Ha ha ha! That's genius!

It has exactly the "just a little too small" smart car feel. Can you show pics of the doors opened? Looks like the front opens.

Maybe you should make a refueling station too. Or is it more authentic not to have many refueling stations - just like real life!

I really like this design. I used to use those car bases totally differently - much lower - and as such had problems making the roof high enough. I may try making something similar to this now!

I wonder is there a way you could incorporate wing mirrors in some way?

Nice job on this one.  I think the grey roof looks a little "off" but otherwise it's quite nice, and the coordinating minfig is a nice touch.

This is awesome, benny! I really like the minifig you chose to put with it! :sweet: Have you considered putting some 1x2 lime green tiles on top of the front mudguard and raising the 1 x 2 black grill plate by 1 plate, so that the mudguard meets the hood? The whole thing is really well done and I like the SNOT technique you used. Great work. Thanks for sharing it with us.

By the way, as to the gender of your minifig, she reminds me of a bartender I know. Nobody knows if she's a man or woman at first either.

Unbelievable! These Gorians are indoctrinating AFOLs too! Next our MOCs will regulated by the government, as to how many pieces we are allowed to use. You could get shot and arrested and tortured for going over 100 pieces. Little satellite-tracked RFID tags in the bricks will let them know in advance... I'm going to let off some steam by building the biggest MOC I've ever made...  :hmpf_bad:

Seriously though, the future for Lego bricks will probably be plastic derived from biofine using second-gen biofuels (not just seeds - the whole plant by lignocellulosic digestion, therefore land usage is not an issue). So no fear there. Our children's children will have Lego too (as well as food!), it might even become less expensive.

I should have said, I think the minifig is good too. Just like someone who would have a smart car. Did she dye her hair to match it before or after she got it though?

Thanks for everyone's comment! Actually, the idea of minifig is from  " Edma Mode" in Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studio's The Incredibles. I like her so much!!!!!!

(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady

Cruised into a toy shop in town
lots of lego boxes, aged 8 to 12!
they a long lost love at first site
Baby maybe you're wrong, but you know it's all right
That's right

(That, that)
(That, that)

Backhome we're having the time
Of our lives until somebody say
Forgive me if I seem out of line
Then she whipped out her 4 x 2
And tried to stick it the wrong way

(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady

So never judge a box by it's cover
Or what you're going to build from it
Lego put me wise to time well spent
She had the body of a venus
Lord imagine my surprise

(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady
(That, that) Dude looks like a lady


Ooh what a funky lady
She like it, like it, like it, like that,
Ooh he was a lady

(That, that) Dude looks like a lady

(That, that) Dude looks like a lady



Barry thanks Steven Tyler and lots of lego bricks for inspiration!
not to mention this gender bender mini fig!

BRICK ON LEGO HEADS!

barry over an out!
now in stitches!

Never liked the Smart Cars. I mean, what's so smart about driving a car that'll get totalled because it hit a squirrel?

But, that's besides the point. You did a terrific job on the smart car design, although the roof seems a little bit out of place. I also like the treehugger you made... ;)
