Kia had taken their brave pills when they decided to name their new small car the ‘Soul’. Korean cars had a come a long way in the run up to the Soul’s release, but the one thing they were still lacking was the exact thing they were naming their new car after.
Kia got it right though, and their quirky small SUV thing has done rather well. In fact Kia’s entire range is now more than a match for the established Japanese, American and European brands. However, this new found competence had yet to be appreciated by the Lego Community, as a quick search through our Archives here at TLCB revealed that not one Kia had ever appeared here.
Today Flickr’s Tim Inman has righted that oversight, with this; his ‘Overbite’ Kia Soul rat rod. With a roof chop, rusted paintwork and stripy seats, Tim’s Soul ticks all the rat rod boxes, and being based on a modern Korean hatchback somehow makes it all the cooler.
