I knew from the moment that I first saw the carriage set, I just HAD to make something cool with those fancy golden wheels. What came to my mind after a few days of thinking on it was a Rolls-Royce/Dusenberg-styled roadster:

Image

A modern Princess needs a car, and one that can get her where she's going in STYLE!

Image

Image

Those Brickforge printed shields sure came in handy, didn't they? ;)

Image

(Note: I couldn't find the license plate tile I could have SWORE I had, so I decided to use one of the money tiles, since it looks kinda like some of the classic car license plates I've seen in different places)

Image

Interior view showing the instrument panel. I couldn't fit in a floor shifter, so I'm just going to say that the gearshift lever is on the steering column, like most old-school cars. ;)

Image

Another interior shot, taken from the front to show the plush, pink interior. :D

Image

Pic of Laura, my Friends sig fig & Cinderella standing beside the car. I think the color scheme worked out pretty well, especially considering how poorly things were going early on in the build process...

Image

Finally, the first annual Friends Road Rally. Our contestants this year are Laura & Cinderella in the Royal Roadster, Jane & Stephanie in Stephanie's Cool Convertible and finally, Olivia in her glorified ATV, er, I mean Dune Buggy. :D

Hope you guys like the build.

That's awesome, kinda reminds me of that one scene from Shrek 2 (not that I like Shrek, my older brother did and when I was about 6 and he was 7 he had that thing in the VCR all day e'rry day). Those golden wheels also look kind of elvish, would look good as a chandelier.

Thanks! BTW, if anyone is wondering, yes this IS part of my larger LEGO setting: Cinderella is a Senator in the Federal Republic of America Congress, and her husband General (formerly known as Prince ;)) Charming is in the Federal Marine Corps and in charge of the CSA front of the war effort.

Senator Cinderella tends to strongly support social justice, child welfare & equal-opportunity laws, for some reason. ;) This is supposed to be her personal car that she also uses on official government business.
