Jap Rod

Lego 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe Takehito Yamato

Japan’s product design may not have a reputation for originality, but the Japanese can take almost anything pioneered by another part of the world and make it better. See the Mazda MX-5 Miata, the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Nissan GT-R, and pretty much every electronic device ever invented.

We can probably add hot rods to that list now too, thanks to this gorgeous 1932 ‘Takehito Yamato’ Ford Deuce Coupe. This Lego recreation of the real-world car comes from Master MOCer and previous bloggee Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74, and he’s replicated the original vehicle superbly in Lego form, even building a beautiful period-correct workshop in which to house it.

There’s more to see of the Takehito Yamato at Norton74’s photostream – click the link above to head over to somewhere inbetween America and Japan.

Hot Rods & Hot Dogs

Lego Hot Rod Diner

This neat collection of Tiny Turbo scale hot rods comes from Flickr’s Jonathan Elliott, and they’re all waiting outside the diner for a ride.* Take your pick and hop in at the link above.

*Just like your Mom.

A Little Blow

Lego Hot Rod Blown

Charlie, powder, coke, dust, snow, nose candy…. all of interest to your Dad in the ’80s, but not the sort of blow we have here. This beautifully shot Town-scale hot rod from serial bloggee _Tiler features one of the smallest supercharged engines we’ve ever seen. In fact it looks to be mostly supercharger and not much engine at all, but who are we to argue with the Blow to Bang ratio when it looks this cool. Join us at the line via the link above.

Big Black Rod*

Lego Technic Ford Model-A Hot Rod

Another day, another Elf returns to TLCB Towers in the hope of a meal token. A token said Elf was duly granted, because this Ford Model-A ‘five window’ hot rod is right up our alley.

Featuring a wealth of Technic functionality Jonathan Elliott‘s hot rod is definitely worthy of the Technic category, but to be honest we’re not really looking at the working functions because the outside is Just. So. Damn. Cool.

There’s only one image available at present, but nevertheless you can still check it out at Jonathan’s Flickr photostream by clicking the link in the text above.

*That’s in your internet history now. Heh heh heh.

Back in Black

Lego Technic Hot Rod

TLCB regular Horcik Designs is back with another excellent Technic creation. His latest is this neat V6-engined hot rod, complete with a rear differential and working steering.

Lego Technic Hot Rod

Horcik’s hot rod looks good (and simple) enough to be an official Technic set, and certainly improves on LEGO’s own effort. See more on Flickr at the link above, or click here to visit the discussion at Eurobricks.

Sacrilege

Lego Ferrari 250 GTO Gasser

And yet… somehow… rather cool. Even so, we’re glad this Ferrari 250 GTO (variants of which are the most valuable cars ever sold at auction) gasser hot rod exists only in Danish plastic.

Previous bloggee Tim Inman possesses the slightly warped mind that created this, and there’s more to see at his Flickr photostream via the link above.

Let’s go to the Beach…

Lego Surfer Hot Rod

Let’s go to the beach, each
Let’s go get a wave
They say, what they gonna say?
Have a drink, clink, found the Bud Light
Bad bitches like me, is hard to come by.

The profound words of well-known poet Nicki Minaj there, whose affront to music perfectly captions this neat mini-figure scene from Flickr’s sanellukovic. There’s more to see of his excellent Town-scale hot rod complete with Wolverine-esque driver at his photostream – click the link above to catch a wave.

Blacktrod

Lego Blacktron Hot Rod

We rather like LEGO’s evil Blacktron empire from the Classic Space era, and we really like hot rods, so combining the two – as regular bloggee Horcik Designs has done – is a surefire winner. See more of the mash-up on Flickr via the link above.

Cream Dream

Lego Ford Hot Rod

This lovely Ford Model-A V8-engined hot rod comes from OutBricks of Flickr aka Kevin Heitke of MOCpages, and if you like his creation as much as we do then you can build your own, as he’s made a video tutorial of the instructions! You can check out all the images and find a link to the aforementioned build steps via the links above.

A Single Shade of Grey

Lego Ford Hot Rod

We are never ever going to read the cancer on literature that is 50 Shades of Grey. However, we do quite like grey LEGO bricks, and over the years LEGO have probably released 50 shades of the stuff. This can make it tempting to use multiple shades in creations, however, unless you’re building a castle wall it can look a bit messy.

Not so here, where previous bloggee Jonathan Elliott has kept it simple with just a single shade, and his ’29 Ford Pick-Up hot rod looks wonderfully clean as a result. Photographed beautifully in his Red Room of Pain, Jon’s build features opening doors, a dropping tailgate, and a fully detailed engine and interior, and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link above.

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.

Chicken Coop

Lego Hot Rod

We’re not really sure why this ’34 Ford Coupe hot rod is called the Chicken Coupe, but we do know that we love it. TLCB regular _Tiler is the builder, and as always it’s both beautifully built and photographed. See more at the link.

Bat Rod

Lego Bat Man Hot Rod

Of course LEGO Batman drives a hot rod. He has impeccable taste. This one is the work of TLCB regular Andrea Lattanzio and there’s more to see here.

75875 Redux

Lego 75875 Hot Rod Redux

Office favourite and regular bloggee _Tiler has returned with another beautifully photographed hot rod, this time loosely based on the official LEGO 75875 Ford Model A set, only with much, much more detail. Check out the full size image at _Tiler’s photostream via the link above.
