Dip it Low*

Suggested to us by a reader on our Facebook page, newcomer Drop Shop today makes their TLCB debut with two spectacular Model Team low riders. Both the 1980s Chevrolet Monte Carlo ‘Mad Monte’ above and ’66 Cadillac ‘Sinister Series’ below are immaculately constructed, and each has been dropped to a pavement-scraping height that looks simultaneously gloriously impractical and magnificently evil.

With all-black bodywork and custom chrome the models must have been a nightmare to photograph, but Drop Shop shows how it should be done with excellent presentation utilising great lighting and a clean monotone background (see how you can do this for yourself by clicking here), showcasing the creations superbly.

Drop Shop has uploaded a few other builds alongside the Mad Monte and Sinister Caddy which continue the low theme, including a beautiful dropped ’63 Cadillac Fleetwood Convertible and a slammed Ferrari 288 GTO (which is sacrilege, but undeniably well-made!).

Click the links above to see more of the two models featured in this post, here to see Drop Shop’s complete photostream, and we’re pretty sure that Drop Shop’s future creations will be be making appearances here at The Lego Car Blog.

*A personal thanks to Drop Shop for reminding that the video to today’s title song exists.

King of the Road

Dennis Glaasker aka Bricksonwheels is a firm favourite here at The Lego Car Blog. He’s been building spectacularly detailed Lego creations over a decade now, with the most recent ten years demonstrating how retro-chroming bricks can take the realism of a model to a whole new level.

To celebrate a decade of chrome Dennis has built very possibly the shiniest bike we’ve ever seen, this glorious 1:10 scale Harley Davidson Road King Lowrider complete with, you guessed it, a lot of chromed pieces.

Dennis’ chromed Harley can be seen at his Flickr album by clicking here, you can read his Master MOCers interview here at TLCB via the first link, and you can check out our preview of LEGO’s new officially licensed Harley Davidson Fatboy set by clicking here. Dennis thinks it just needs some chrome…
