Yes here it is, the best ever hotrod building contest!

Hosted by yours truly...



Now a hotrod is not just the classic open engine model A Ford with big wheels.

It can be any tricked out car you like, just as long as the bodywork and/or engine are heavily modified. An old pick up can also make a great hotrod.

Below are some pictures for your inspiration.


The rules are simple:


  • Scale is not important, but the car must have and fit a driver.
  • Most hotrods have a story, make up something good!
  • Stickers are allowed.
  • Customized official Lego parts are allowed, non lego stuff is not.
  • I know what most on BS looks like and all the sets too, so don’t enter those. Be creative and make a new MOC.
  • The contest will run for 6 weeks and ends by the 9th of may.
  • Entries can be posted here.
The prizes are known!!

First prize is the lucky number 13 rod:

For second best, our fine member Benk has offered to make 2-3 waterslide decals for your entry!


So good luck all you carbuilders and pimpers, i’ll see you on the road!

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

As long as it is a sporty one with spoilers and a big engine, why the hell not?

Good luck! *y*

Uh-oh. I'm not prepared for this contest!  :-$ Gotta think of something good if I enter!  *skull*

Good contest idea, Cap'n!  *sweet*

EDIT: Question. Actually, more a clarification.

"Scale's not important", so I trust Fabuland scale is OK?

I have a Viking-Force idea for this... can it be non-contemporary and non-realistic?

You can ofcourse build a viking themed car, if that is what you mean.
Let's just say it needs an engine and wheels and it must be tricked out.

I realize you said it must be a new MOC captain, but can it be a very heavily modified set?

You did not just say that! Wait, you did...       X-D

I am sure that Captain Green Hair will let you build whatever you like, considering that it wont make it out the drive of your brickshelf without stalling.  :-P

This is great! Can it have eight wheels and mechanical arms and space lasers and wings and a drilling mode and death cannon, so long as I give it big wheels and an exposed engine?

You've got a point, but then again, I do ever so much enjoy being a genocidal maniac.  X-D

Make a Steampunk car, that would be awesome. I'm sure you would be great at it.  *sweet*

Now I still need to think of something... |-/
