite having the same model of car as mine (a tercel) and a Toyota rather then an evil Honda. This is like 1/16th as cool as the star wars car that cropped up a couple of days ago. It just looks like a car that's been spray painted with "burn" marks. Not nearly as cool as the H-wing.

I'm surprised that no one has noted that is this one of the most butt-ugly, hard-to-read sites I've encountered in quite some time. She seems interesting, sort of, and can write, sort of, but I'll not be back. I owe my eyes that much.

Since when is hot linking images in MeFi threads cool?

ironically, clicking your link makes it worse.

Ignore the pictures of her in camo with a gun, the best shots are of her in black spandex with a puny lightsaber:

She needs to give michael jackson his shin pads back too.

it's not hot-linked, it's in-line

what? it's uncool whatever you wanna call it.

I think I'm scared, but I can't be sure.

Where does R2-D2 go?

Her own comment is worth noting: "I did it for a laugh". Good for her; I only wish I'd been more willing to follow my own whims for a laugh when I was her age.

I'd hit it.

the H-wing, links to great images of a car complete with R2-D2. :)

Looks like an awful lot of wasted energy on a Star Wars geek who likes to shoot guns.

And mojohand is right, its a terribly formatted and nearly impossible to read site.

Seems like the H-wing guy and her should get together,
start their own little fleet.
