I got this wooden VW art suggestion from Kelly Lyles the other day so I had to post this. I got carried away and spent a couple of hours looking for more of these wooden wonders. I am sure there are benefits to owning a wooden art car so here we go, my top seventeen reasons to drive a wooden art car.
1) Babe Magnet
3) It floats
4) It floats and its faster
Livio De Marchi from Venice, Italy created these three and two of them float, I wonder why?
7) Classy Dinner Table
The car is built from scratch from Friend Wood entitled the Tryane II, took almost 2000 hours to create. It weighs in at about 900 pounds & is capable of 100mph. This is much better than any log ride out there! I love it.It took furniture maker Friend Wood, 46 over 2 000 hours to build his three-wheel, tear-drop shaped car. Named ‘Tryane II’, it was built around a basic mould using a boat-building technique known as ‘cold moulding’. Mr Wood (yes, that’s his name) then built up layers of African mahogany. The two-seater is an adaption of the classic four-wheeled 1969 Citroen Diane and uses the chassis and 602cc engine from a Citroen 2CV. It weights 900 lbs, is 13 feet 7 inches long, 5 feet four inches wide, and four feet four inches tall. With a top speed of approximately l00 mph, it has a fuel consumption of up to 70 mpg.
8) Zamboni on wheels
This wood car was created as a promotional vehicle made by a furniture company in Japan with a max speed of 80km/h.
