Picnic Basket

Lego Volkswagen Golf GTI Cabriolet

Volkswagen’s Golf GTI is in its seventh generation now, and to date three of these iterations have spawned slightly strange looking convertible versions. This is the very first, the Mark 1 Golf Cabriolet, lovingly nick-named the ‘picnic basket’ due to its rather ugly roll-over hoop. Still, it stopped your head coming off in a crash, which was quite a novel concept three decades ago.

Newcomer REGIS Michel is the builder behind this chunky Model Team re-creation of the ’80s icon, and you can see more of his topless model on MOCpages here.

    Many thanks to TLCB for this post ; I did that car with real pleasure, and I think I’ll build another Volkswagen for october.
