The second Lego car I ordered arrived the other day. It’s the fifth and most recent set they released (Lego set 8448), and while it may not be quite as advanced technically as the other car I got, it was still a lot of fun to build. It’s rear-wheel drive with front-wheel steering, and it has a five speed transmission plus reverse. It also has a convertible top that raises and lowers. Since this set is newest of the Lego cars, it’s main feature is the more streamlined look that’s quite a bit less “Lego-ey” than the previous cars. Charis was again fascinated by Dad’s toy (“you made a red car dad! it is cool!”).
