The Elves are happy today. Not only has one of their number found a shiny red hot rod, but there’s a scantily clad girl too. Cue Elven giggling. We have Master MOCer and previous bloggee Redfern1950s to thank for our sniggering workforce of mythical little turds, and his ’50s Mercury-based ‘lead sled’ built in his trademark style.
Smooth curves (the car, not the girl) and chrome embellishments (again…) complete the look, and there’s more to see of Red’s Lead Sled at his vehicle-packed photostream. Click the link above to head to Flickr for a closer look, but no giggling!
Pretty girls have long been used as hood ornaments at car shows, thus enticing punters, photographers and the press to take a closer look at the car in question. The success of this product association depends on the prettiness of the girl and – to a lesser degree – the prettiness of the car too.
TLCB debutant Bricks Noir has nailed this formula with his latest build; a stunning mosaic muscle car complete with a hotpants wearing brunette. We asked our intern if she wouldn’t mind recreating this scene with the office Rover 200 (for research purposes), but we think it’s only resulted in the Inappropriate Conduct Box receiving a new entry.
While this TLCB staff member takes a trip to the HR department you can see more of Bricks Noir’s lovely build on both MOCpages and Flickr – click the links to make the jump.
