Hello and today, I will be showing my Chevrolet Impala NASCAR. As with most of my car models, it seats one minifigure and took around one night to build.

In this shot you can see the size of the Impala, along with the multiple stickered pieces from the Tiny Turbos set 8125 Thunder Raceway for the sponsers of a real NASCAR. One of the only parts of the car i'm not totally happy with is the front windscreen - I might cover the bottom part with some white tape to give it "lower" look.

The alternate views show the shape of the car and the sign (also from 8125) attached to the roof to create the racing number. Another minor problem is the 1x1 wedge sized gap near the rear wheel arch, which unless Lego invent a reverse cheese wedge ( :drool: ) is not really possible to fix.


I hope you liked my Chevrolet Impala NASCAR and comments or sugestions for improvement are more than welcome!

Awesome NASCAR 'TKOB'! The stickers really give it that necessary touch. Great idea for the orientation of the windscreens too. Do you plan on building more to go with this? Keep up the great builds&nbsp;&nbsp; <img src="http://www.eurobrick...t_classic.gif">

Can you add a 1x1 round plate in the hole behind the wheel?

I like that rear window, neat idea

If time and my wallet allow it, I might make 42 other NASACARs to go with it so I can have a proper race  :laugh:

I've now tried it and it really covers up a huge portion of the gap, thank you!
