To that end, a user named Brickdater on the website Lego Ideas is hoping to put this 1969 Corvette into production. According to the project description, "Ever since I can remember I've always wanted a '69 Vette. So I built one." The creator definitely gets the C3 'Vette's curvaceous form down, despite having to render them in angular plastic blocks. Brickdater has even managed to achieve a two-tone look with a white stripe running over the hood, roof and trunk. As it sits now, the Corvette is made up of 1,500 parts – about 420 more than the Mini Cooper – and the design features removable T-tops and a really well-detailed engine bay, complete with a carb and hoses.
Lego Ideas is a way for the company to get new product ideas directly from its fans. If a project receives 10,000 supporters, the Lego Review Board evaluates it. Then if it gives the design the thumbs up (which isn't a guarantee), the kit gets put into production. Lego even shares a percentage of each sale with the creator.
With about 2,400 supporters as of this writing and nearly a year to reach the goal, Brickdater's Vette is doing pretty well so far, but obviously it could use a nudge if you're so inclined. You can add your further encouragement over at Lego Ideas.
