I was amazed to learn of a Hungarian man who's built a car made almost entirely of wood. The Telegraph reports:
Istvan Puskas is making a mark with a car created almost entirely out of wood, built it over four months in his workshop in Tiszaors, Hungary.
The fuel tank is an old beer barrel and even the suspension and gearbox are made out of wood.
The car is powered by an engine from a Polish-made Fiat 126, while the steering wheel came from an old Mercedes Benz vehicle.
"I love to work with wood. And I like to create unique things which attract interest from people," says Mr Puskas.
There's more at the link. Here's a video report showing his creation.
OK, that's pretty impressive - but if he ever has an accident, I reckon he'll be picking splinters out of his backside for weeks . . .
