LEGO is the world’s #1 toy company for good reason: Its ubiquitous sets are as fun for the young at heart as they are for kids. If you grew up building LEGO City and Spacesports and are still building, or have passed your old bricks on to your children, these car builds offer exciting new possibilities.
Blackert—also the author of Motorbooks’ How to Build Brick Cars and How to Build Brick Airplanes—here uses his unique "common-chassis" platforms for scale-model cars to recreate 15 famous TV and movie vehicles from beginner to advanced builds, including:
- Knight Rider's KITT Firebird
- Herbie from The Love Bug
- Mad Max's Falcon Interceptor
- The Speed Racer Mach V
- Wayne's World Pacer
- Austin Powers' Shaguar
- And more
