A line of Econolines (and A-100’s)

In the mid-fifties Volkswagen imported their microbus into the US and Americans were immediately smitten. The forward-cab shape offered practicality, utilitarianism, and unbridled fun in one fell swoop, and Ford, Dodge, and GMC quickly took notice. Clearly, this phenomenon has not been lost on LEGO builder Chris Vesque as he presents a series of five 60’s era Ford Econolines (teardrop headlights) and Dodge A-100’s (round headlights).

I’ll fix your (Little Red) Wagon

LEGO car builder Tim Henderson tells us that awhile ago he had built a version of the Little Red Wagon. It must have been met with very little fanfare because our archives don’t even reveal a blip. But now he has reworked the old build using newer parts and techniques and not only is this iconic 1964 Dodge A100 wheelie-stander on our radars but you’re digging it now too. That’s the power of The Brothers Brick. We find cool stuff. We share it with you. You get excited. Shampoo, rinse, repeat. After rinsing off there you might want to check out a few other vehicles we went totally gaga for.
