The '70 Plymouth Road Runner was Taro's first car and was also the one he used in the World Race. Several changes have been made to the car since joining the Metal Maniacs: Including a chain steering wheel, a new engine that comes out of the hood, a "classic" speedometer, and a new paint job. During the Storm Realm, Taro and his car were struck by a ball of lightning, causing the car to flip several times, and Taro to pass out. The damage sustained appears to be beyond repair as Taro is switched to Rivited afterwards. It is unknown what happens to the remains of the car.
