WWJD - What would Jesus Drive?

Personally, I think he'd take public transit.

If he had to drive though, I picture him in a VW bug (not the new version). Maybe a VW camper van if he has to take the apostles along.

Father was a carpenter, mother didn't work....

Beat up Chevy Nova. :)

PS....I can't believe we're starting a thread based on a George Conklin a.p.u post!

I wondered where the idea for this thread came from...I figured EG was just a little bored.

Mike: Jesus piloting an H2 playing "Hair of the Dog" by Nazareth! There's your mental image of the day.

If he wants to drive everywhere he could walk, maybe he'd like to try the Amphicar. The car that swims!

Jesus would be like one of those guys you knew in college, who would buy one funky car that he liked, drive it around for a few months until he got bored, and then drive something else. For instance, he might drive an International Harvester Scout for a few, get tired of it because it's too big, and decide to pilot a Vespa scooter for a while. Eventually, though, he'll settle on an old Subaru.

He would have a bumper sticker that reads "WHAT WOULD I DO?"

I think Mastiff has it right. Jesus lived in a walkable community.

However, I am darn sure the devil drives one of these with Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein in the back seat:

I think the big guy would have been walking too-just something more dignified about it-more personable too.

Ya know i can see driving a hummer if you lived in say...Oman but come on they are on the streets here and they dont FIT.

slow, gas guzzeling, lane hogs.

but would i love to take one for a spin-YUPPPPP!

I had a chance to drive one in the Marines and was a passenger in one quite frequently, your not missing much. They've got a big bulky engine cowling between the driver and front passenger and are pretty uncomfortable. I can't see how you could make a civilian version much better. One good point was that the heater was not an option like in the USMC Jeeps.
If I lived "off the grid" and away from all roads maybe one would be helpful but I doubt it.
As for non-military applications: They're just a big stupid toy for people with more money than brains. Period.

Tranplanner: EG didn't make this one up. . .it is a REAL issue! Religious and environmental groups are getting together for a new ad campaign based on "What Would Jesus Drive."

Here is the link from CNN:

Or maybe I did make it up, then fed it to the 700 Club in a secret interfascist.net email and now my control of the extreme right-wing is firmly cemented! (insert maniacal laugh here) ;)

Next Subject: What What Would Jesus Shoot? I'm thinking he is an UZI man, what with his connection to the Holy Land an all.

He doesn't have to, he would just yell DAD! and a lighting bolt would strike the offending party.....

That's a wimpy pickup! Jesus would drive a REAL pickup, because He's a REAL AMERICAN! He'd want a vehicle that would make people stop, stare, and say "Good Lord!"

THOU ART RUGGED!

Dan,

That picture gives me an uneasy feeling. I'll bet if Detroit offers an SUV on those frames there are idiots out there that will think they need one...

Actually, Jesus would probably be driving an M-1 Abrams tank, purched by Isreal from America. He would have been mandatorily entered into Isreali military service, and would probably be gunning down Palistinians as we speak.

OK, it is possible that Jesus would have used a SUV and if that's the case here it is:
