The evil geniuses at Rockstar Games finally got me to pull the trigger on ‘Grant Theft Auto Online’ last night, as I realizes that a recent expansion pack introduced the Scramjet, a very obvious clone of Speed Racer’s Mach 5.  Of course, to get my jet-shaped flying car, I’m gonna have to actually play the game and earn like FOUR MILLION bucks, which seems like a lot given that my introduction to the game was being nuked from the sky by an experienced player on a flying motorcycle (y”know, for funsies), leading to today’s aerial-combat query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)  notes that the game also has The Batmobile, KITT and Doc Brown’s flying DeLorean, asking: What flying car (hopping or turbo-boosting counts for our purposes) reigns supreme in your heart?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I have to rule out KITT, because it doesn’t quite qualify in my mind. So, its Tracks. A flying Corvette/Autobot.

  2. Daniel Langsdale on

    When I think of cars jumping/flying through the air, my first thought always goes to a certain orange Dodge Charger with a signature clarion call sounding forth from the horn: the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard.

        I’m not sure that the roof is any more problematic than the name of the car or the song that the horn plays. Since the me-that-was had less than zero knowledge or understanding of those issues, my heart’s memory still holds fondness for the Duke boys’ adventures.

  3. Lola from Agents of Shield. A flying red convertible oozes style.
    Too bad the writers pretty much forgot about her for most of the series.
