We’ve Got Gas

Well, Thomas Gion aka HotDogSandwiches does, in the form of this marvellous 1960s Chevrolet Nova ‘Gasser’ style drag racer.

Thomas’s Speed Champions scale build features removable front bodywork, a brilliant brick-built engine, flame-shooting exhausts, wheelie bars, plus a range of wonderfully life-like tools and equipment.

There’s more of the build to see at Thomas’s ‘1963 Chevrolet Nova Gasser’ album – click the link above to take a look!

We like rusty cars here at The Lego Car Blog. The staff car park features several. Although in those cases the rust is due to neglect, age, and general decrepitness rather than some kind of rat-rod based badassery.

So too is Tim Henderson’s ‘barn find’ ’68 Chevy Nova, although unlike the office Rover 200 it somehow manages to look seriously cool as well as neglected, old, and decrepit.

A cunning deployment of mini-figure seats form the doors, an array of browns convey years of oxidisation, and there’s more of Tim’s ‘barn find’ Nova to see at his photostream here.

Death Proof

“This car is a hundred percent death proof. Only to get the benefit of it, honey, you really need to be sitting in my seat.”

Death Proof isn’t one of Tarantino’s best works (but the bar is unfathomably high), however it’s undoubtedly his best vehicular work.

Stuntman Mike’s 1970 Chevrolet Nova appears in Lego form courtesy of Jonathan Elliott, and you can see more at his photostream. Just make sure you don’t sit in the passenger seat.

Supernova

We’re rounding out today with a simple Speed Champions style build that’s both beautifully executed and presented, proving just a handful of parts can create something special. Jonathan Elliott is the builder, his model is a classic Chevy Nova SS, and there’s more to see here.

Lego Chevy Nova Drag

Flickr’s _Tiler should probably have his own section here at TLCB, so frequently does he appear. With builds like this superb Chevrolet Nova SS, it’s easy to see why – _Tiler has recreated the Chevy’s bodywork beautifully. Apart from the hood that is, which as been removed to make space for one heck of an engine. See more of _Tiler’s latest build at the link above.

Today’s second classic Chevy comes from fellow Flickr builder Tim Henderson, who has recreated one of the two mid-’60s G-10 panel vans that he own’s in real life. Cornering doesn’t look like a fun proposition, but we have to admit it looks damn cool! Click the link above for more classic Chevrolet goodness.

This wonderful American classic was found on Flickr today. Infraredbrick‘s beautiful 1967 Chevy Nova features a detailed engine and interior, plus opening doors, hood and trunk. See more at the link.

'68 Chevrolet Nova

As different from GM's European 'Nova' as it's possible to get. If you're American and reading this - Google it!

On a recent visit to Flickr one of our Elves found this: Made by Lego911, it ‘s a custom 1968 Chevrolet Nova. If only we got this in Europe rather than the granny box that wears the same badge.
