What you see here is a taste of Shawn’s creation – a Star Wars inspired “car fighter.” It’s elegant, beautiful and best of all, original. In fact, Shawn even drew the attention of some fans a few years ago when he was featured on Dweebcast:

But, cons and web videos aren’t the only place you can see Shawn and his car because the man has also been spotted driving it openly around the town as recently as yesterday:

I just stopped a meeting with my boss because this car with R2-D2 on the back was out my window.

If you happen to come across Shawn and his R2, do yourself a favor and take a long look because that’s what it’s for. Shawn built the car to express his love of Star Wars while allowing others to do the same through his vehicle. Well done, sir. Well done.
