In Remembrance of Ingmar

Today The Lego Car Blog learned the sad news that previous bloggee and Lego-building legend Ingmar Spijkhoven has lost his fight against motor neurone disease. Ingmar was best known in the Lego Community for his incredible Model Team trucks, many of which have appeared here, and for making instructions, kits, and even complete models available to buy.

Motor neurone disease (also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) currently has no cure, with sufferers expected to live no more than five years from diagnosis (Stephen Hawking is perhaps the most famous exception).

You can read more about how you can help in the fight against motor neurone disease via the ALS Association (they of the Ice Bucket Challenge), you can see Ingmar’s past creations blogged here at TLCB by clicking here, and you can visit Ingmar’s own excellent website by clicking here.
