Is it bad I knew this was topgear before seeing the Stig or any of the cars. Its James May's horrible taste in sweaters and Richard Hamonds leather jacket over an open dress shirt that were the first to come to my eye
I had that truck too.
Does anyone recall the old (20 years ago) town Bike shop? It was yellow. It was one of my first "town" sets.
Also, to you super Lego people. Is there away to get the old build scheets? I would love to rebuild that bike shop.
I grew up on Legos from the early 80's. I saved most of them which is well over two large garbage bags full. This thread has inspired me to get them out and start building again....at the age of 34. I have a 4 month old boy who will eventually inherit my blocks.
Ford Flex AWD, Vulcan Nomad 1600
VW Mk4 R32, Chevy Z71 Colorado 4x4, Audi A6 2.7T (RS6 replica wannabe), Audi 90Q, BMW X5 4.4i, VW 20AE GTI #0651, Aprilia RSV Mille, Suzuki V-Strom DL1000
Finally got some pics up of what I still have out on display in my office.
Bought this one about 5 years ago off Bricklink when I stumbled upon it. I think I got it for like $150 new in box from Germany. The stickers got mucked up sitting at work. I sourced a new sheet of stickers that I need to put on.
Got this one about a year ago off Bricklink as well. Been wanting it for a few years now. Mainly to see if I can't understand transmissions a lil bit more. Fun build and the 5 speed with reverse is pretty neat.
Lastly, stumbled upon a thread in TCL probably a year and a half ago that showed a youtube link of this build. I was instantly sold on the idea. After some research and about $300 of lego expense on Brick Link I finally was able to source all the necessary parts, and do so in a some what consistent color scheme. Kinda went for the Ferrari theme. I have the Lego CAD of this build if anyone is interested.
I've got a ton of stuff still in my parents attic. About once a year I get a big urge to buy a new set. I've been starting to have the urge to buy the Technic Space Shuttle off Bricklink. We'll see how that transpires
love this thread!! damn i wish i had all my legos... i miss them so much and to buy new ones today are rediculously expensive!! wtf?! they are plastic bricks why are they so damn pricey?!

Ooooohhhhhh nooooooo... between this thread and helping my friend move his entire lego setup into his basement (he's 50 btw, and has an entire "colony" that takes up a whole room...) I'm going to get absolutely no work done on my jetta... the good news is I'll probably be posting some pics soon though.
Well, I have gotten back into building!
here is my latest project:
I bring to you my latest MOC for my latest project I will be building.
It is a Japanese restaurant like those you would see in Japan.
My project I will be building is a large city block of Japanese style buildings.
Here is the first of many buildings that I will build: ON WITH THE PICS!
A pic of the roof:
Close up of the detail of the roof: (yes, it is all made up of 1x1 bricks!)
The front entrance:
The Module sections all opened up:
A basic interior, the cooks are busy frying fish and cutting up fish:
Chefs busy cutting:
The LED setup: (string of ten LED lights powered by 2AA Batteries)
Hard to see, but this shows a bit of the lights inside:
