* WeaponizedCar: Being on the open road, the Coyote makes his vehicle out of the junk he finds in the roadside dump. Between the machine guns, two uses of an EjectionSeat, and a cannon in the trunk, one guess as to how it all turns out.

It looks like just another day, another {{chase|scene}} for WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner. Just as he’s about to catch his target, the Coyote gets hit with a mystery briefcase. It turns out to be a Spy Kit, tossed away a black-clad fugitive being {{chase|scene}}d on the open road by a patrol car. Intrigued by the prospect of new (non-ACME) resources, he gets right down to business.
