Cartoons – Speed Buggy

Roger Dodger, Speed Buggy article ready to go! Vroom-a-zoom-zoom! Ah Speed Buggy one of the most beloved cartoon tv cars of the late 70′s. Even though I was born in the 80′s doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy re-runs of the show. Not to be confused Scooby Doo, the show Speed Buggy was about a teenage cartoon detective team created by Hanna Barbara. If you’ve seen the show you would know the car Speed Buggy came to life after Tinker and gang built him. The opening credits does a great job of explaining the origin of the crazy car. Some say Herbie the love bug was the inspiration for the car. But where did the voice come from? That was none other than Hanna Barbara’s Mel Blanc, voice to famous characters such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and more. Check out the opening credits.

Famous Jumps – Dukes of Hazzard – Seney Hall

Not always, but in some cases where there are tv/movie cars, jumps are sure to follow. The Dukes of Hazzard show is no exception. We’ve decided to include a new segment on our blog about famous car jumps in tv and movies. We’ve entitled this feature “Famous Jumps.” What better way to kick off this new series than the Dukes of Hazzard! Our first jump pays tribute to the famous flight of the General Lee, LEE 1. You may remember our “First Look” post on the General Lee, LEE 1. One of the first General Lees used in the production of the show.

2011 BMW Isetta – Would Steve Urkel Approve?

Not long ago LeftLaneNews.com did an article about the new 2011 BMW Isetta Concept. You may remember our earlier article about Steve’s infamous love affair with not only Laura Winslow, but his not-so attractive funny looking BMW Isetta. Never the less Steve had car love bigger than the Volkswagen Beatle. After seeing the new concept, I had to ask “Would Steve Urkel Approve?” Let’s look at the differences shall we?

The first striking feature is the fact the car has two doors. There is no large single door on the front. Granted I can understand. The single door on the front may not be the safest thing in the world. The wheel base appears a little longer. Nothing wrong with a little extra nerdy leg room. Engine? The new Isetta will feature a full zero emissions electric motor setup. On a single charge the car will be able to go a 100 miles. Gas and diesel engines will be optional later in life cycle. I guess Steve and Laura would have a hard time making that trip to Cincinnati from Chicago huh?

So would Steve Urkel approve? Given the “nerdy/tech” appeal of the car, I would think so. He’d be grin’n with his spenders all the way to the BMW dealership. Another chance for him to own a Isetta. If you recall, Steve’s went over a cliff as he nearly escaped with his life. I wish him well! Got a nerdy car story for us? Let us know on our forums! Did I do that?

Gone In Sixty Seconds (2000) – Shopping List

Can you remember the names of any of the 50 ladies from Gone In Sixty Seconds (2000)? I’m sure you can remember at least Eleanor. Not to mention Sway played by Angelina Jolie. But she’s not on the list. But ya get my point. I found a copy of the list that was once on the promo site. If you remember from the movie they gave the cars, girls names to help cover their conversation on the 2 way radios. Another interesting trick was the use of Invisible UV Marking Ink Pensto help hide the list. It was very affective until Detective Castlebeck finds the pieces of the black light left behind. Guys and girls have often named their cars girl’s names. What do you call your ride? Let us know in the forums or comment. Till next time, don’t use aerosol cans in unapproved ways. Castlebeck’s watching ya Memphis Rains!

The Wonder Years – 1968 Dodge Polara Wagon

Buying a new car as an adult is a battle between buyer and salesperson. But to a kid, it seems like a mere simple exchange of paper work and keys. At least that’s what Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years thought. The third season, episode three of The Wonder Years takes place in late 1969. As entitled “The Family Car” the family maintains a constant struggle with their car. It’s become unreliable and not to mention ugly to Kevin.
