Hi all,

technic skis work well as fenders on vintage cars, but unfortunately the skis don't exist in black, so certain rather elegant types of vintage cars can't be built with them.

The idea here is to tilt the mudguard (new type) section of the car to get a relatively smooth fender line. I've called the first type "Vintage Speedster", the second is - in spite of the missing "Emily" - clearly a Rolls-Royce, even if I don't know if exactly this type of bodywork existed. But there will be some more versions of this type of vintage car anyway.

C&C welcome as usual, many thanks for looking. More pics of the Speedster you can find here.

Very cool car 'ER0L' ! I'm not the biggest fan of vintage cars, but this car is awesome! I can see a lot of different techniques  to make the car, like the flag piece on the front.

Beautiful! Really nice built! At first glance it was hard to see it was Lego.

The touch is done with the chrome pieces and the bumper.

I agree - it's the second one that does it for me (it really is unmistakably a Rolls). I'm not keen on using the trans-clear cheese slopes as a window on the first one; I prefer the panels, or - obviously, if you've seen my cars - the hinge tile with 1x4 windscreen. But I know you've said you don't like the hinge tile solution, although I can't for my life understand why...

Using the mudguards like that is obviously clever, but I think the bar/binoculars/flag combo is even better - it makes the whole front section flow very nicely. The whole front end is very well done.

Thanks a lot LegofreakKO345! Glad you like it. The flag was the only part that came to my mind to close this section.

Thanks! The bumper is not my own idea, though, I first saw it on Matt Brown's fantastic 20's American LaFrance Pumper, but it's already used on the vehicle of the 10197 Fire Brigade.

Thanks a lot L@go, very glad you like it! Why I don't like using the hinge tile on this type of cars:

  • There is a moving part where there should be something fixed.
  • The hinge adds too much to the height where a low silhouette is needed. The main issue here is that you already need 3 levels above the cockpit to get the steering wheel in the right position. The step between hood and cockpit shouldn't be too tall.

(I have seen your new cars and will still comment on them.)

Any instructions for this? This is beautiful. I definitely plan on building something similar for my classy citizens.

Thanks a lot TheLegoDr! Sorry, no instructions. But the build itself isn't that complicated. Maybe I can make a partial breakdown to show the crucial sections, but this will take some time.

Thanks a lot Curtis, glad to hear this from you!



Again, I would like to add another version of the "tilted fender concept" - a four- (or rather three-)seater with a different front section. In my opinion it shows that the concept is much more versatile than the ski versions.

[Edit] To the moderators, since this is rather a work in progress: When indexed, in my opinion this can be considered as three MOCs - the Speedster, the Rolls with the folded hood and the 4/3-seater. But do as you please. Thanks a lot, the Town Vehicle Index is always a fantastic source of inspiration! [/Edit]
Moderators have way more important things to worry about than this. So I did it. :grin:
Hopefully my indexing fulfilled your expectations.  There were MOCs in three posts, so I indexed each post as its own MOC.
