Throw Some Hammers Back There

Lego Dodge Ram 3500

Here at TLCB we don’t like ’90s traditional American pick-up trucks. Because they are – and we can’t state this strongly enough – truly dreadful in every conceivable way. This one, a Dodge Ram 3500, could be ordered with a Cummins diesel engine though, which meant that you could throw the rest of the truck away and at least keep hold of one bit of respectable engineering.

Luckily Ford are now shaking up the lacklustre truck market, with lighter aluminium bodies and smaller more efficient turbocharged engines, meaning that hopefully in a few years time the only naturally-aspirated ugly behemoth you’ll be able to see will be in Lego form like this. Plus your Mom of course. This (excellent) Ram 3500 replica is the work of TLCB regular Ralph Savelsberg, and you can see more of it and his other builds by visiting his Flickr photostream at the link above.

  4. […] Amongst the classics are a Pontiac Bonneville, Ford Fairlane Crown Victoria Skyliner, Buick Riviera, Chevrolet Impala, Chevrolet 3100 Stepside pick-up, and the aforementioned Hudson, all expertly recreated in miniature. There are also two dreadful modern pick-ups; a ’90s Ford F150, and if that wasn’t bad enough there’s the simply awful (but superbly replicated) Dodge Ram too. […]
