Created by Jon Furman, the In-N-Out Lego recreation is a wonder of detail and engineering. The entirety of Furman's In-N-Out Lego creation is made from regular Lego pieces with the exception of the vinyl In-N-Out stickers used to create the signs.
Aimed to reflect an In-N-Out franchise of the 1990s, Furman scoured California locations closest to his home in Portland, Oregon and used them as a point of reference.
The project took Furman three years to track down the exact parts he desired and to put the model together.
This fan-created marvel is an example of nostalgia-spurred creativity in the consumer and shows the enthusiasm of Lego and In-N-Out fans that could harnessed in other ways.
