Ford Fairlane 1959
The plan was to build a convertable with electric roof but I couldn't get it to work and still make it look so good. Too bad, maybe next time! But it does have a detailed engine and working suspension ;-)

This is amazing! No wonder I couldn't make a proper convertible in 8 wide, even at this scale the top still takes up the whole trunk! The convertible part speaks for itself but I also like the interior and those rear fins. Epic Job!

Tricky question. Maybe for the challenge, maybe for the thrill of seeing things happen by themself, or maybe because I have so many motors ;-)Greetings, and thanks for the compliment!
Quoting The Builder Awesome replica! I have a question, why do you try to motorize so many things?

Hi David, glad people like it! No, it don't steer but the roof and trunk are hinged. Greetings, Fred
Quoting David Luders Great MOC! There's a lot of favorable "buzz" about your car on the Eurobricks forum http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=47100 . There is a question about whether your car can steer. Also, are the front edge of the hardtop roof, and the front edge of the trunk lid, HINGED like the real car?

Sorry Louis, I don't have instructions, just build it and take it apart ;-)

Thanks for the compliments Vibor. And about the windshield: most car builders on Mocpages leave the windshield open but I like to put some glass in it ;-) Greetings, Fred
Quoting Vibor Cavor Love it! That triangle shaped studs on the trunk door is a nice detail! The working roof, the engine, the inside! It is perfect. I'd do something about that windshield, It's got maybe to many of those minifig scaled windshields but that's your style I guess ;))

Fred, this is by far one of the best wide-scale cars I've seen... period! It has so much working detail packed in. It was hard to grasp the scale at first, then I noticed the 4-wide bonnets used on the fenders... this thing is huge! It is my favorite creation of yours, and you have built some fantastic creations! Regards, Eric.

Nice model ! Great details, especially the engine and paintwork detail. Shame the electric roof didn't work; I'm sure it'd have been quite something coming from you. Great work :)

Hard choice, for me too ;-)
Quoting Nate Andrews Don't worry about the electric roof, I think the amazing scale and technical features more than make up for it!! And that crazy engine is the best part, of course. Now I can't decide which I like better... This, or your funny car...

Impressive! Lots of things to like. Especially I like the studded texture you made on the trunk. The folding functioning roof is great. The motor detail is stunning. Im not too fond of the tail-lights though... ;-)
