Santa's Holiday Hot-Rod!
I was bored again, can you tell!?! Rather clear what it is, I made Santa an upgrade to his sleigh. A vast upgrade, mind you.
About this creation
Okay! First off, please don't sue me! Second of, some 4th wall commentary! Yay for you!!! This was originally planned as a small project I would nibble on all December, but I wound up spend 8+ hours on it and finishing most of it within the 1st two days of construction. Oops. Coicidentally, this is my 1st Rod, and more importantly, my 100th MOC!! Thanks for putting up will all my shenigans though the 1st 100. Now on with the snow...I mean "show" of course... yeah... thats right, "show"...







"Get down off there! There's pictures to be taken and posted!"




The front, with it's snazzy radiator and gas tank.




I'm glad I added the fenders, they make it look a lot cleaner.




The side, which shows the chop-top well.




The back fenders were fun to build, rather different than anything I previously built.




The back is rather simple, the bumper contains all the lights & license plate.




The bed is highly detailed and stuffed with presents, along with a small Christmas tree and ornaments.


Another view coming back around to the front.




I like this truck a lot, one of my new favorites.




Doors open...




...time for some functions!




Suicide doors, of course.




The tailgate opens nice and smooth.





Steering! I haz it. The fenders do turn in harmony with the wheels. No cheating here!


Left!




Enough of that, time for the engine to shine.




Of course for a Hot-Rod, only a massive V-8 with some sort of zany exhaust would do.




Mr. Penguin hold up the whole engine just so you can get a better view of it. Wasn't that nice of him?




Not sure why, but here's a shot of the engine compartment greeblies and steering without the engine.




Santa's has lots of toys to deliver, so I gave his truck a large, clean bed.




Wood-lined, none the less.




Mr. Penguin says"Hi, I have full instructions here




Perhaps you can see it, but in case you can't I'll tell you. Santa has a clear-plastic rear window! Not official Lego, but it add a nice touch in my opinion.




The interior is white with blue acsents for a cool, crisp feel. Like Santa doesn;t get enough of that at the North Pole...




The interior has steering to the front wheels controlled via the steering wheel, gas& brake, glove box, radio, clock, door handles, full white/blue trim, and various buttons and gauges and such.




Notice the lack of a shifter? Not on accident, but on purpose! How is Santa supposed to wave at parades and what-not if he has one hand on the wheel and one on the shifter? And let's not forget, he just stopped driving a sleigh.




Santa & Penguin riding in style and comfort.




Lots of comfort, it might look it on the front, but this ain't no rat-rod!




Some overall shots to finish...




...please please please don't sue me for saying Christmas!




Cya next year...kidding, I'll be posting penguin instructions later today!


Happy Holidays!

Thanks for visiting!

Great job. Really nice techniques in this Rod like the rear arches. Excellent engine too. Check out the Rod Club (group no.47), we'd love to have this included in time for Christmas!

Whoa, Santa's got a nice car! It's all great and all but... PENGUINS DON'T LIVE IN THE NORTH!!! I'm sure you knew that.

What a fun build! The working steering is great, and I love the fenders. Also, nice job with the flatbed lining, the wood panel feel is very clean. Great work!

Sweet! Good pardoy on the traditional sleigh and reindeer. This is a good car in its own respect, but the holiday touch really makes this great.

impressively beautiful. had to laugh - the fender (front): I also built (for my current project (still working)). I like them so much - even on Santa's Holiday Hot-Rod :-)
