Tampa Bay Ferrari Dealership – Picture Special

Lego Ferrari Dealership

Constructed from around 36,000 pieces and 4 years in the making, this is one of the largest Lego projects that this site has ever featured. Ryan Link, a regular bloggee here at The Lego Car Blog, has been very busy.

Huge Lego Ferrari Dealership

Loosely based on the Tampa Bay Ferrari dealership, Ryan has designed and built a home for the eight Ferrari models that he has constructed over the past few years. Measuring 192×144 studs, Ryan’s enormous creation can easily house his collection, and features a wealth of incredible detailing, including brick-built wall mosaics depicting classic Ferrari models, beautiful Ferrari lettering, and even a couple of wonderfully intricate prancing horse logos too.

Lego Ferrari Dealership

The shot above shows just how good the aforementioned mosaics and logos look, which feature throughout the interior of the dealership including in the showroom, customer lounge and accessories area, and workshop, all of which are lit by a third-party LED system integrated into the roof of the build.

Lego Ferrari Models

The stars of Ryan’s incredible build are of course the Ferrari models which it was built to house, and they include a 458 Italia, Enzo, LaFerrari, 599 GTB, Testarossa, F12 Berlinetta, and even a fully liveried Ferrari team truck, all of which have been published here.

There’s a whole lot more of this spectacular creation to see at Ryan Link’s photostream and we cannot recommend clicking this link enough. LEGO, Ferrari… if ever you visit this little corner of the internet; invite Ryan out for a chat – we think the officially licensed Ferrari range of LEGO sets could so with a bit of expansion…

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.

Lego Mooneyes Hot Rod Garage

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.

Gallic Garage

Lego Town Garage

This charming Town garage comes from newcomer brickbink of Flickr, and it is quite gloriously French. A Citroen 2CV van, Renault 4 (we think), and a baguette all add gallic authenticity, and there’s more to see at the link above.

Esso Service 1953 – Picture Special

Lego Esso Garage 1953 Norton74

This magnificent 1953 Esso service station is the work of previous bloggee Andrea Lattanzio (aka Norton74) and it’s probably as close to perfect as a Lego creation can possibly be.

Designed by Dutch architect Willem Dudock 112 of these beautiful structures were built across the Netherlands following World War 2 in order to meet the needs of the rapidly expanding road network. Dudock’s brief was to design a station that was cheap and simple to construct, and that minimised the raw material usage – a critical factor for a country rebuilding itself after years of conflict.

Lego Petrol Station Esso

Andrea’s incredible recreation of Dudock’s ingenious design is not light on raw material however, as every conceivable detail has been replicated perfectly in Lego form, from the beautiful art deco fuel pumps (attended by Andrea’s previously blogged Volkswagen Transporter) to the brilliantly detailed workshop tooling.

We highly recommend taking a trip Andrea’s wonderful Flickr Photostream where you can see more of the Netherlands in 1953, and we may also be seeing more of Andrea here at TLCB soon

Rust in Peace

Lego Rat Rod Hot Rod

The world is full of wonderful forgotten cars. From middle eastern ‘princes’ abandoning their supercars in desert parking lots to the little old lady whose late husband’s classic Jaguar has been decomposing silently in her unopened garage for decades, all petrolheads dream of discovering a long-lost automotive relic.

Kosmas Santosa has recreated that moment when the door onto something special is opened with this beautifully shot garage scene, and you can see more of his ‘Abandoned Beauty’ on Flickr here.

Grand Prix Auto Services

Lego Garage

This may not be a car, but it is beautiful and throughly automotive related, so it warrants publication here. Andrew Tate‘s gorgeous art-deco garage and gas station can be found in more detail on Flickr – click the link above to fill up.

Toolbox

Lego Garage Hot Rod

This is a neat Town garage scene was found on Flickr today. Eric Teo has built all the tools and equipment you could need, plus a very cool looking hot rod, in his 32×32 diorama. The mini-figures look a bit on the small side though – perhaps Eric’s build finally provides the answer for the universally useless Jack Stone figures. Those were dark days eh LEGO?… Anyway, you can see more of the vertically-challenged mechanics and their excellent garage backdrop at the link above.

No. 74 – Picture Special

Lego '32 Ford Hot Rod

This absolutely stunning ’32 Ford Roadster hot rod was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. It’s been built by previous bloggee Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74, and it’s quite incredibly beautiful.

Lego Hot Rod Garage

Based on a ’32 Ford Model-B body and fitted with a flathead V8, Andrea’s creation is typical of the early hot rods of Bonneville racing. He’s also included a photo of the car in his wonderful previously featured workshop, complete with superbly recreated (although slightly more modern) tools and garage equipment.

There’s lots more to see at Andrea’s Flickr photostream and we highly recommend paying him a visit – click here to see all of the beautiful images.

Officina Super Sprint Picture Special

Lego Vespa Scooter Workshop

We’re basically larger, hairier children here at TLCB Towers, and as such we usually post vehicles with a million horsepower, or guns, or racing stripes. And if possible with all three. Today though we’re posting something surprisingly small*, and possibly even a little elegant – the infamous classic Vespa scooter.

Lego Officina Super Sprint

Flickr’s Norton74 has appeared here several times before, more recently with his beautiful Volkswagen garage. He’s now re-purposed this previous build to replicate his own Officina Super Sprint Vespa Workshop that he owns in real-life, and it’s possibly even more lovely than before. One of his Volkswagen Transporters even makes a re-appearance too.

There’s a whole gallery to enjoy on at Norton74’s photostream, click the link above to take the trip.

Bare Metal

Lego VW Transporter Workshop

It’s not often that we see a Lego recreation of a vehicle in any state other than pristine condition. TLCB regular Norton74 has bucked this trend with a new addition to his brilliant previously blogged workshop – a fantastic bare metal Volkswagen Transporter shell. The shell itself is a neat idea, but it’s Norton’s superb garage tools which steal the show. You can see the image above – suggested to us by a reader – in full size on Flickr.

Maintenance Time

Garage 01

The first of two car maintenance related posts today comes from L@go, over on Flickr. It’s a reworking of the classic 361 Garage set from 1979. This version has been updated and expanded too, leaving loads of space for an interior packed with details.

There’s an oil spill on the floor, that looks just like the stain on the carpet in reception at The Lego Car Blog Towers. There’s also a very nicely built bench vice and what we hope is a sausage in a microwave. Higher up, you might spot a fume extraction system and the typical collection of junk and old car parts that you’ll find on the office roof of many workshop. Click on this link to see the full album of the Raph brothers’ repair shop.

Volkswagen ‘Garage Life’ Picture Special

Lego VW Transporter Garage

Today’s post is something a bit special. Andrea Lattanzio (aka Norton74) has appeared here at TLCB several times with his hugely impressive European trucks, and most recently with his beautiful adaptation of LEGO’s 10220 Volkswagen Camper. His modified 10220 repurposed the original set as a canvas covered pick-up for Volkswagen Service, and Andrea has now constructed a stunning workshop to compliment his original model.

Lego Volkswagen Transporter Pick-Up

Entitled ‘Garage Life’, Andrea has recreated everything found in a typical workshop to exceptional detail, including every fitment, amenity and tool. Highlights include a Lego compressor, engine hoist, pillar drill, jack, rolling tool box, broom, axle stands, stereo system, sink with hand wash…

Lego Volkswagen Garage

You can see all of the details above plus plenty more besides by visiting Andrea’s enthralling Flickr photostream or MOCpages account. Which is where we’re off to now. See you there…

Restoration

Lego Garage WorkshopThe Lego Car Blog Elves haven’t found any decent cars today, so to keep them fed we’re diversifying slightly with this charming garage workshop scene from Flickr’s Konajra. More known for his huge ships, Konajra’s mini-figure scene is full of superb details. See if you can identify the four post lift, engine trolley, unpainted cab door, bench vice and, of course, the classic Henschel HS100 truck.

Hey Joe

Joe's Garage LegoJoachim Klang, aka -derjoe- on Flickr, has built some marvellous vehicles over the years. Now, he’s pulled his best together, and built himself a garage to house them. You can see his collection on Flickr at the link above, and if you really like them (and are either German or better at foreign languages than we are), you can see how each is made in Joe’s new book, available on Amazon.
