Sittin’ Pretty

Lego Datsun 240Z

This TLCB writer is going to poke his head above the metaphorical parapet that is the internet’s comments and state that the prettiest sports car of the 1970s is not a Jaguar, Porsche, or Alfa Romeo… but a Datsun. In particular, this Datsun – the wonderful 1970 240Z.

This lightly JDM-modified 240Z comes from Jonathan Elliott and it captures the Japanese sports car’s curves beautifully. There’s more to see on both Flickr and MOCpages via the links, and you can find today’s title track – by none other than The Datsuns – by clicking here.

Atomic Lady

Lego Atomic Punk Hot Rod

It’s time for a builder double! Flickr’s LEGO Bro is a veteran bloggee of TLCB and today he makes his return with three top quality cars. Above is his ‘Atomic Punk‘ hot rod entry into the LUGNuts ‘100 Ways to Win’ challenge, whilst below he’s hoping for another way to win with his neat Nissan/Datsun Fairlady combo. See more of each build on Flickr via the links.

BanZai!

Lego Datsun 240Z

Flickr’s _Tiler could have his own page here at TLCB, so regularly does he appear. His latest build is a model that we want so much it hurts. His brilliant wide-arched Datsun 240Z shows you don’t need to build big to build special. You can see more of _Tiler’s 6-wide masterpiece at his photostream – click the link above to make the jump.

Outlawz

Lego Outlaw Datsun 240Z

The Elves are little grumpy today as this find comes from one of you. Suggested via the Feedback page is previous bloggee piratecox‘s mean-looking ‘Outlaw’ Datsin 240Z. Complete with a roll-cage, big rims, flared arches and a front mounted intercooler(?) it’s been built and photographed superbly, and you can see more at the link above.

Two Hundred and Forty Winks

Lego Datsun 240Z

This bewitchingly beautiful creation comes from TLCB favourite _Tiler. A lesson in both brilliant Lego building and exceptional photography, _Tiler’s gorgeous Datsun 240Z is surely one of the mini-figure scale highlights of the year so far.

You can see all the images of _Tiler’s recreation of Japan’s best known classic sports car on Flickr – click the link above to make the jump.

Japan’s E

Lego Datsun 240Z

It’s time for one of your suggestions (much to our Elves’ annoyance), this one being passed on to us via our Feedback page.

The Datsun 240Z might be the prettiest Japanese car ever made (although it does seem to have taken more than a little inspiration form Jaguar’s E-Type), and LegoMarat has done a fine job recreating it in Lego form. It’s remotely controlled too, and you can see the images at his photostream.

Senator Chinchilla’s got out his big box of yellow plates again… and joined them together to spectacular effect in the shape of this Datsun 240Z. Notable for its bigness, careful detailing, lovely seats, bigness, many technical niceties, excellent shaping and bigness. See it on MOCpages: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/344722
