The second installment in my Crash series is here! These are not done by ramming the vehicles into each other but rather arranging them and their parts to make them look like a real world wreck. This doesn’t really need I whole lot of explaining but if you like car crashes, check them out!
About this creation
This time it was just two different LEGO cars, both Retro Motors vehicles, but they are still very nice. It has been suggested that I put Figs in my cars to make the crashes more realistic, I will try to do this when I remember.
An El Camino ran a red light and smashed straight into the side of my Retro Wagon. It faired pretty good considering the speed of the impact.
The Retro Wagon lost traction on some ice and slid into a pole. Traction control only works so well.
Some one came into the parking garage a little too fast in his Retro El Camino.
After being towed away from the pillar:
A head-on collision into a stationary object. Oh come on, you better know which of my cars has the racing stripe by now!
An off set head-on with two Retro motors cars, LEGO Town Fire and Rescue is on the scene! Man, I hope all these crashes don’t hurt my company’s sales! Good thing we have such a good repair facility.
You lucky ducks! I put 6 in this collection by mistake (all those crashes must have hurt my brain). Well here is a frontal impact of my, or I guess, Grove Champion’s Picard Piranha. This was meant to replicate the games visual for max frontal damage. If you don’t know what game I am talking about go look up “Interstate 76” and prepare for one of the best games ever! Mad Max meats Death Race – BAM!
Remember, car crashes can be very dangerous; wearing a seat belt can greatly reduce risk.
This page commemorates the first full day of having my driver’s license!
I still have one more group of crash pictures to upload, but I am open for suggestions on what cars to crash, and how to crash them. So if you have an idea, let me know, thanks! ;)

Great job! I'm hoping to make one of these, but with one car. Do you have any suggestions?
Been inactive for a few months so I am sorry I didn't get back any sooner. As for advice on making good crashes, it depends how solid your car is. Mine are pretty hollow, with lots of things held on by only one or two studs, this makes it pretty easy to stage crashes. In general though you want to try and arrange them so that they look "folded." When a car crashes, it gets shorter, so those parts have to go somewhere. In most of my crashes the front bumper goes underneath, the hood flips up, and the fenders bend outward toward the sides. Pulling the wheels off and leaning them against the side of the car at an angle looks really good too. Like I said though, it depends on how you've built your car, if it is a solid block with wheels, you are much more limited in what you can do.

More and other cars:D then i can give 5/5 now i gove only 4/5
I only have 6 cars and I firetruck right now, but I will see what I can do. My next one is already laid out to upload, it had 3 cars, and a plane. But the one after that isn't even started, so I will see if maybe I can get a pile up or something. Maybe a train hit!

cool, you need some roll overs, and maybee someone going off a bridge, more dramatic stuff anyway
The bridge would be kinda hard since I don't have one, and probably kind of boring too, there would be nothing left! But I will see what I can do about roll overs, I have a lot of clear elements that I can add in as broken glass. Thanks for the suggestions!

Ah... the driver's license. After how many days of listening to the DMV say "car's are deadly" its nice to hit the open road without someone telling you what to do. BTW nice scenes.
I don't know, I kind of like having my dad in the car to tell me if I'm doing something wrong. But the DMV is annoying though, I'll give you that. Thanks for the comment!
