’63 Sting Ray – Picture Special

Lego Technic Corvette C2 Stingray 1963

This brilliant blue beauty comes from James Tillson of Flickr and Eurobricks. It is of course a C2 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray, which James has recreated superbly in Technic form. He’s built both the convertible and the coupe versions, but it’s the coupe that we’re concentrating on here, because it’s probably the most beautiful American car ever designed.

And this is why – what a rear window! The C2’s split rear screen only lasted for one year (1963) because – with a massive blind-spot right in the middle – it wasn’t the safest design. But it did look gorgeous.

James’ Sting Ray coupe is the 1963 version and thus includes that wonderful rear, and there’s a lots going on underneath too. With working steering, a miniature functioning V8 engine, semi-independent front and trailing-arm rear suspension with floating differential, opening doors and hood and the Corvette’s neat rotating pop-up lights all included, James’ build fully qualifies as Technic Supercar. There’s lots more to see on both Flickr and Eurobricks – click the links above to make like a banana and split.

Little Red Corvette

Lego Chevrolet Corvette C4

The Chevrolet Corvette C4 was – like all American cars from the mid ’80s to late ’90s – total garbage. With its enormous 5.7 litre V8 engine making as little as 205bhp in the early cars not even intervention by Lotus (owned by General Motors at the time) could turn the Corvette into a competitive sports car. Nevertheless the C4 Corvette sold well because it looked… like this.

Heiko Ruutel makes his second appearance here in two weeks with this superb Model Team recreation of the stunning C4 ‘Vette and there’s more to see on MOCpages – click the link above and party like it’s 1990.

Lego Corvette Stingray

Caravans don’t usually feature highly on our blog list, but today we made an exception, as not only is this one rather pretty, it’s got one hell of a tow car. The gorgeous mid-’60s Corvette Stingray, complete with roof-mounted surfboard, is the work of car building legend – and TLCB Master MOCer – Firas Abu Jaber.

Firas’ beautiful build features some stellar detailing, including all the assorted camping paraphernalia you might expect to see in a 1960s caravan. There’s lots more to see on both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to take a trip.

Lego Chevrolet Corvette

The Lego Car Blog Elves are hungry today, as it’s you our readers who’ve earned a meal token and blue Smartie!* Suggested to us by several of you, this lovely Chevrolet Corvette is the work of MOCpages newcomer Dave Slater.

Dave’s late ’60s Model Team Corvette looks the business and earned a few extra TLCB points for its superbly detailed engine and interior, pop-up lights, opening doors and removable T-Top roof. You can see all the photos of Dave’s classic Corvette on MOCpages at the link above.

Little Red Corvette

Lego Corvette

Here at The Lego Car Blog we are not fans of 1970s Americana. We grew up on a diet of small, nimble, efficient cars that could go around corners and that didn’t break down unless they were French. 1970s American barges therefore are definitely not our bag, being precisely the opposite of all of the above.

However, even in America’s automotive wilderness years there were a handful of oases. This is one such vehicle, the utterly gorgeous Chevrolet Corvette C3.

This beautiful Lego Technic example of Chevrolet’s icon is the work of Eurobricks resident (and Technic genius) Madoca. Underneath the wonderfully curvaceous bodywork sits a fully functioning remote control chassis, complete with independent suspension all round, working lights (including pop-up function), opening doors, trunk and hood plus a removable targa roof panel, and of course RC drive and steering.

To see more of Madoca’s exceptional build head over to the Eurobricks discussion via the link above, but first make sure you check out the Corvette in action via the video below.

The one with the Corvette

Friends Corvette

Pheobe and Monica. Add Rachel for twice the awesome

LEGO’s new ‘Friends’ line has caused quite a bit of controversy online (apparently girls aren’t allowed to like pink anymore). Hoping to redress the balance is EROL, who’s given the girls a Corvette to take to the mall the racetrack. Show your appreciation on Flickr.
