A little heavy on the vehicles (though I realize they are the namesake of the deck), but I'm digging this clean-burning aether engine. Pentavus seems good for this deck. I might also suggest Hardened Scales if you wish to further push +1/+1 counters, along with Durable Handicraft - also from Kaldesh!

I love Breya!!! A fun interaction/infinite combo is Pentavus, Ashnod's Altar, and Blade of the Bloodchief. The pieces are pretty reasonably priced and with the amount of tutors in W/B/U/R it's super easy to get all the pieces you need.

Is there a reason you aren't running a token doubler like Doubling Season or Parallel Lives? (Primal Vigor is another choice, but that can be a problem if you run into another token deck.) It seems like one of those would be fantastic for this deck, especially since they could enable a few combos like Pentavus+Doubling Season+Ashnod's Altar for infinite counters on Pentavus/sacrifices for Asmira, Holy Avenger (and infinite mana/tokens with both Parallel Lives and Doubling Season out). Love the concept and flavour of the deck! Great job!

The first 2 Galvanic Bombardment in a game are inferior or equal to Lightning Bolt, making lightning bolt the preferred card (since it's overly optimistic to believe that a game will go long enough for the third copy to come up). Harnessed Lightning is also questionable... it takes a lot before it's better than Flame Slash.
Pentavus is funny, but playing something with cmc 7 requires ramping of tron-like levels, or ways to cheat it into play. As far as I can tell, you have neither.
Ion Storm is going to be impressively disappointing. It requires 2 mana for every activation, after you've spent 3 mana to just put it on the table. And THEN it needs a creature with a +1/+1 counter, or an artifact with a charge counter... that adds up to a card, your opponents are going to love.
You play quite a few 4-cmc cards. At that cost, cards should have immediate impact in modern - like Cryptic Command or Supreme Verdict. Removal is quite good in modern, so if you play a small creature, and the next turn a vehicle, your opponent will gleefully path/bolt/push/snag your creature.
Sorry, this is a bit of a rain on your vehicle-parade.

Hey, maddoxmtg. I'm kind of with Hybrow on this. Emrakul's Hatcher is a good card to have in this deck, at least for the ETB effect to add tokens. Hmm, those two goblin-mana ramp cards are great if I do add Pentavus...
Hybrow, I'm probably not going to add Pentavus in the deck. Simply for the fact that i already have a good amount of token creatures. Also, if I add that card, I'd have to replace a card of about equal mana, and that would be replacing my ETB draw power dragon. However, I have added your recommendation to the description in the "modest budget" section, because it's a great card. Hellion Eruption is a great card, but I decided against that a while ago. Mogg Infestation and Descent of the Dragons are the mass creature transformation I stuck with in the end.
Hey, DrValium. Fiery Gambit is a pretty interesting card. Straight up damage if I feel lucky. Hmm, I don't think I would be able to use this card. The only gambling I would consider in this deck is Gamble and that's a scary card too. Honesty, the whole deck is a pretty fun gamble, not really an opportunity to tutor for that card you need and all.
Thank you guys. Good thoughts, Good advices, and a great way for me to start the day.
