Wow, the LaFerrari, McLaren P1, and Lamborghini Veneno all unveiled at Geneva?! My hands feel so restless! I can't wait to sit among my (or should I say "our") LEGO and build a new car. It's genuinely torturous to have to sit on the couch all day while I recover.... I wouldn't say it's a fun thing to do.... This is really killing me!

What do you guys think of the LaFerrari? http://www.caranddriver.com/news/2014-ferrari-laferrari-photos-and-info-news

Worst Ferrari name ever! Car looks great though.

I'm most excited about the GT86 convertible.

P.S. What surgery are you recovering from?

Yeah, its name will take a while to get used to. I think it's my new favorite car, though.

The convertible seems really cool too.

It's a scrotal chord cyst surgery that I'm recovering from.

I think the Lamborghini Veneno is as ugly as heck! I love the P1 and LaFerrari though. I think Ferrari could have came up with a much better name. I really would have perfered F70.
Do you guys think the Enzo is ugly?

The Enzo is very cool, a truly historic car. The LaFerrari looks epic and has epic statistics, apart from the name... But seriously, How can they make an 800 bhp strong V12 plus an 160 bhp hybrid engine? This car amazed me!

I think the McLaren is epic too, but agreed that the Veneno is just ugly!

My all-time favorite Ferrari is the F40 though.

Ouch. You have my sympathy - the same thing happened to me when I was 19, and it's no fun is it ? Hope you make a quick recovery. As for this supercarfest, I'm strangely ambivalent about all of them, except perhaps the upcoming Porsche. I'd rather have a GT86 that's easier to enjoy - If yours goes missing, Ape, you now know where it might be...

I agree. I thought I read wrong at first when I saw that its engine is a 6.3 liter V12 which revs to 9250 rpm!

I think the Enzo is impressive, but it isn't pretty.

A lot of supercars fall into this category for me; take off the big wheels, spoilers etc and you often have quite an unappealing shape.

The new McLaren P1 however (and the new, ergh... 'LaFerrari') both look great.

My personal fave is the new Jaguar F-Type, but that's because it looks quite a lot like the S2K : )

Anyone else seen the latest episode of Top Gear USA and got as annoyed as I did in the first 5 minutes?!

Big piece on the Ford GT40 and all about how American it is. Except of course, that it was designed and built in England, but they didn't mention that.

No, I didn't see it. I saw a couple videos of TG USA on YouTube a while back and hated it, so I don't bother to waste my time watching it anymore.

What I hate about UK is they don't upload full reviews anymore to their YouTube channel - only behind the scenes videos. :-(

This has happened to me too! ;) I have asked my grandma yet. This really has nothing to do with it yet, but she is extremely gullible, so I told her some cars have 5 wheels, She didn't think it existed (neither did I), but you tube came to the rescue! They had a few videos of cars with 5 wheels.

MortalSwordsman is setting up the next chapter of CRTs!
http://www.flickr.com/groups/2163387@N20/

Due to MOCpages' unreliability a few of us are becoming more active on Flickr.

The Flickr chapter will not replace this group, and if you're a Flickr user please come and join us!

If MOCpages continues in its current state we'll make a call as to where we are most active.

Hi Guys,

I will approve your requests shortly, I have some editing to do first. There are several changes as the Flickr format will not allow for individual teams, so be sure to check out the new rules. There are also one or two fun little differences to look out for. I also need Malte or Ape to add the group logo (I donít have the original file). Hopefully we can all make it a success just like we did here on MP.

<span class="serif">HI!<br>
<br>
My name is Thomas Graafland . I'm a 15 year old TFOL and I live in Holland (dus reacties mogen in Nederlands). Besides Lego I play saxophone and baseball, both of them for already 5 years. Most of my spare time and money go in to Lego's.<br>
<br>
I really think that my MOC's are improving compared to my first MOC's I posted when I just created this account. My first uploads where just simple, undetailed minigure scaled MOC's. When you watch to the right, you can see that my most popular MOC's are mostly my most recent uploads. But because I don't want to delete my old MOC's you'll still be see some of my old, less good creations. ;-)<br>
<br>
You probably already spotted that I build with normal Lego bricks and with Lego Technic. I always try to vary between normal and Lego Technic, so that I can keep you all happy. Also, I'm sometimes combining the two. <br>
<br>
I would realy appreciate any comments but please don't reporte my bad english to me cause I already know that it isn't so good. ;-P<br>
<br>
By far my favorite group on MOCpages is the <a href="http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/17724">Classic Race Teams </a> group. It's definitely worth taking a look!<br>

CRTs on Flickr!

MortalSwordsman is setting up the next chapter of CRTs!
http://www.flickr.com/groups/2163387@N20/

Due to MOCpages' unreliability a few of us are becoming more active on Flickr.

The Flickr chapter will not replace this group, and if you're a Flickr user please come and join us!

If MOCpages continues in its current state we'll make a call as to where we are most active.

Hi guys,

I'd like to join the flickr group, too. I'm already waiting for a couple of days, now to be accepted.

OK... I'm going to make a tough call...

Whilst no doubt I'll still check into MOCpages most weeks and see what's going on, I'm going to give Flickr a proper go.

Few of you will actually read this, what with the Activity Bar being broken, the main images broken, and the uploaded broken, but if you do - in order to keep this community alive I think Flickr is probably our best option.

Let's get the Group MortalS set up going, and if we end up needing a new home away from MOCpages, we'll have one with the lights and heating switched on : )

Hello All

I need to update the names in Scuderia Ferrari and was wondering - what should our policy be for long inactive members who have claimed a vehicle but not posted it?

Should it be up to the discretion of the team owner?

And then... same as above but for long-dead empty claimed teams - should they be passed on to new owners?

What your your thoughts Classic Racers?

Cheers

I'd say first comment on one of their creations and ask if they are still doing something on it. If there comes no reaction, we'd best ask if someone else wants to take the team/car and otherwise just delete it?

For the first one, I say have people vote on it, the second one, yes.

Who saw the season 20 finale of Top Gear over the weekend?

I've gone off TG a bit, I do still watch it but I don't love it any more (too stupid and scripted), but that finale was the best thing I've seen on TV in years. And probably the best thing TG has done in years too. Proud to be British!

It's on BBC iPlayer now for UK group members, starting about 20 mins from the end : ) Enjoy!

Agree about TG generally - that Hovervan piece made me want to throw the computer out of the window; a shame as it was a good machine itself - certainly not built by the three 'wise' men... The last 20 minutes of the last one did redeem them somewhat.

I thought it was just me thinking they were a bit off! I'd better go watch the latest one, I only saw the first half of it last night...

I did. My idea it was a very weak season.

Nope. Is there a way people in America can watch full UK TG episodes other than Netflix?

Just had a count-up of all our race cars, parts trucks and transporters in teams on the main page; we're up to 52 (inc. one waiting to be added)!

I didn't expect to have even close to this many *at all* when this group was started, plus we have another 40 in the group pool.

Anyways, a huge well done to everyone who's signed-up and built a vehicle : ) I think before this group existed there weren't really any classic racing vehicles on MOCpages, and now many of the most famous car builders and creations on the 'pages come from this group.

Nick B will be flying the flag at the Great Western Lego Show too, which until now has featured almost no vehicles of any kind.

Next, world domination.
