Being somewhat of a Trekie I can still hear in my brain those imortal words. “Going where no man has gone before” Oddly one of the places that Captain Kirk ended up was behind the wheel of 1931 Cadillac V12 Roadster. In the second season episode named “A piece of the action” Kirk and Spock go to a planet right a wrong of a prior Starship. Seems that before the “Prime Directive” a book was left behind at this planet that told the story of 1930′s Chicago Gangsters. The people of this planet being prone to imitation based their entire society on the book.
As the story goes Kirk and Spock were tricked and kidnapped along the way. One of the best scenes was when trying to escape Kirk had to drive a 1931 Cadillac v12 Roadster. Kirk might of been good with a Phaser but couldn’t tell the difference between the clutch and the brake. After a number of horrible attempts and aware of Mr Spock’s groans Kirk says. “Are you afraid of automobiles“ No! Spock says “It’s your driving that alrams me” Kirk might of gone many places where no man had gone before but it wasn’t in a 1931 Caddy.
