    Well I guess you can never have too much time on your hands.... www.shawnandcolleen.com/shawn/Pages/hwing/ I wonder if he rubbed petroleum jelly on the wheels to make them disappear, since that's what George did.

    Personally, I think it shows a lot of creativity.

    Would I do that to my car? No.

    But this guy has created something that is one-of-a-kind and is pretty nifty. At least to him. And he has the guts to post it on the web...gotta give him kudos for that...I've already heard jokes about "Star Wars Kid getting a new car"

    Rob, visit the rest of his site before you judge him. He's happily married, and appears to be in his 30's. (Sorry...don't mean to be bitchy, but as a long-time Star Trek fan, I get tired of the geek-not-getting-women stereotype, ya know?)

    His wife...the one in the Elvira dress.

    More up-to-date photos... he added R2.

    Like I said..not my cup of tea, but I gotta give him props for guts and originality. At least he isn't using a park-bench for a spoiler or something. [​IMG]

    The R2 helmet looks really well made.

    I guess he's actually going to have a photo of him and the car in an upcoming issue of "Wired". [​IMG]

    Man, I gotta up my geekness quotient, if it gets you that kinda publicity. [​IMG]

    In those updated pics... gotta dig the huge blasters (and accompanying scorch marks) on the side of the car. Wonder what the police think of that? [​IMG]

    EDIT: Just looked again. He has "thermal detonators" in his cargo web! [​IMG]

    I give him props for doing this. Everyone else is so concerned about having their Toyota Camry look just like everyone elses Camry nowadays.
    Plus, his gal is pretty hot.

    Mmm, maybe hot was not the right word to use. I was in a hurry.
    More like, Man, she sure is stacked.
