Ideas Build a Vintage Car Contest
If building rides of the future wasn't your thing, how about a vintage car? You have a chance to see your design become an official Gift with Purchase set, so make your entry count!

"Fancy creating one of the next official LEGO Gift with Purchase sets? Once again, we’re asking for your help, as we’re looking for a vintage car that could cruise the streets of LEGO Modular Buildings, so start your creative engines!"
Six studs wide, eighteen studs long, and ten bricks high are the maximum dimensions, so every piece will count for this contest.
As is becoming the new standard for Ideas contests, after fifteen finalists are selected the winner will be decided by popular vote.
Don't miss the deadline: November 20th, 2019 at 6:00 a.m. EST. 

The grand prize winner will not only get an exclusive opportunity to have their model transformed into a new LEGO Gift with Purchase set, but will also walk away with these fun sets: LEGO Creator Expert 10264 Corner Garage, LEGO Creator Expert 10260 Downtown Diner, LEGO 40274 Mr. & Mrs. Claus (2018 BrickHeadz set), LEGO 5005254 Harry Potter Excl Minifigure Set (2018 Gift with purchase), LEGO 5005255 Jurassic World Excl Minifigure Set (2018 Gift with purchase), LEGO 40335 Space Rocket Ride (2019 Gift with purchase), LEGO 40334 Avengers Tower (2019 Gift with purchase), LEGO 40338 Christmas Tree (2019 Gift with purchase), plus a LEGO Ideas Tote Bag.
