The Road Bandit is based on the Jeepney, a public transit bus that is ubiquitous in the Philippines, a cultural icon in itself. It's origins can be traced back to being reformatted left over Jeeps from World War II. They are often decorated with stickers and bright colors. It has been turned into a hot rod, and a blown motor in the front.
