The Lego Car Blog Elves like yellow. And they also like hot rods. TLCB regular _Tiler scores a home run then, with his brilliant American Graffiti Deuce Coupe, complete with banana rear fenders! See more on Flickr.
We might not be generous in any way to TLCB Elves, but we are to you guys. Overlooking a slight time-zone discrepancy, Flickr’s Chrisbuilds has snuck into TLCB Summer Building Competition at the last second. Well, when we say ‘snuck’, as much as is possible with a bright yellow ’32 Ford Deuce hot rod and a ’55 Chevy Coupe.
Both cars are stars from the iconic 1973 movie ‘American Graffiti’ and Chris has replicated them superbly in smooth Model Team style. You can see more of both his competition entries on Flickr – click the link above to take a trip to ’62.
Brothers Brick writer Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist) adds another movie-star car to his already spectacular collection. The Deuce Coupe became one of the most watched cars in the world after its appearance in the 1973 classic American Graffiti and Ralph has recreated the film icon beautifully in his easily recognisable Model Team style. You can view all the photos at his Flickr photostream here, and you can see his previous Lego film and TV vehicles here on The Lego Car Blog by using the Search function at the foot of this page.
