1950s Custom Surf Pickup
After numerous delays and mishaps, Its Finally Done! I spent about three days building this truck and several weeks waiting for parts to arrive. I built this truck after gaining inspiration from Patrick L's Chevrolet S10 pickup and Lino M's Chevrolet Impala Wagon from Flickr. I'm personally very proud of this creation considering that it is almost entirely stud less. Featuring a bright yellow surfboard, chrome bumpers and polished steel rims, this is one cool car to drive to the beach.
About this creation
The front of this car is inspired by Patrick L's Chevrolet S10 as well as numerous other cars. The hood scoop on this car was supposed to be bigger but I ran out of 1x1 roof tiles.

I just love the shape of this car, especially the back. I also like the surfboard, which gives the car a better look. (Surfboard Credit to Lino M of Flickr).

I thought of using my Mustang V8 but later found out it looked horrible inside a classic car. This new engine is a carborated Chevrolet V6. (Credit to Dylan Denton for some parts of the engine)

It was pretty hard to make this interior look good, Several designs don't fit under the 2.5" roofline. I made two leather seats without heardrests and a center console to match.

I like the look the chrome bumpers give to this car.

The back is pretty easy to build but requires 24 1x3 smooth roof pieces.

Here's an extra picture.

Quoting Justin G. goood truck. i was wondering if your still making that gmc camper for the group? i would love to have it added to the group.
I am definitely going to make it however, I can't tell you when it will be done. I predicted December 2010 but my school stuff has pushed that back tremendously.

Hello Everyone, After the success of my 1950s Surf Pickup, I'm thinking of making either a 2009 F-150 undercover tow truck or a Custom GMC Motorhome. Both vehicles require lots of effort with the F-150 consisting of a Mindstorms NXT kit and the GMC Motorhome requiring $250 worth of Pick-a-Brick elements.

Very smooth look due to the studlessness (<- is this a word?) Cool board by the way! A sunny beach as background would push this up to 10 points, but I guess you are content with 9/5?

Wow, this is awesome :) I love the back and the smooth transitioning curves. Nice job on the surfboard too! Perhaps this could use a front-end that's just as exciting as the back, but for now it's still a great creation! Nicely done! 5/5
