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.

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.

Gas Station Contest on Eurobricks

Alas, no official set either: danthaman11’s Octan Gas Station

Gas stations, filling stations, servos – the dinosaurs of the petrol age are still a popular LEGO subject. Disappointed that the Gas Station at the Copenhagen Toy Fair won’t be an official set, Eurobricks user Lego City Mann has proclaimed a contest named “The Servo Showdown!” It’s not an official EB contest (although it is hosted there), and we think it’s a rather nice idea.

“Get your imagination fueled”, as Lego City Mann puts it, and join the contest on Eurobricks.

We’d like to take the opportunity to feature danthaman11’s amazing Octan Gas Station on TLCB which, whilst not involved in the contest, should give you plenty of inspiration.
