EDIT: Well after getting a new monitor, I discovered the blacks and grays were off. So I've redone them. I'll have to do it to some of my other drawings also (not the first time this has happened to me wiith a monitor).

Been wanting to do this one for months, and finally got around to doing it.

In case some of you don't know the movie, Cannonball Run was one of the best car movies to come out of the 80's. In this pic' ponies have taken on the role of the characters:

Pinkie - Victor/Captain Chaos (Dom DeLuise)
Fleur - Pamela (Farrah Fawcett)
Dash - J.J. (Burt Reynolds)
Derpy - Dr. Van Helsing (Jack Elam)
Berry Punch - Jamie (Dean Martin)
Trixie - Morris (Sammy Davis Jr.)
Octavia - Marcie (Adrienne Barbeau)
Rarity - Jill (Tara Buckman)
Luna - Sheik Abdul ben Falafel (Jamie Farr)

EDIT: Heck with it, in case someone has a fanfic idea ;) here's some more of the cast:

Hawaiian Tropic car drivers: Applejack and Big Mac (Terry Bradshaw and Mel Tillis)
Mad Dog and redneck (drives GMC pickup): Vinyl Scratch and Braeburn
Seymour - Pony Joe (Roger Moore) *hint hint*
Jackie Chan and Michael Hui - Not sure (maybe Twilight and Lyra)
And you'd have to include :iconwildfireeyerollplz: somewhere.

Here's the official song for the first 2 movies: [link]

The 3rd movie (known as "Speed Zone" in the US) kind of flopped, but it did give us this awesome song: [link]

And if you've never seen it, here's the full movie (uploaded in several parts by this person. Hurry before WB takes it down!) [link]

Nice ambulance!
Magnificent. I half expected Blueblood as Sheik ben Falafel, though. And while Derpy is probaly the best choice for Dr. Van Helsing, she still kinda falls short of the utter madness on display in the movie. It's hard to think of ANY pony in the show that could match that.
Out of all MLP-car fanart I didn't expect to see Cannonball Run))) Pretty good!!

I saw the film a million of times, is the best, but unfortunately I only found it in english and it's not the same. The best scene is the last once with captain caos. And the fight between racers and bikers.

I never thought I would see MLP/Cannonball Run fan art! Thank you so much! :rofl:

I'd love to see how they handled the big battle between the drivers and the bikers at the end. Who would the bikers be? Diamond Dogs (they are about the same IQ level...)? Changelings?
That's a tough call. The dogs definitely match bikers, but it was the Changelings that actually got their asses kicked in the show.
It also helps that the Dogs have the basic total shocking lack of anything like a brain that seems to be a prerequisite for villains in movies like this.
move em out , move em out let em roll from sea to shining sea...
Great pic, have you ever considered doing more Cannonball inspired pics, or maybe Knight Rider?
