Vehicles for Modular scenes?

Apart from FB, none of the Modular buildings come with a vehicle.

Which vehicles do you use in your street scenes?

    I use normal city ones, I prefer them to the classic ones Lego do in certain sets

    Check out Ebay by just typing in some of the modulars names/numbers. There are a lot of user created vehicles up for sale that are very cool.

    IMO The best vehicles for the modulars that look good with the fire-engine from FB are in some of the Indiana Jones sets!

    7622 Truck only.
    7682
    7683 Tank truck only

    you can grab the instructions through the links

    Yeah, the trucks from 7622 and 7683 are nice. Some of my favorite 'vintage era' vehicles came from the old Adventurers sets, including 2995 and 5909

    I don't have the set numbers handy, but my modular city includes:
    Smart Car
    Red Convertible (from a speed trap set?)
    Yellow Convertible (from another set -- don't remember which one)
    1950s sedan (from the Town Plan set)
    Recycling and Trash Trucks (LEGO regularly releases these)
    Police cars (I have a couple from various small sets)

    the new palace cinema is going to come with a car.

    the trucks that come with winter village post office and cottage are old fashioned and would go well with modular sets.

    I like to fill the street with bicycles! I've used the repair truck #3179 and the bus from city corner #7641. I guess outside of bikes I like to add vehicles that can have add the dimension of height to a scene.

    I like the winter village themed vehicles; they are good to fall in line with the FB truck, other than that I have bicycles and people walking. You know, like a good old proper Danish street. :)

    modulars look great with 8404 tram going down the road

    I don't like the idea that my modular buildings are from the past. Generally, they could fit equally well in a vintage scene as a modern day scene. Of course, that's not true for the fire engine and crew in FB. So I took #7239 and modified the main truck so it fit in FB. I also swapped in modern fire fighting uniforms. The street vehicles therefore are just a collection of modern cars.

    The new PC is going to be very vintage, unfortunately. I think I'm getting rid of the whole idea of a red carpet opening and just frame it as a historic movie theater. Basically different figs and cars.

    the alternative model of #6913 is an old style sports car. also nice alternative model in #31006

    I have the garbage truck #4432 and I just bought the new fire truck #60002 to replace the old style fire truck for FB. Those two seem to go really well with my modulars at the moment.

    Couple the Hollywood Starlet from CMF9 and the Limousine from #3222 and you could easily take the Palace CInema into modern day.

    ^ The only problem is getting her in the car!
  • streekerstreeker FranceMember Posts: 299
    ^Very true. I was going to suggest having her go bottomless in the limo, but then I realized, that wasn't very PG13.

    Has everyone adopted the new style cars and trucks into their city scenes? The classic 4 wide design doesn't seem to fit with the Modulars.

    Also, in what time period are the Modulars suppose to represent?

    ^I would have preferred to have a modern fire engine with Fire Brigade.

    ^They most likely try to keep it in like a 50's kind of era, but then they screw up and put like a computer in TH. I mean, old projector in PC, Old cash registers in multiple, its even been said in the Designer Video they thought of 30's (not to far off from 50's) Hollywood when designing- but defiantly a retro type era.
