Dane's care is absolutely based on a car a friend in high school had. Or at least as well as I can remember it. Tweaked slightly to fit into the world.
Also, apologies for some inaccuracies and fluxuations in the art and style here for a bit. I was in a serious rough patch.

Mostly by switching to Clip Studio. So it will even out, in time. I promise.
