Shuttlecraft Smart Car
 
Who else wants to see one of these wrapped to look like an Enterprise-D shuttle? :D

Heh, I remember minivans in the early 90's looking a lot like shuttles. :D

Pics or it didn't happen.

In college, I lived across the hall from a guy who drove an old Dodge Omni or some similar hatchback. It was grey with a red stripe poorly painted down the side. I saw that car for a couple years before someone informed me it was supposed to be an X-Wing. . . Apparently the dude had grand plans to add an R2 Dome on top and such, but never got around to it.

Ah, the 90's, an age when the mini-van was king...here are a few random pics to celebrate.

'Shuttle' Van 1
'Shuttle' Van 2
'Shuttle' Van 3

In HS I drove a blue Dodge Caravan with wood grain paneling, those were the days...

This van was converted to a TOS shuttle and taken to Burning Man

Hmmm, for the Smart Car, wouldn't the Type 15 Shuttlepod be closer?

Early 90s?? I saw one just a few months ago! It was from the Yeager, as I recall...

If you have a death wish, buy a smart car. Those things wouldn't survice much of an impact, let along a serious accident. However, it will crumple to the point where it would be like being buried inside of a soup can.

Indeed. Every time I see a 'Smart Car' next to an 18-wheeler, I gasp.
