More Weird Cars : Wooden Car - Split VW - Subaru :: Pimped Out UPS Delivery Van

Everybody has a dream. It’s just that, well, some dreams are much stranger than other dreams.
A Ukrainian man recently made huge sacrifices for his ultimate dream by selling his car, giving up his job, and dedicating two years of his life (and an unspecified amount of money) to making an unusual wooden replacement car. The new creation is made up of thousands of pieces of oak.
Vasily Lazarenko said: “The most difficult thing was to preserve the balance between the modern and vintage halves of this design, so that they did not clash with each other.”
The car was put together using bolts and glue and then finished with a wooden lacquer. It has a wooden bonnet under which is a 1981 Opel 100-horse-power engine.

Wooden Car

According to its designer the wooden car could possibly come up for sale, but only if Vasily wants to use them money to pay for another project.
From Eastern Europe back across to America the world is full of weird cars, not all of them wooden.
One unusual design was a split car which from the front looks like a Subaru, but from the back looks like a VW. The car has two gear sticks and two engines meaning that it could certainly be described as having a split personality. That is why the creator of this car decided to call it the ‘Volksaru’.

A Very Weird Looking VW  Car

Another real gem is the pimped out UPS van straight from hell, complete with dangerous fire stripes down the side of it. Just imagine you are sitting there minding your own business, having forgotten about that package you ordered last week, when this bad boy turns up at your doorstep! I hope the UPS delivery guy has a suitably eye catching outfit to go with his cool looking car.

Wow, I like the wooden one! I wonder if it's dangerous to have it run, though. Wouldn't the heat from the engine transfer to the wood and make it burn? Anyway, it's a neat-looking collection piece for sure. The UPS truck is certainly eye-catching!
