I came across this great image through Ghostbusters.net's Facebook page. It's a mashup of 80's movies created by Deviant Art member: mestre-du-temple
. I like how he included the Delorean Time Machine with Ferris Bueller and his friends riding in it. You can also see Marty Mcfly hanging from the door-frame on a hover board. Then there's Lisa from Weird Science holding Gizmo. That's just a few of the references. Can you spot them all?

"Now, I owe it to myself to tell you that if you're taking the whole tribe cross-country, the Wagon Queen Family Truckster..." Ah the Family Truckster. The official vehicle of the Griswold Family Vacation. "Believe me if you hate it now... Wait till you drive it." Just a ton of great lines in that film. I stumped across this entry on one of my favorite LEGO blogs
and knew it was On Screen Cars material. Flickr user -derjoe-
did a great job of not only capturing the family, but the ride as well. Obviously this scene is after Aunt Edna passed away. Note that she's on top. Many extras on the car. Not to mention the quad headlights, the roof rack and the brown brick representing the simulated woodgrain panels. It's all 80's here folks. Besure to check out some of their other creations on Flickr
. Who's the Moosiest Moose We Know?... ah here I go again. See ya folks.

Guys we're back. Been a while since we've last posted. Life got really busy with moving and stuff. But now it's fall. Retreating indoors to begin enjoying some of our winter hobbies. Got a few things already lined up and planned. But to start us off. I was browsing around some of the art work posted on deviantart.com
and came across the image below
. I thought this would be a perfect addition to our Fan Created Art section.
I just love how this artist really captured all of the popular great On Screen Cars of the day. You've got the Delorean from the second BTTF film hovering above. Next is the Dukes of Hazzard General Lee in mid-air (awesome!). Down below you've got Optimus Prime leading the pack slightly. Let's not forget KITT and Ecto 1. Gotta love this cartoon style artwork. Looks totally like something off of 80's Saturday mornings. Hint the name "80's Highway." He's to you Egocenter

You remember our post on the Custom Ford Model T Munster Koach
a while back. Ah yes that fine George Barris created automobile built for the head of the Munster family. Well this morning I stumbled
upon a LEGO creation of the not only the Munster Koach but Grandpa's dragster, Dragula. Flickr member Orion Pax
is well known for his LEGO creations of 80's pop culture (Transformers, M.A.S.K., Ghostbusters, Back to the Future etc.) He's recreated many On Screen Cars as well. But it looks like he's given us a real treat from the 60's this time. Check out the whole scene with the house below.

Just in from Masashi Togami and TEAM BTTF: We've received the following email from LEGO congratulating us on 5,000 supporters!
"Dear m.togami, Congratulations on passing this milestone of 5,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO for the Back to the Future DeLorean Time Machine! You're halfway there! Over the coming weeks, veteran designer Steen Sig Andersen, the same designer who built the final Shinkai 6500 and LEGO Minecraft Micro World models, will investigate your DeLorean model and build our own concept. We will post the results here with our comments once that is complete. Best wishes as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. The LEGO CUUSOO Team"
On Screen Cars fans we're getting close to reaching the goal of gaining an offical BTTF LEGO set. Not to mention the ultimate goal of helping the The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. The group wishes to denote part of the proceeds from each set to the foundation. If you haven't voted your support for the set please do so at the LEGO: CUUSOO
site. It just takes a few minutes of your time and doesn't cost a thing.
