Last Call: Han Parked First Edition

han & chewie
I don’t know, a Jeep seems like a legit holder of a Chewie plate, but a Matrix for Han Solo? What do you think would be a more appropriate ride for our favorite space pirate?

    When I had both my Laverda (big, goofy, orange motorcycle) and my Honda CB-1 (small, twitchy, blue motorcycle) I referred to them collectively as Rocky and Bullwinkle.

      Props for having owned a CB-1. You have good taste in motorcycles.

        Always wanted one, had one, regret selling it. It was a one-owner bike when I got it in 1999. It had five hundred miles on the clock at that point. Frikkin’ unicorn of a bike.

          Indeed!

      Wait, what? You sold the Laverda?!
      Edit to add: Gotta second Tanshanomi’s props on the CB-1. Those things are fantastic, and I lament their brief appearance in the US.

        Hah! No, I still have the Laverda. My CB-1 only briefly shared parking with it. Tuition, winter, and outdoor parking conspired to make me cut the CB-1 loose, and stow the Laverda in my sister’s garage for a few years.

          I’d gotten the sense over the years that you’re unlikely to ever part with it, and wondered what happened. Good to know it’s still yours.

    I think the Matrix could work, but only if it was the XRS (she may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts), which this doesn’t appear to be.

    Obligatory…It doesn’t look like much but it’ll do the Kessel run in 12 parsecs.

      (this is a Ford, but not actually a Falcon)

    A neighbor has his and hers custom plates – hers is “Agent P”, his is “Dr. Doof”. Parents of kids who are now teens and grew up watching Disney Channel will understand the reference.

      His and hers plates which are a well known sight to drivers on London’s Chelsea Embankment:

      (Over the years the cars have changed — a google search shows some of the variations — and some days, disappointingly, they park the wrong way round…)

    If I were a space pirate I would definitely drive a CTS-V coupe, black of course.
    Or the new Prius.

    If I could find a photograph of it (or at least the registration), I’d post what I had on my 1977 Renault LeCar – it was ‘LEPLATE’.

    Something not pretty but very fast and can haul cargo. I nominate the Ford Transit 150 with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. I had the opportunity to drive one recently. Insanely fast (because it’s the most powerful Transit engine in the lightest Transit body), not exactly pretty, and can haul a LOT. Also handles and steers shockingly well, something that the Millennium Falcon also excels at.

      You’re on the right track, but the Falcon was rough, ratty, and of dubious ownership. The Transit will absolutely qualify in 10-15 years, but for now, I nominate a Dajiban (also, I just love the Dajiban).
