    Here's an idea I've been batting around in my head.
    Sorta like the Rate A Car topic, except instead of rating cars, we try to match fictional characters with GT2 cars.

    For example, I'll start us off: Mario.
    We all love him, but who would he campaign for in GT2? That Red Fire might be a good go-kart, but it'd get creamed.
    So...WHAT WOULD HE DRIVE?!

    Mario would drive something totally goofy, totally fast, but not too fast. I'm thinking it'd the Subaru 360 fully modded with stage 2 turbo and super-close gear ratios!

    Next character: Laura Croft of Tomb Raider....

    Spell it right: Crash Bandicoot.

    He'd pick something with a lot of jump in it, and maybe a little wacky.
    I'm thinking...Subaru SVX S4? Fully modded?

    Next up: Spiderman (because he doesn't have another car!)

    Now would be a good time to see Lara going topless in a MX5.

    Dihatsu Midget II, because it's faster than his old car! :lol:

    I wonder which car Asuka Sohryu from NGE would drive. Something flamboyant, I'm thinking, and probably German.

    Hmmm, well I was thinking something not German, but go ahead and tell us what you were thinking. Asuka is technologically aware, seems to love danger and probably gets bored easily. What better car to escape danger with and still look stylish than the Acura NSX (again, fully modded with a gold paint job and silver Yokohama rims).

    Next Character..this one is real frickin' easy: AUSTIN POWERS!!!

    Austin Powers would drive the E-type Jag. Is it in the game? I haven't played it in ages.

    Next, Homer Simpson

    Yup! He could be in an Aston Martin or (obviously) the Mini Cooper.

    next characters: CHEECH & CHONG

    Hmmm... Homer would probably drive something similar to the car he designed for his brother, Herb Powell.
    I'm thinking Chrysler (sp?) Phaeton.

    We'll it would have to be a Van, but I can only think of the Renault Espace.... which might be a bit quick for them. Again the Daihatsu Midget would be appropriate me thinks.

    next: Sydney Bristow

    Any CIA agent has to be driving something that's non-descript, but will plant the power down when necessary. It should have 4-wheel drive just in case her latest mission takes her off road. I'm voting for the Subaru Impreza...something with around 300 -400 hp. Too much power might attract too much attention, after all...

    next character: SNOOP DOGG

    Well, if you've played GT3, it would have to be a silver (and black) S2000.

    On the other hand, staying in the spirit of this silly thread, I'll say the '67 Plymouth GTX.

    I don't play many other video games, so let's see...What would Sherlock Holmes drive?

    Dragons dont need cars, but maybe if they're cute and addicted to collecting gems they might need one to hold all those gems. It would have to be something out of anime...fairy-talish... only thing that comes to mind would be one of the K-vans, like the Suzuki WAgon R Aero. Yeah, I know it's not fast, but dragons can fly. Do they really need to go any faster in a car?

    Next character: CHRIS REDFIELD...the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team meathead who accompanies Jill Valentine in Resident Evil...

    Ah...good one. Link is a little box-headed character who would feel totally comfortable behind the wheel of a bunch of little boxy cars. I vote for the Ford Ka! Neon Green, lean & mean.

    Next character: DONALD TRUMP

    No way! Donald wouldn't know what to do behind the wheel of a real racing car, although he could sponsor one if he wanted to. I was thinking he'd drive a Mercedes or something-the most expensive one, of course.

    Anyways, I just did an internet search on Michel Vaillant and got a bunch of french websites. I have no idea who he or she is, so I"m passing this one along...

    MICHEL VAILLANT

    it was a french strip about Vaillant (Team Vaillant) and his opponents (Team Leader). They were always racing to eachother and always Team Vaillant won :sly:
    I guess it would be a racing modificated Clio V6,in blue :dunce:

    Espace F1 seems to suit a pretend nebbish.

    Next character? How about...
    Chyna (Joanie Laurer)

    Woody in an Espace? I don't know...it might be too fast and give him too much anxiety!
    Even tho Chyna is a lady, she wouldn't be caught dead driving anything feminine. No, nothing cute for her. I'm thinking a black Dodge Viper RT/10, customized for interior room height so that she could drive it and her big, manly body wouldn't be poking out of the top.

    Next Character: GEORGE BUSH
