Classic Sports Car
Opening bonnet, boot and doors. Detailed engine and interior.
About this creation


1960's convertible in old-skool bricks. (N.B: Now broken for parts)


(Click pictures to enlarge)


Front: Bonnet power bulge and open air intake. Unfortunately the steering wheel isn't connected to front wheels as the opening bonnet prevents a shaft.


Profile: Classic 1960s cigar shape bodywork. Not one for SNOTers; studs everywhere!


Top: Simple interior; red seats, grey dashboard, handbrake and gearstick.


Rear: Monocoque construction keeps the floor as low as possible but uses a lot of black plates.



This would probably look better with newer SNOT peices but if I start buying them I won't know when to stop!

I remember those tires! I must use them on a MOC sometime. This model reminds me of a Triumph Stag that a friend's dad had.

Quoting Rusty Shaquelford I really like this car. I'm a fan of older style MOCs made with real bricks and plates. I basically stopped buying sets when the whole "bley" disaster began, so I only have parts from the 1990s and early 2000s. MOCs like this give me so much inspiration. The stance is excellent. And I also like it because it isn't a Ferrari!
Thanks Rusty, and all the others below too : )

Studs are for winners, and this is full of win. After all, why hide what makes Lego what it is?

A beautiful car very well made. I love those old school technic wheels. Shame the steering isn't connected but it looks great with the wheels slightly turned in. Have you seen the thread in the BBA group?

Beautiful car! Keep your studded look its charming! And somebody has to teach the kids not to fear the stud lol. I'm going to attempt a studded 70's Merc SL probably a little bigger than this though :)

More nostalgia! The simple studs-up construction with exposed studs and the use of basic elements instead of more specialized ones gives this a classic LEGO feel.

Very nice roadster you got there ;P The classic style building fits thes tyle of the car and the details and such features like steering make it a perfect model, even if the car was not based on any particular. Although I must say it much reminds me of the later models of Datsun Fairlady roadsters.

Very clever design, and it is refreshing to see studs once in awhile. As for blacklisting - not going to happen, you expressed your thoughts in an intelligent manner, so kudos to you. Lee.

Thanks for the comment! I consider what you said to be the best compliment i've gotten yet. I do consider myself an "old skool lego maniac" (anyone remember those commercials?) and I hold the details of opening doors and detailed interiors/engines to be very important in a MOC vehicle. Your car here being a great example!

Good car Ape, i don't mind the studs. It's an old/classic car, it doens't has to be so smooth, in my opinion.

Hey man this is superb. But I have one tip: try to make it studless. Keep up the good work
