Originally this started out as Lego Set #6511 Rescue Runabout, but we already have SO MANY fire vehicles in town-- the budget for the Bricksburgh Fire Department is, apparently, quite ridiculous-- that we decided to make the truck into a civilian version.
The overall look of the original set was vaguely Jeepish, but as we tinkered with it, it began to look more an more like an old school Land Rover Defender. You might remember seeing those on African safari videos or animal documentaries. Some people might see a little Ford Bronco or International Scout in the simple lines of the truck too. We didn't do very much, but it does go to show you that a few well placed pieces can really change the character of what was, frankly, a pretty boring set to begin with.
