The classic hot rod just got the LEGO treatment.

Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida met over the Internet and teamed up to crowd-fund the construction of a 500,000 piece, driveable car.

Some non-LEGO elements were used for wheels and load bearing. The LEGO car was built in Romania and has now been shipped to a "secret location in suburban Melbourne."

As you'll see in the video below, it's not the fastest of transportation options. But a maximum speed of 20-30 km/hr is not too bad for a car running on empty air.
