The Ford Model A was one of the most famous iconic cars from the 1920s and 1930s. Manufactured between 1927 and 1931, it was designed to replace Henry Ford's successful Model T (1908-1927). Today, the car is still very popular. There are Model A clubs and a lot of people like to use the Model A to make stylish hot rods!
The goal of this project is to encourage The LEGO Group to manufacture sets featuring popular antique cars. The Volkwagen sets are nice, but it would be great to see some other iconic vehicles. A lot of antique car enthusiasts also like building model kits, so a LEGO car may appeal to their interests as well.
However, this project needs your help, and I will be taking all of your comments and suggestions into condideration. Which car do you prefer? Would you like a set with the car only or would you want it in a playset?
Thanks for your support and happy building!
I do use custom parts in my concepts for some of the minifigures from companies including: BrickArms, BrickForge, BrickWarriors and Arealight. Chromed bricks are also made by ChromeBricks and ChromeBlockCity.
