I Get Around

Lego Surf Mech

Round round get around, I get around, yeah
(Get around round round I get around, ooh-ooh) I get around
From town to town (get around round round I get around)
I’ve a real cool mech (get around round round I get around)
I’m drivin’ real good tech (get around round round I get around)

I’m gettin’ bugged drivin’ up and down the same old road
I gotta mech with a van, it’s a wicked load
My buddies and me putting tracks in the street
Yeah, the bad guys runnin’ cos they can’t take the heat

The wise words of The Beach Boys there, slightly altered by the morons here at TLCB Towers to vaguely fit with today’s creation. Ok, we butchered a classic, but is was either that or we’d have to use this again. Anyway, the build; it’s a surfer-van-mech of course, from deep within the obscure mind of Dvd of Flickr. We’ve not really got any more to say than that, so it’s probably best if you check it our for yourselves at Dvd’s photostream. Head to the beach via the link above!

Totally Tubular!

Lego Surfer Hot Rods

Andrea Lattanzio aka Norton74 is heading to the beach! Both of these radical Model Team hot rods have appeared here at TLCB before, but the addition of a few surfboards and the threat of being eaten by a shark has made them even cooler! See the image in full at Andrea’s photostream via the link above, and you can find our original bloggings of the green Ford Model-T and black Ford Roadster via these links. Dude.

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.

Big Country

Lego Ford Country Wagon

Flickr’s Luke C appeared here earlier in the week with a lovely small-scale 1960s Ford Country station wagon, and now he’s built a Model Team version! You could call it A Big Country

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).

Surf ‘n Turf

Lego 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible

We thought the Chrysler Town & Country was a horrible American minivan, but it turns out that in 1948 it was something far more interesting. This gorgeous ’48 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible comes from newcomer Velocites, and it features some of the nicest wood and metal work we’ve seen on a Town scale car. There’s more to see at Velocites’ photostream – click the link above to make the jump to ’48.

Surfin’ T (Part II)

Lego Ford Hot Rod

Those of you with a good memory may recall seeing this beautiful Ford Model T hot rod here before. But last time it was red, and now it’s blue, which is a good enough excuse for us! You can see more of Norton74’s T-bucket on Flickr – click here to catch the wave.

Totally Tubular!

Lego VW T2 Surf

The totally radical Andrea Lattanzio is back dudes! We’re like, stoked, to see his new pavement ride, this primo ’60s Vee-Dub pick-up. It’s got space for his sticks and the beach bunnies can watch him rippin’ a honker the from the deck. See more of his awesome whip on MOCpages.*

*Alternatively;

One of the office’s favourite builders, Andrea Lattanzio, returns to TLCB! We’re very excited by his latest model, this brilliant 1960s Volkswagen T2 pick-up. There’s room in the back for his surfboards and the girls can watch him catching a big wave from the tailgate. See more of his superb creation on MOCpages.

Bermuda Shorts

1958 Edsel Bermuda Station Wagon

1958 Edsel Bermuda Station Wagon

Famous for having a front grill that resembled a lady’s, er… you know, Edsel was a heroic failure. But what a cool failure. Misterzumbi has built this epic ’58 Edsel Wagon, complete with wood-grain (that’s genuine Lego too) and a roof rack full of beachy things.
