The car we all dreamed of
Lego Hot Rod
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!
