Top 5: Retro Modes of Transportation


Each Tuesday I do a quick “Top 5” list, and instead of doing some kind of big write up, I do it in pictures instead.  I’d love to see others join in the fun as well and chime in on the same topic on your own site, social channel, Instagram, podcast, or wherever you share your opinions online.  I’ll be posting under the tag #Top 5, so if you do the same we can all see everyone else’s list.

This week, it’s my Top 5 Favorite Retro Modes of Transportation.  Let’s go to the list…..


Flying Delorean

Flying Delorean

What is cooler than a car that can fly, AND take you anywhere in time you want to go.  This is easily #1 on this list.




Here is another cool car.  This one with weapons and A.I., and a sense of humor.  Plus, it’s a pretty sweet looking ride!


A-Team Van

A-Team Van

That is one bad-ass ride!  Vans have fallen out of favor in the last 20 years, but I would still roll in one today if it looked like that.


BJ and the Bear Big Rig

This one hung around the top of my list for a few years when I was a kid.  Well, this, and the General Lee.  I had a Matchbox set of this rig and played with it daily.


General Lee Power Cycle


General Lee Big Wheel

If it were still an acceptable mode of transport, I’d ride it to work everyday.


So what about you? What were some of YOUR favorite modes of transportation from the past?   If you don’t want to jump in fully on social media, then chime in in the comments section below.  I want to see what fads you were really into too!
