I've just finished watching a TV programme titled, "What Would Jesus Drive?"

Sadly, it is a biased (think Michael Moore) anti-car programme made by a UK director who has shamelessly encouraged well meaning US citizens make fools of themselves in front of his camera and added a twist of the knife in the editing room. No wonder journalists have a bad name. Still, at least it was better than Big Brother.

Anyway, it being Friday and all that I thought it might be a good thought starter for a light-hearted thread. Keep it civil and respectful, but please, let me hear your thoughts on the question: What Slot Car Would Jesus* Drive? And why.

Remember, keep it respectful.

*replace with deity of your choosing.

Oh, apparently Jesus would drive a Toyota Prius (low emissions so good for the planet) although I did like the pro-SUV guy who said Jesus - being a carpenter with 12 close friends and associates - would probably need the biggest SUV he could find!

It would have to be an OCA VW caravanette. They were afterall known as Jesus wagons back in the 60's

It is also known that Jesus rode a donkey, so I think he would drive a 8 year old skoda, and through all sense of cool and economy to the wind

Well I'm sure he rode horses (mules/donkeys/asses/whatever), so would it be a vintage Scalextric 'Horse'?

Alfetta had a good idea too, I'm pretty sure it'd be a camper van.

And on another thought... if he could perform miracles, would he drive a leaning Moto GP bike?

Oh, and one more.... how about a Diablo?

Any type of classic British roadster - maybe He could make it reliable!!


Or follow Bruce Almighty's example and go for the Saleen (I would if I was Him!)

Depends upon your definition of who Jesus was really

Jesus as self-employed carpenter - Ford Sierra Estate, tax optional.

Jesus as religious cult leader - Lexus, paid for from mysterious sources of wealth.

Jesus as Jewish chap - Volvo 240 Estate.

On the other subject of the program itself I thought that show was summed up by contrasting the 24 mpg of the Model T Ford with the 14 mpg Hummer as if to say "look we've all gone backwards!".

What that failed to point out that was since modern cars will generally comfortably cruise at twice the speed of the Tin Lizzy, even if they do a(what is by modern standards very poor) 24 mpg they are immediately twice as efficient. Twice the speed, same fuel. And a Hummer to Model T is not even a like for like comparison - why not look at the economy and cleaniness of the modern equivalent which is probably a Ford Focus, Toyota Corolla, Opel Astra etc.

And how much crude oil did it cost to ship a Channel 4 film crew over to the US on a big airliner and then ferry them all around the states?

Very droll sir....


On second thoughts though, and with a recent viewing of "Jerry Springer : The Opera" in mind I'm tempted to say a Ford Street Ka that he bought after seeing Kylie in the promotional pictures and that replaced his earlier Pug 206CC.

Jesus can drive whatever he feels like, and on the track he would no doubt, be un-stoppable!!


BTW, was that show hosted/narrated by a woman who speaks like the hollywood Transylvanian vampire of yore? If it was, well, you get the drift...... :angel
People like that inspire some of my most-lengthy philosophical tirades (but not now). (Still, summary beating,,,,,hmmmm)

My suspicion is that Jesus would drive a hotrod!


The only proof I have is from Ministry's 1992 record with the song "Jesus built my hotrod" and hell - if I haven't seen a guy's own rod I'm sure not going to let him build mine.

Besides - I think hotrods quite divine..

Why would he need to drive, all he had to is appear where he wanted to be or was needed.

Beyond the normal mortal needs eh!

Alain Prost died and went to heaven. Upon seeing St Peter at the pearly gates he asked Peter what he was to do after he entered. St Peter replied, " This is heaven, you have lived a good life and you'll be rewarded by being able to do as you please for an eternity. What specifically would you like to do?"

Alain replied, " you know, just for once, I would like to race a Formula one car without being constantly hounded by a yellow helmet filling my little mirrors.!"

"No Problem" said Peter. " Just walk down to the race track and someone will take care of you"

Alain arrived at the track and was astonished to see a McLaren travelling at break neck speed, on two wheels around every corner and outbreaking every other car on the track. The driver was indeed wearing a yellow helmet. Alain quickly marched up to the track marshall and said, " Hey , I was told Senna wasn't going to be here!"

The track marshall replied" Oh, thats not Ayrton in the Mclaren, it's God! He just likes to think he's Senna!"

Seriously, all this speculation. God has a car.., its a FORD!

I've heard driving a great car at the absolute limit described as a religious experience so why wouldn't he.

BLASPHEMER!!!!! Everybody knows that God drives a Commodore. I"ve seen it written on signs at Bathurst

I noticed that the Good Lord sponsored Larry Geddes' 2002 Marconi Charity Foundation for Kids proxy race winner. No doubt He knew that the race proceeds were for a good cause.



Kind regards

Since his father rides a Harley, Jesus slotcar must be a MotoGP Bike.
Of course it would lean over like it should, not stay upright like the ones they sell us mortals.

Talking of Harleys and sort of on topic....

QUOTE The inventor of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle, Arthur Davidson, died and went to heaven. At the gates, St. Peter told Arthur, "Since you've been such a good man and your motorcycles have changed the world, your reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want in Heaven."

Arthur thought about it for a minute and then said, "I want to hang out with God."

St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room, and introduced him to God.

God recognized Arthur and commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented motorcycles, eh?!"

Arthur said, "Yeah, that's me..."

God commented: "Well, what's the big deal in inventing something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and pollution, and can't run without a road?!"

Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally spoke, "Excuse me, but aren't you the inventor of woman?"

God said, "Ah, yes."

"Well," said Arthur, "professional to professional, you have some major design flaws in your invention:
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end protrusion;
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds;
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much;
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust;
5. And the maintenance costs are outrageous!!"

"Hmmmm, you may have some good points there," replied God, "hold on."

God went to his Celestial super-computer, typed in a few words and waited for the results. The computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.

"Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed," God said to Arthur, "but according to these numbers, more men are riding my invention than yours.

TIme to go into hiding again!
