Is it me or does Beelzebub sound like someone who has screwed in a lot of light bulbs?

Wouldn’t having flame throwers and missle launchers in your car make your insurance rates go way up?

That’s why I’d mount phasers- who’d want to drive a nice car through wreckage and debris when you could just set for “vaporize”?
