CadZZilla

Bearded classic rockers ZZ Top have appeared here a few times over the years. Or rather, their cars have, being associated with them almost as much as their music. This 1948 custom Cadillac Series 62, known as ‘CadZZilla’, was built for lead guitarist Billy Gibbons in 1989 by legendary customiser Boyd Coddington at a cost rumoured to be near $1m. The CadZZilla has since become one of the most famous and revered customised vehicles in the world, with even a Hot Wheels toy replica available.

This spectacular Model Team version of the iconic hot rod comes from previous bloggee and TLCB favourite Tim Inman (aka rabidnovaracer) who has recreated the wild shape brilliantly in Lego form, along with a complete engine and interior, opening doors, and a seriously purple paint job. There’s much more to see at Tim’s photostream on Flickr – click the link above to take a closer look.
