The Monsterfighters Vampyre Hearse was THE set that brought me back into building and buying Lego. I absolutely love the original hearse but wanted it to lose it's cartoony and grotesque (and immature) looks and make it a bit more realistic. So I chopped and channeled the car making it lower, more massive, and sporting a new longer wheelbase. Then I replaced all of the horror add-ons, and created a more subtle yet bigger engine. Now it looks like a proper V8 instead of a V6. You can still open the roof, but I disabled the playfunction. I wasn't going to 'play' with it anyway. ;-)
About this creation
^ ...the only disappointment with the original set (and my modified version) is that it's way to big for Citybuildings, modulars and more importantly, my modified Haunted House. So I build a 7stud version (r). Will upload it soon.
