Classic Hot Rod

15 comments

I had a lot of fun building this classic. I am 66 years old, and have been building with Lego since I was a boy, getting my first sets of bricks in specialty shops in New York City, before they were widely available in America.

Although it looks deceptively simple, getting the V-8 engine form, the curved bottom form of the cab, and the sloped roof were all challenges that required quite a bit of experimentation. I think that this would be a great set for young builders, because it involves some unusual building techniques that would expand their creativity.
