Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

A Romanian genius has built a working, life-size LEGO car.

As a kid we all dreamed of building a LEGO car for ourselves. A life-size, working car made of everyone’s favourite building blocks. Didn’t you fantasize about how cool it would be to jump right in and drive off after the last bricks had been connected? Of course, even as kids we knew that it was impossible to build one that would actually drive.  Thank god the guys at superawesomemicroproject.com proved us wrong.

With the help of Australian Steve Sammartino taking care of marketing, twenty year-old Romanian Raul Oaida made the impossible possible: a car made almost entirely of LEGO bricks, propelled by an engine running on compressed air, made entirely of LEGO parts as well. And it drives!

Moral of the story? Kids, never stop dreaming!

I didn’t find this car. She found me

Go, see, buy - purchasing a car can be that easy. Or you go through hell, come back to end up with the same car you never wanted to have.
