Christmas is over, the decorations are down, and work begins tomorrow. Versteinert‘s previously featured classic station wagon, as driven by Santa himself, has now been repurposed as a police car, and represents this slightly depressing return to normality in Lego form.
Of course ‘return to normality’ is a relative term, as our emergency workers face probably the most difficult January in living memory, thanks to COVID-19’s decision to become even more transmissible. Yay.
So it’s Christmas hats off to our emergency service readers; you are the heroes we need right now, and there’s more to see of Versteinert’s ’50s police car at via the link above.
No tenuous links to Christmas are needed for this post! Versteinert’s classic station wagon entitled ‘Ready for Christmas’ includes a (brilliant) Christmas tree, a boot full of presents, and Saint Nicholas himself at the wheel! Ingenious parts usage is in abundance and you can check out Santa’s station wagon in more detail at both Flickr and Eurobricks.
Right, enough tenuous linking to obscure ’80s Scottish rock bands, on to the model. Measuring over twice as wide as his small-scale version, Luke’s Big Country (Dammit! Ed.) is packed with detail, and includes opening doors, hood and tailgate plus working steering.
It’s also one of the coolest-looking cars that we’ve seen in ages, and it’s made even better with a roof-rack mounted surfboard. There’s lots more to see at Luke’s photostream – click Luke’s name above to visit a Big Country (we’ll stop now before our editor fires us).
Ford did back in the ’60s, and they had some truly ridiculous ‘English’ car names too. This particular one is a Ford Country Squire, and this 8-wide Lego creation – complete with wooden side-mouldings – is rather brilliant. It’s been built by Luke C of Flickr and there more to see here.
We like old, slightly rubbish cars here at The Lego Car Blog. This stirling effort was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. Built by r a p h y it’s a Polski Fiat 125P Kombi (Station Wagon, Tourer or Estate if you’re not from Eastern Europe), modified in ‘cultstyle’. Which makes it somehow very cool. See more on Flickr at the link above.
Our Elves are gross little creatures. They do a good job (or at least a very cheap job), but they’re still gross. Which is why the Elf that brought this in to The Lego Car Blog Towers was so pleased with itself; finally a car for them! Small, green and a bit yukky. Henrik Hoexbroe is the genius(?) behind this late ’50s slice of American automotive garbage.
