I loved my Technic! I think I gave it away to a friend who had young kids.

There were two things I always made with Lego: cranes and cars.
Dunno why cranes but I just liked building huge cranes that could lift fairly heavy objects and not topple over.
As for the cars, my mate and I would build our own car and I'd re-inforce the front of mine (or build a bull bar) using proper nuts and bolts. Needless to say when it came time for "smash up derby" I would win!

Ah, the good old days. That and writing programs to make naughty pictures appear on demo computers at the shops...

Too old for Lego (after my time) I had to make do with alphabet blocks and mechano ( and I had to borrow the latter from my rich neighbour). Still being on a farm as kid I got to drive tractors and play with real machines (the milking machine and cream seperator were no fun though).

Lego wasn't even invented when I was a kid. Had a great mechano set and like you 3Toed I built cranes and cars/trucks. The bigger the better! :s2:

Yep - had a huge Lego Electric train set. It went well until I started to try jump it off my bed onto another track. And, I made this huge car trailer for the poor engine (had some 78 matchbox cars in it). Finally cooked the engine!

Actually, that would mean that I can say that I cooked my first engine at the age of 12 - ahhh the nostalgia! :-)

As a child;
Mechano - yep!
Farm - yep!
Tractor - yep!
other neat farm stuff - yep!
Milking machine & cream seperator - too much like work - avoided.

I'm having a great time now with my son - we make the meanest lego cars/trucks out.
Bionicles are pretty cool too.
My son could assemble 7y/o+ kits without the instructions when he was 4.
Must get it from me.:s6:

But now he wants to play with my fully detailed & powered Lego Top Fueller - No....

Mechano and Lego were the coolest! I've still got the lego lying around somewhere, but I'm not sure what happened to the Mechano. Ahh to be 18 again... Erm, I mean 8.

I've got masses of Lego - I think it's in a large storage bin in the roof at my parents place somewhere. The space stuff was definitely my fave.

Had Lego? I built the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars! The old man sold it all on me at a garage sale when I was 15. I could've shot the bastard. Now my little cousins know whenever I'm over 'cause I'm always digging into their lego sets!
