Dragula

Lego Munsters Dragula Hot Rod

Some vehicles are metaphorically coffins-on-wheels (this, this and this for example), but today we can go one better! Designed by Hot Rod building legend George Barris, this amazing machine is the Dragula, as constructed for the 1960s TV comedy ‘The Munsters’. This marvellous Model Team recreation of the scary sportster is the work of Tim Inman (aka rabidnovaracer), and comes complete with side-stack exhausts, lantern head and tail lights, and Grandpa Munster himself. Head over to Tim’s photostream via the link above for a spooky good time.

Monster Mash

Lego Munster Coach

What with it being Halloween all the Elves are feeling spoooooky, and are trying to find scary Lego vehicles for us here at TLCB. So far they haven’t found a Lego Ssangyong Rodius, but they have found the next best thing; Herman Munster’s ‘Munster Koach’ by the Lego-ace Mad Physicist (who sounds pretty Halloweeny himself!).

The Munsters remind us of a time when monsters were creepy rather than gross* and – in this case – they were hot rodders too! You can see more of Herman and his ride over on Flickr. Fliiiiicker… (in a spooky ghost voice).

*Language caution advised. But the keyboardist is also worthy of note!
