Classic Hit & Run

The Elves have been relatively peaceful of late. By which we mean none of the creations that they’ve found have been fast enough to smush one-another into the office carpet. That ended today.

This is Lachlan Cameron (aka Lox Lego)’s spectacular Ford F100 hot rod, built as a commissioned piece and featuring full remote control drive, a V8 engine, opening doors and deck-lid, and with some of the most inventive custom decals we’ve seen yet (check out the stitching on the seats!).

The Elf at the controls couldn’t care less about the seat stitching though, because Lachlan’s creation can be driven by XL or Buggy motors and – in this case – is powered by a third-party BuWizz bluetooth battery delivering up to eight times the power of LEGO’s own unit.

With all-wheel-drive Lachlan’s creation put that power down very effectively in the halls of TLCB Towers, as the Elf at the controls inevitably used its find to wreak havoc upon its Elven colleagues. Due to the F100’s ground scraping ride height however, no Elves were technically smushed, instead being catapulted over the bonnet, so our smush-free streak is kinda still going. We still have some tidying up to do though.

Whilst we get on with that you can check out more of Lachlan’s stunning F100 hot rod at the Eurobricks forum and at his 70+ photo Flickr album which shows the Ford in a variety of wheel and tyre combinations. Lachlan has also made instructions available via the links above should you wish to build his design for yourself, plus you can check out his interview here at The Lego Car Blog as the newest addition to the Master MOCers series by clicking these words.

Restoration Ralph

Restoring a car is a tricky business, but it’s slightly easier on an old pick-up truck such as this Ford F100. Everything bolts on and off a frame, there are virtually no electrics, and about three spanner sizes will undo every bolt. Of course it’s easier still in LEGO form…

This neat F100 restoration scene comes from regular bloggee Ralph Savelsberg, who has depicted the classic pick-up in various stages of reassembly. A variety of tools are included too and there’s more to see of Ralph’s restoration on Flickr via the link above.

Black Sugar*

Lego Ford F100 V8

Another day, another Elf returns to TLCB Towers eagerly expecting a meal token and a Smartie. Today’s Elf is in luck, as it will get fed, but sadly as Smarties don’t come in black and there’s an unwritten rule about creation colours matching candy, it won’t receive the extra sugar hit. No matter, because Chris Radbone‘s custom ’50s Ford F100 pick-up hot rod looks the business in black. Opening doors, a dropping tailgate and a V8 engine all feature, and there’s more to see on Flickr via the link.

Mooneyes

Lego Mooneyes Hot Rod Garage

This wonderful scene comes from TLCB favourite and Master MOCer Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74, and it’s got the hot rodding fraternity here at TLCB Towers very excited.

Mooneyes are one of the most famous hod rod garages in the world, and have been operating out of their Santa Fe Springs workshop since 1962.

Andrea has recreated the iconic Mooneyes building in glorious detail, and has included a ’68 Ford F100 pick-up and ’32 Ford Model-B hot rod for good measure.

There’s lots more to see at Andrea’s photostream – click the link to view all the images and read the full build details.

Two of a Kind

Lego Ford Hot Rod & F100

These two tasty looking classics were discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. Paul Kim is the builder, returning for his second appearance here at TLCB, and he’s constructed this ’50s Ford F100 pickup and matching Model A hot rod beautifully. You can see more of both models via the link above.
