Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Become Cabbies

The mysterious Brickshelfer Legohaulic has built again! It was built for a contest on the shadowy "Saber Scorpion Lair Forum". Alas, the forum doesn't allow the unregistered to browse (read: lurk) its threads. I'd consider joining if red text on a black background didn't scare me so much.

As for the MOC, I like it. Now, I have a well-known aversion to automobiles generally, with a few exceptions. Fortunately, that doesn't extend to hovercars. The engines are nice and oversized, (or is it that the cab is undersized?) it has dual subspace antennae, (or are they overhead curb feelers?) and even tailfins! Yeah!!!

The MOC's Achilles Heel seems to be its transparent elements. Transparent red, green, clear, orange, blue, neon green, even purple? Bad news. Also, he switched the red and green lights. Who does he think he is, Dan Rubin? Greeblies would've been a better choice than transparent parts for the engines, although greebs don't seem to be Legohaulic's strong suit. Regardless, it's my favorite to win the contest, although I've only seen one other entry.
