Lego Biker Street

For those of you unfamiliar with 1990s teen tv set in a scummy youth club in Northern England, here’s the link you’ve been missing all your life. OK, Sanel Lukovic‘s ‘Biker Street’ might have literally nothing in common with a grey day in Newcastle (and it’s infinitely cooler), but the names were close enough for us to make that tenuous link.

Anyhoo, Sanel’s build is really very cool, with a huge array of hot rods, brick-built motorcycles, workshops, gas stations, and diners all recreated in glorious detail in mini-figure scale. Sanel’s photostream is definitely with a closer look and you can do just that via the link above.

Art Déco Gas Station – Picture Special

Lego Art Déco Gas Station

We regularly post beautiful Lego creations here at The Lego Car Blog. From sports cars to trucks and motorcycles to fighter jets, the produce of the online Lego community is often jaw-droppingly good, and it is of course the very reason that this website exists.

Today though we think we may be publishing the most beautiful vehicle-related creation that we’ve found in our five years of blogging. This is Andrea Lattanzio’s ‘Art Deco Gas Station’, and it is unbelievably perfect.

Lego Art Déco Gas Station

Based on a real-life gas station in Tucson, Arizona, Andrea’s incredible creation returns to the golden age of pumping gas, when stations such as this one were meeting places in their own right, rather than simply tools enabling people to get to the place they want to go.

With two period-correct Shell gas pumps underneath a wonderful curved awning, a fully equipped store, diner, and workshop, Andrea’s build offers more than just a fill up.

Three lovely Town scale vehicles feature in the build too; a neat step-side pick-up truck, a gorgeous tan-coloured hot rod coupe, and a brown hot rod roadster receiving some attention in the garage.

There’s a lot more to see of Andrea’s spell-binding build at his Flickr photostream, plus you can read our interview with the builder as part of the Master MOCers series by clicking this link.
