Lego Chevrolet Suburban

Things we don’t like here at TLCB; Mosquitoes, Kim Jong-Un, everything will.i.am has done since ‘Where is the Love?’, and the Chevrolet bloody Suburban.

Built to take drug dealers, stockbrokers’ housewives, and mildly successful rappers through the electronic gates of their gaudy mock-Edwardian mansions, the Suburban is a plasticky truck-based environmental catastrophe for people that think luxury is determined only by size.*

It’s safe to say that neither the Suburban, nor the Cadillac Escalade with which it shares its hateful platform, are products targeted at TLCB Team. Which puts us in a bit of quandary today, as this incredible Lego creation very much is.

With Power Functions remote control, opening everything, and one of the most accurate and realistically detailed exteriors and interiors that we’ve ever seen, this incredible model by Flickr’s dgustafsson1317 is everything we look for in a blog-worthy build. It’s just a shame the subject matter is a Chevrolet Suburban.

We’ll move on now before we get a nose bleed, but you can see more of dgustafsson1317’s Chevy on Flickr at the link above, where there is a suitably enormous album available.

Lego Chevrolet Suburban

If there’s a car that sums up everything that was wrong with the American auto industry in the 1990s and 2000s, it’s probably this; the Chevrolet Suburban. Or the Cadillac Escalade. Or the Hummer H2. Or this. OK, there were a few, but the Chevy makes a strong case for itself. This Suburban is the work of TLCB regular Ralph Savelsberg and it’s considerably nicer than the real thing.

We’re not big fans of LDD here at The Lego Car Blog (Elves are relentlessly analogue…), but when something is this exceptional, we make an exception. The Chevy Suburban might not be the greatest car ever, but this model just might be. Phil Flipson is the creator; it’s there to be appreciated on MOCpages.
