Wheels, Wheels, And Vehicles Of All Styles…

I am unable to explain the deep fascination that the male human being  has with … wheels. Vehicles of all shapes and sizes are sought after and treasured from as soon as the toddler discovers that the item he has in his hand can move along the ground, and continues until advanced age. Himself and Little Mr. know the makes of all the cars we see on the road, even at a distance there will an excited exclamation from the back seat of: “Porsche!”, “Lambo!”, “Old Timer!” (the name given in the Netherlands to vintage cars) and the like. Discussion is entered into if they disagree about what they have seen or if the model is especially interesting. Me? All I see is: “Car”, “Car”, and “another Car”. If you remove the MiniFig models on display and then look at the exhibits in the 2016 LegoWorld  exhibition, a large majority of them are vehicles of one sort or another from massive to small. Cars dominate of course, then there are trucks, fire engines, trains, boats, helicopters etc. Naturally, having these in the exhibition also gives the organisers and builders the chance to automate them, the train went around it’s track at a speed that paid true homage to the fastest trains of Japan and Europe. Even though I don’t have a particular interest in cars, the detail on these vehicles was impressive. Special Kudos to the shipbuilders too… THAT model had everyone in awe.
