Gerry Conway & Ross Andru
Note: Although Conway and Andru have the dubious privilege of being credited with the creation of the Spider-Mobile, it is widely assumed that the editor insisted upon the inclusion of the vehicle in stories to satisfy a toy manufacturer - most likely MEGO, who was the premiere super-hero toy maker of the early 1970s.
To promote a revolutionary non-polluting engine created by Corona Motors, Spider-Man was approached by the advertising agents Carter and Lombardo.
Although refusing at first to cheapen himself with such a hair-brained scheme, Spider-Man agrees to the promotion in order to settle some debts as Peter Parker.
Being a New York City native Peter Parker never saw a need for a drivers license and the vehicle was soon wrecked at the bottom of a river - where it would sit until retrieved by the Terrible Tinkerer, who used it to strike at Spider-Man via remote control.
Having the humiliating task of defeating his own car Spider-Man delivered the vanquished vehicle to its creators with the note "Good Riddance!" - putting to rest the saga of the Spider-Mobile.
