90's NASCAR Racer
For all my fellow NASCAR fans. There's a very interesting story behind this car. I was looking through Johannes R's Brickshelf folder a few weeks ago, and was shocked to find an absolutely fantastic-looking stock car in his folder of abandonned projects! It seemed a shame to let it sit there unfinished, so I decided to finish what was started.
About this creation

Now let's get things spinning! (In NASCAR, this is called spinning out.)



















































This is my favorite angle of the car, because of the way the lines flow along.



From the back. This is usually what you see before the car dissapears over the horizon.



Take a look at that chassis! It's complete with a driveshaft and twin exhaust pipes.



Notice the yellow 2x4 plate at the back? I put that there to look like the bottom of the fuel cell. But more on that later.



Remember that boring engine design from the Charger? It has been... (deep breath) REDEEMED!! Just combine a couple of different colors, slap on a curved 2x3 plate to look like an air filter, and you've got yourself one sweeeeeeet engine. Uh, vroom? No, wait....

VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!! Whoa, I just scared myself...



A better shot of the engine. Doesn't the yellow look nice against the blue?



Yes, Firas! There's an opening trunk. But for groceries this isn't. On a NASCAR racer, this where you'll find the gas tank... Uh, fuel cell.... Call it whatever you want.











Now let's take a look at some internal shots, for a better view of the interior, and a little bit of the internal structure.



One of the cool things about this car is it comes apart in several large sections, which makes it extremely easy to work on. But don't think for one second that this makes the car fragile! Once you put it all back together, it's as solid as a rock.
(a blue plastic rock?!)



The interior is plain and barren, strictly for racing.



To bad it's not a slightly larger scale. I could've added a nice roll cage...



Now let's swing 'round to the back to get a better shot of that fuel cell.



Here's where the fuel cell comes together. Just look through that hole in the technic beam, and you can see how the yellow plate on the bottom and the yellow plates on the top create this little illusion. It actually looks like the fuel cell goes all the way through the chassis, just like on the real thing. Pretty cool, if I do say so myself.



Update: March 24th, 2009. I was just exploring the idea of adding race numbers. Thirty-nine is actually my unlucky number. Whenever I'm playing an arcade racing game, mainly NASCAR, I always finish 39th, no matter how hard I race. I must be cursed!



Instead of using decals, I was able to build it into the side of the car with yellow bricks.



There's two problems with this, though. First you get a weird reversed image of the number on the inside of the car. And second, using all those small bricks in the side makes the car kind of fragile. I highly doubt that I'll keep the car this way, but at least I know it's possible.



NASCAR racers, old and new. Well, if you can call the 90's new!



Wait, what's this?! A challenge!!!



Aaawww, crud! It looks like the old technology still rules!
[NO LEGO CARS WERE HARMED IN THE FILMING OF THIS RACE.]

A great Nascar, I love the engine! And yes, I am a Jeff Gordon fan, you should have seen me when he won last weekend! Since it is a 90's Nascar, ever thought of making a black "Mellow Yellow" 51 car? Being a Nascar fan you probably know, but that is the car Tom Cruse drove in Days of Thunder.

I give it a 10/10! You definately brought the NASCARs of the 90's to life..., and the wrecks of the 90's. By the way, I happen to like Jeff Gordon, but my fav is Tony Stewart.

Quoting Dalton Brooks i have changed my mind about the ill buy one of your cars thingy i want either this one or the daytona whoa i sound a little bosy saying I WANT so "i would like would" be better
I feel honored that you'd like to buy one of these cars! There's two problems, though. First, I only have so many pieces. If I sent you one of these cars, I'd also be sending you a lot of pieces that I might need later. Second, shipping is EXTREMELY expensive these days. So, if I'm able to get some more pieces, and if the prices for shipping improve, we can talk buisness. I'm not saying yes or no, just "not yet".

Quoting Legofanatic 18dude Well, I happend to be at the '09 Watkins Glen race when Gordon NAILED Sam Hornish Jr. Kyle Busch finished 2ND!!! (Laughter that is three times as evil!)
Really? Today Jeff Gordon finished 2nd, but Kyle Busch "NAILED" the wall, and finished 23rd!! (laughter that's four times as evil!)

It looks great but I think both of the exaust pipes should be on the same side of the car.

Quoting Johannes R He he nice that you liked it. It came out too "roundy" for my taste and I wasn't quite sure if it even looked right so I ditched it. That number on the side defiantly makes that car stand out!
Thanks, Johannes! Your cars are awesome, and it's so great to have the designer's opinion! I hope you like it despite the car being a bit too "roundy", and hope to see more from you soon.

Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you like it, but all the credit should go to Johannes R for getting this thing started. Here's a link to the original: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=3110499 I can't imagine why Johannes didn't finish this car! It was looking totally awesome.

Quoting Matt S. The shape is great and detailing balences it nicely. I'm not a fan of the plain blue I mean com'on! It's a nascar racer it at least needs numbers! But other than that, a very smooth build!
Yeah, I thought about adding numbers, but think about it. Where am I going to get some decals that fit the side of a Lego model? No, I haven't given up on adding numbers, but for now, let's just call it a test car.
