Nice looking Ford GT!  Sure would like a real one but the prices have skyrocketed 

Thanks,

John

Hi !

 That , believe it or not , is a drivers side photo of a Mega Blox car kit about 14 1/2 " long. it was marketed about 2003 . They are still around on the " Bay ". I got this one at my local Flea market for $ 15.00 .

 On the " Bay " I've seen them from $23.00 all the way up to $135.00 ! Mine was unopened and complete including the stickers for the Valve Covers and Dash .

 The only change I am going to make is replacing the flat tiles on to which the stickers go .

 The Mega Blox tiles are three piece little bars . I will replace them with LEGO tiles the full length so they look right .

I got pretty excited to see a pic from you, TB.....but it either disappeared or something is wrong with my browser.

Darn it! I'll check back though.

Wow ! Mega Block's ?   I have Heard you tell of your Lego's / Mega block project's before, But I always "envisioned" clunky blocks stacked up on each other... ( At least that's the way I remember building them in 1970 .)

Your car look's like any ordinary car, ... no "lug's" , Block's, or those short squatty people with round "Thingie's" on their head's .

Hmmmm...... I may have to "Re-think" my  prejudice of all thing's Lego ....

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

Hi Timmy !

 The MEGA BLOX line does have some nice things in it . Most are older releases though . LEGO has the Bugatti Chiron ( At least that's what I think it is ) and the Aston Martin DB 5

And yes they are a little blocky , But with imagination and the newer parts from LEGO they can be made to look pretty fine . Except for a few places their Mack " Anthem " is pretty close to the real thing

 They BOTH fall short on boats though , and don't ask about ships !
