Hello,

let me present you my latest MOC, it is Model Team version of the "Baja-Boot" desert racer.

The original car was built by Vic Hickey in 1967 for the race Mexican 1000 which came to be known as the Baja 1000. The car was driven by Steve McQueen and Bud Ekin. In the first appearance the car unfortunately retired, but it has long racing history with the victory in 1969.

Now the Baja-Boot is owned by petrolhead James Glickenhaus the owner of many interesting pieces.

The lego version features HOG steering with the spare tyre, fake engine with exhaust pipework and some characteristic details of body and interior.

PS: thank to member erix for posting his technic version of Baja-Boot which compelled me to finish this MOC after almost a half year of catching dust.

Very nice looking car! The small details really make this stand apart - the hand brake, filling caps, wipers etc really add charm.
