Type C...

I’m not a car guy. I never have been. I don’t go ga-ga for most sports cars. I don’t drool when a car gets a redesign. I just want something reliable, comfortable, and inexpensive. 

Okay, that’s not entirely true. I did like when they redesigned Hyundai Sonatas in 2011 and that’s why I got one, although I now consider myself “over” them. I also flipped for the redesign of Dodge Rams in 1993 and have always loved 1964 Ford Cobras. Those are the few exceptions to the rule. 

Okay, one more... I love LEGO cars. I could care less about real cars, but render them in plastic bricks and I go bonkers. 

I’ve already got a couple of those sweet LEGO Speed Champions and wouldn’t mind a few more. 

However, I’ll hold off on those if I could ensure that this bad boy is gonna get made. 

It’s a fan-made Auto Union Type C Racecar and it is absolutely gorgeous!

The only problem is that, as I said, it’s fan made. It’s not an official LEGO set... yet. It is currently vying for contention on LEGO Ideas.

If it gets 10,000 votes, it will be considered for a new set. It currently sits at 5,258 as of the time I wrote this.

Any chance you can sign up for a free account and vote? I’d love to see this set happen. And you might even find something else there worthy of your vote. What can it hurt?

Okay, so I may have missed updating this for week 3... and week 4, for that matter. But let’s be honest, there wasn’t all that much to update on the ol’ Social Distancing Bingo board. Odds are that I may...
