50's Tow Truck

For as long as there's been cars on the roads, there's been cars breaking down on the roads. And through those many, many years the means to rescue said broken cars has remained essentially the same, a tow truck. While there's been many types of tow trucks, of course the ones in the 50's had the most character, like this beautiful beast by redfern1950s2. It would almost be worth the repair costs just to see this baby in person doing what it was designed to do.

Coca-Cola Truck

Coca-Cola, Christmas and Santa are undeniably interwoven. Coca-Cola ads in the 1930's helped popularize the modern version of Santa, with his red coat, jolly demeanor and snow white beard. While they didn't invent this version of him, they did cement him into western culture. So seeing him on the side of this wonderful truck by builder Lasse Deleuran just says "Christmas" to me. The truck is also fully remote controlled thanks to an SBrick.

Flatbed

There's just something about vehicles from the 50's isn't there? I realize automotive designs are always in motion, and fads come and go, but there was something about the sensibilities of 50's design that seems so inviting and eye pleasing. Even something as utilitarian as this truck by redfern1950s2 feels like more than just a practical service vehicle, it's got character.

Autocar A64B

I don't know a whole lot about big trucks, but that doesn't diminish my appreciation for one that's well built. This Autocar A64B, the same truck used by Sylvester Stallone in Over The Top I understand, is detailed inside and out, right down to the fully kitted out engine compartment and stocked toolbox. Builder havoccnp took great care constructing this workhorse of the 60's and 70's, and it shows.

Kenworth Wrecker

Sometimes it's nice to visit an old friend, catch up on old times, size them up for flaws...then strip them down and go to work. Get your minds out of the gutter, I'm talking about revising an old MOC. In this case it's a truck that dates back from before BrickNerd was even a thing (henceforth known as BB, before BrickNerd). This Kenworth wrecker was originally build in 2013, but with the plethora of new parts, and a need to shave some studs and smooth some surfaces, builder legotrucks has brought her up to date. And what a beauty she is.
