Have You Seen This Car?

Anime-themed cars have long been an unreachable dream for otaku in the western world. Short of plushies, stickers, and other merchandise fans can scrounge up at a con, they are nothing compared to this Hello Kitty creation from Mitsubishi, or many others that have been created to promote other, popular series. We read a news story out of Wisconsin about a 2003 Mitsubishi that has a caricature of Sailor Moon over the exhaust manifold. Were any of you there? We'd love to see a picture of what this looked like (it must have been neat since it was newsworthy)! Question for everyone though, if your car could be anime themed, which show and which car would you pick and how would you want it designed?

Well of course the show I would pick would be Sailor Moon! That's a no-brainer, but as far as the car and how it would be designed... I'm not sure. Maybe a yellow VW with odango or something? Lol

My car (An Aspen) would be a giant mix of several anime, and some cute poses, like...

Sailor Moon's Henshin Pose for the Eternal Form

The poses just before the end of the Hare Hare Yukai that Haruhi, Miyuku and Yuki strike (Miyuku's hands on her chest, Yuki's hands on her shoulders, and Haruhi pointing) from the Melacholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Konata, Miyuki, Tsukasa and Kagami when they say "FREEZE!" in the opening sequence of Lucky Star

Goku's Kamehameha wave from Dragon Ball Z

The Ouran High School Host Club with their roses. *-*

And, finally, Chiyo and Osaka from Azumanga Daioh flying, with Osaka having Chiyo's pigtails. XD
