As a kid I spent much of my time making things out of Lego, but not always buildings. It was usually cars, specifically dragsters. I would race them against my friends and we would end up with a pile of bricks we could rebuild. This was long before Lego came out with specialised parts, it was just bricks, so everything was multi-coloured and faceted, sort of pixellated plastic. So I would build a 1970s Funny Car based on a Plymouth Barracuda.
