I am a big stephen king fan and I noticed in the honking even though it was mostly based on werewolf movies it had elements of Christine(demonic car killing enemies and friends of owner that repairs itself)and project satan looked kinda like an old 50s car which christine was.And It is athouroly enjoyable book much like the episode was

Also, it had a reference to the film 'Death Race 2000', about the points for Bender running over Fry. I guess it's also a reference to Carmageddon, although it originally came from the film  smile

Well, in Anthology of Interest II,  When scarecrow Fry is trying to scare a crow, he reads it a passage from Christine.

I think the car that run over Bender in "The Honking" looked like Christine...
Project Satan didn't look like Christine at all...

Unfortunately the car isn't close enough in this  grab...

It was also related to "The Car" a lod of crap on film but a sweet Barris custom job.

BTW an 1/18 scale dicast is suposed to be made of this soon. A bit of tweaking could make it easaly look exactly like Wearcar Bender.
And project Satan had a pretty solid Chopped Merc Custom look to it.

Do calculon and the gypsy still turn into werecars? Because, the virus should still be in their systems. If not then couldnt Bender have just gotten the same AntiVirus program they used?
