CotD: Hot Rods, Wet Droids, and Launching Bridges

Pick of the Day

1:8 Scale Classic American Hot Rod
by Drdesignz


Drdesignz has truly given us a gift with this work of art.  I don't have any reason to explain why this was my pick for the day. The MOC exudes detail and mechanical genius.   


Here is an excerpt of the technical details:

"The gear shifter has three positions, center being neutral. Forward opens the passenger door and pulling it back opens the driver's side door. Another Lego Power Function includes a second electric motor in the trunk, which turns an actuator that adjusts the rear suspension height. The battery box is also located in the rear, which is easily removed by opening the trunk (see flickr album). Another function includes the steering wheel, which does turn the front wheels."

All that and a minifig skull for the gear shift too!

The very impressive video is here.  If the above picture and the video don't convince you to support this, well, using words to explain why you should would be pointless.
