COBOL: Pony and trap.
FORTRAN: Coach and four.

VB: Engine from a big rig, sawn in half and on the roof; 
    Chassis stolen from a Ford Fiesta;
    1 wheel & tire from a Fiesta, one from a Ferrari, one from tractor, and the last one waiting for Phase Two development (Currently in Phase 6).
    Doors, windows, hood, trunk, exhaust: removed for performance.
    All held together with spit, baling wire, and huge amounts of still wet concrete.

Not because of the language (though that's revolting enough: On Error Resume Next ensures that) but the users who think they are developers ...
