A simple design that took me an hour (or two):

Is this the vehicle you're attempting to depict through the medium of LEGO, old Brickster?

This is a Model T that spanned 1908/1909 - 1927 (possibly a little earlier than the Adventure theme). So in all comparison, the cars during the Adventure theme may have been a little more modern than the Model T, but provides a good inspiration for my MOC.

Anyhow, it still looks appropriate from the Adventurers theme on its own, but next I wonder how it looks in juxtaposition with the Adventurers sets. Do you happen to have any built Adventurer sets that you could place tthis Model-T next to and take images of?

One think I notice about your Model-T and the pictures I've seen of an actual Model-T is the real vehicle has rear seats while the yours appears to have 2. Was this an intentional due to piece limitation/restriction or were there other reasons for neglecting to add rear sets?

Limited length and I wanted it to be a two-seater (front seats only). Originally, it only had one seat (all in black), but I added the adventure seat piece to give it two seats.

Merely an afterthought saved for small promotional sets, but not always...
So Brickster you might have found a gap in the Adventurers' market - providing them with decent automotive transport!

I think that although more nice vehicles would be cool (most of the Adventurers places needed more rugged looking vehicles since they were in rugged terrain), the Adventurers sets really needed better buildings! Egyptian should have had a huge Pyramid - same size as the Dragon Fortress... the Jungle should have had an Aztek Temple, Dino Island should have just not had buildings period (it should have had a large cargo ship (bigger than the one they already had) that Sinister Sam was using to trap all the dinosaurs and bring them to a park in the city - not exactly a building but I can imagine some of the cool little rooms it could have. And the Orient Expedition already had a good one, but each area could have used somethign - The Indian Palace definately could have been better)
But this is leading off the subject - which is a pretty good Adventurers Car.
