Hungarian man creates wooden car
29 May 2013
Istvan Puskas is marking 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.
Mr Puskas, a 51-year old agricultural worker, was encouraged by his wife -- Iron -- to build the wooden wonder.
Long winter breaks from farm work on the flat Great Hungarian Plains also gave him plenty of time to design and create the car.
