1923 Model T Ford Hotrod

Yesterday I finaly got the time to build myself a hotrod. It started out as a yellowbucket, but I soon realized I had better bricks in white. I used quite a bunch of my childhoodbricks too! For wheels I used the all four from the Pixar Cars set Lightning McQueen. Ofcourse, they are not very suitable for a traditional hotrod I'd really like to build. But, with some Lego-imagination the wheel look like they've been wrapped in whitewalls. The tires itself are still far too wide but I don't have any other options but the 80's technic wheels. Which I still can't make em more appealing...
About this creation
Hey guys.
Today I had some time on my hands again so I got the bricks out for a second time this week. While building this hotrod I didn't had a particular engine in mind and after some comments from you guys I decided to build a more acurate 'existing' engine. A Ford Flathead to be specific. I put in some more details like the carburators and waterhoses, What do you guys think?





Now, help this Lego Maxi-figure make up his mind on what engineblock to use in his T-bucket! ;-)

Quoting Joost Cumps All my apologies for the nothing-less-but-self advertising comment, but have you seen my slightly-too-wide front wheels? http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/375334
Yeah, I was checking out that build of yours an hour ago. Nice one! Lot's of details, and yeah, those bit too wide fronttires aren't that bad... ;-)

Quoting Hot Rod Really nice Model T Rod! I agree, that's too bad there's no alternative for those to wide wheels... :/ Otherwise, hat new flathead engine is really cool with his well detailled carburators! The only point to change, for me, are: wheels (too bad you/we can't) and your front steering, 'cause it's a good "functionnal system" but not good lookin'one... :/ 4/5!!! ; )
Thanks! Yeah, if I stumble upon a pair that are the same diameter but less wide I"ll change them instantly. I've been searching for other frontend-sollutions, but I couldn't find a better one. I don't have much lego to spare and my only option is 80's Technic pieces. Now that Ibthink of it, maybe I'll do a suicide frontend with those pieces! Just to keep it traditional ;-) If you have other suggestions, please share! (Keep in mind that this is just a medium scale car.)

Quoting Dave Benson Excellent work! I have plans for an RC hotrod in the future :)
An RC Hotrod would be awesome! I'd like to see this one remote controlled... That would be very difficult I think. I had to compromise a lot in looksdepartement, but RC means ...It really has to function!

Quoting Cheryl P A good looking vehicle. The Thirties was a great era for cars. Classic styling. Well done.
Thanks Cheryl, I agree. Especially hotrodded 1930-somethin versions. ...Although this Model T is of a 1923 vintage ofcourse... ;-)

Thanks guys! Those technic sprocket look even better turned around, but that would make the wheels even wider. if I had slim wheels I'd turn em around. A flathead yes, but with a few tweeks it becomes an Ardun- or a Hemi engine. Because of the slightly oversized scale compared to the rest of the car you could see this as a mix between the three. Maybe I should make choices and build just a flathead or just a hemi.

Really nice build. I particularly like the use of the Technic sprockets as finned drum brakes and the 4x2 holed plates as rocker covers; they really give that flathead look.

Merci peeps! Yes, the wheels came out better than 'good enough'. I think it's still too bad they are soooo wide, especially on the front, but I really don't have a better alternative. The hood-ornament is an item from the Monster Fighters theme, (or was it the friends set I bought for tree-parts...) I think a model T and Diamonds go hand in hand. Yes, the white came out great. Especially with the contrasting red. It really helps creating the late '50s vibe I was after.

Really nice hotrod man! I don't mind the 'something-too-wide' frontwheels, you'll soon find out why :-)
