Lego Mk1 Golf

Post

Back to the top
Hi all,
It's been a while since I have been active on here but I needed to share this.
I'm sorry if there is already a thread about this but I couldn't find one.
I have found a Lego Mk1 golf on the Lego ideas website https://ideas.lego.com/projects/155745 and I had to support the idea. If it gets 10000 supporters then it goes to the big bosses of Lego to get approval and then if it is approved it will go in to production.
Let's all go to the above site and  support this project because I would love one of these.

I've just voted for it and now they only need 301 more votes to take it into production.  :thumbs:

Mind you there's an uncanny likeness to one of these.

The polish made Polonez from the late 70's, 80's.
Brings back real nightmares of being a car salesman back then. If someone drove in with one of these you'd see the showroom empty of staff like it was on fire!

If you took one of these in p/x you basically owned it for years, couldn't give them away.
I should know because I did, a bottle green one, I still brake out into cold sweats just thinking about it decades later.  :'(

Anyhow do go the the Lego link above and vote yes, we can then see who can build the funniest looking MK1.

Oh see if you can spot my comment as well.  :ninja:  :thumbs:

I have for years this old B&W photo of a Cabby being finished off on the production line here. But thanks to photobucket and there ransom demands I've had to search for hours and hours to reconstruct this which should have been a 2 minute job!

SCREW YOU PHOTOBUCKET and remember, hell ain't half full yet!

As you can see the USSR liked to make their own copy version of Western Europe's products…ironically it would be as rare as "rocking horse poo" today and worth a small fortune  :'(   You should have kept it…and not hated it so much… :sinner: lol  :lol:

That is one beast of a car Golf Cabrio
 
You will all be pleased to know that the Golf hit 10000 supporters, it now needs to be approved before going to be manufactured.

I don't know if you like any other classics but there is also a Series III Land Rover on there

I think the golf is OK, though could probably be improved with a bit of redesign. it also needs to be red!

The landrover is spot on though. really like that.

Thanks for this and it really does look like one of the ones Lego made up, if not darn close from memory. 👍🏼

But not at that price! 😉

Price is very stupid haha, but suppose if it‚€™s the only one that‚€™s knocking about it could be worth tracking down

Yes but you'd have to be a fanatical collector at that price or bonkers! 😂

The guy who sent the plans into Lego is now trying to sell the Lego plans on eBay now. If you search for eBay number - 282634669541.  I've got himi down to $20 which he saying is as low as he will go.  I'm not too sure how much it would cost you outright to build it tho.  Would be interested to know if anyone else has brought this.
