Some people don’t believe me, but before I was a comic book nerd, I had a thing for cars, especially never-produced concept cars and the custom work of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth.  My dream ride was Mysterion, a bubble-topped roadster with a shag carpeted interior, a built-in color TV and twin V-8 hot rod engines in the front.  It was a car that looked as much like a moon buggy as any sort of automobile, and it’s final fate (parted out after disuse, with no documentation of the vehicle specs to be found) is a sad one, leading to today’s wistful, yet automotive query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) would love a classic 1966 Batmobile or a Sunbeam Tiger, if only I would fit in their driver’s seat, asking: If price were no option, what would be YOUR dream ride?

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.
