H/t: Car Scoops
Even though cars were never featured in the Star Wars universe, there were still land vehicles, like the Landspeeder, Speeder Bike, Sandcrawler, etc. One fan, Shawn Crosby, decided to build a Nissan 350 Z-based Z-Wing. Not just a simple paint job, it features side-mounted blasters, R2-D2 riding in the trunk, hub caps made from pizza pans, and a cockpit-inspired interior, complete with a hologram projector prop.

There’s an area right over the glove box for a lightsaber / tablet, a shifter repurposed from an old joystick, and even a 24V artificial horizon. The coolest feature just might be the steering wheel, which has had the top portion cut out and thumb buttons added, resulting in something you’d see in a real Z-Wing, along with the R2-D2 dome out back on the trunk lid.
