lord vader, your wonky british sportscar is ready

Several years ago, GM ran a series of ads for its then-new Chevy Caprice Impala that read "Lord Vader, your car is ready." The all-black Impala certainly looked the part, and the ad was catchy enough that a whole generation of Star Wars and Chevy fanboys latched on to the idea, asking each other (on a fairly regular basis) "what would Vader drive"?

It's sort of the "Godwin's Law" of automotive forums, and the guys at Kinod Photography seem to finally have an answer: Darth Vader would drive an Ariel Atom.

Not my cup of tea, but neither is Star Wars. Original Chevy ad below.
