Vintage Roadster V2
This time it starts with a wise, witty, and accurate quote: "If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0" - Unknown.
About this creation


Yes, the "future version" I mentioned on my earlier roadster is here! Blending the good looks of the roadster with the playability of my first vintage car, this is my best car build yet. Enjoy!


The exhaust pipes were raised a plate, which made the front wheel covers looser over the front wheels. Yes, it rolls this time.


This version is two studs longer than my first roadster, which allowed me to put the driver's seat in front of the rea axle, which in turn allowed me to lower it by two plates, which meant I could seat a minifigure in the car this time around. His head is still a bit through the roof, but it's small enough that it's only noticable from low angles. I made the slant on the back shallower to help hide the added length.


Taillights were another addition, and the easier one to execute. The design of the rear bumper has proven quite useful from a construction standpoint.


The design for the back should be familiar to anyone who saw my previous car. There were actually quite a few changes to this part of the car, but most of them were hidden away on the interior... more about that later.


This time I was careful to make sure both headlights were pointed straight ahead before I photographed the build.


Here's the side-on view, which really shows the shaping of the passenger compartment and the back. Here it's apparent that our brave driver (or rather, a ghost of a past version of our brave driver. Top Gear fans will know what I'm talking about) has his head slightly through the roof... but at this point it wasn't a big enough problem that I would bother to fix it.


Again, this is the most common view of this car... the back.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the opportunity to take more pictures, which I'll have to do later. They'll show the functional side of this build... there are a bunch of added playability features. Until then I'll give you a simple list:
Bonnet/Hood: The shape is still the same, I haven't come up with a better design yet. It's designed to come off easily, to show off a big, shiny V8 that turns this beauty into a growling beast. Pictures will be coming in the future.
Wheels: They all spin now.
Doors: I attempted to make opening ones, but I couldn't do it without major sacrifice of asthetics. The roof hinges open and the driver will come out easily, so putting your minifigures in and out isn't an issue.
Passenger Compartment: The car seats one minifigure, with hat or helmet, comfortably.
Boot/Trunk: It opens, and there's more than enough space for one person's luggage.

I'll be getting photographs demonstrating all these things sometime in the near future, as well as a photograph demonstrating how good this looks with the #10194 Emerald Night.

Thanks for viewing, ratings, comments, compliments, and criticisms are very much appreciated.

This is an absolute beauty! really sleak! I've just made a moc to this sort of scale (truck and chipper) fitting the minifigs in is a bit of a headache isn't it?!

This reminds me of Cuela Deville's car (I probably didn't spell that right.)

i love the elegance of it s shape! very graceful, i especially like that figs fit inside, and for that solution about it s head, try inversing your roof plate, with your hood-roof part, it has an extra layer-space, for fig heads clearance! i think alook at my limo rolls could inspire you for the front too, as i think it would look better with a bar as bumper on the front too! great work!

Quoting Fred Ottens It's fabulous, looks a bit like a Morgan maybe?
A +8, perhaps, although I'd need to replace the pistol exhaust pipes with vents. Interesting idea, I hadn't noticed the resemblance. Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments.

Just as brilliant as the first, yet with some worthy new details for sure. I just can't get over the cleanly smoothness of this build.

Quoting Rick W. it looks like the car from that Lego Indiana Jones 1 game that car you have to build in the first level of the second movie. good job
That car has inspired all my vintage cars to date, so that's probably why. Thanks for commenting!
Quoting Ben 289 smooth look. very well build. 5/5
Thanks!

Quoting Thoy Bradley Speaking of Top Gear, the minifigs head through the roof reminds my of Jeremy trying to hop into a Ford GT40 in a parking lot... This version is just as cool as the first. Love the exhausts, but think you need to raise the cab by 1 plate to overcome your minifig prob ;) ~Thoy
Actually, when I started this build it did have a taller cab, but I didn't like how it looked... it made the car look less sleek and fast to me. The artist in me overcame the engineer in me on that one, but maybe in the future I'll come up with a better method for fitting the minifigures in. Thanks for commenting!
Quoting Everyone Else
Thanks everyone!

Quoting -Senator Chincilla - Sweet, I like the how the car has a 'sweeping' appearance. The back is better than V.1 in my opinion.
Thanks!
Quoting Zane Houston this is very nice, i love how smooth it is. that last picture kiiiinda looks like an angry face. great job!!
My word... it does! Intriguing... thanks for commenting.
Quoting A Monkey I like the hupcaps. Don't know if they were on there before, I just noticed. Still haven't found a way around the hood, eh?
Nope. Perhaps a future version will have a more tapered hood instead of more detail under the hood, but for now I think I'll let this particular project be and move onto something else. Those hubcaps have been on since my first vintage car, but they're a little more prominent in this design because of the way the car's lines flow.
