Sadly his last blog entry is about a year old. It seems the project has
fallen off the map. Too bad because the concept and execution looked
awesome. I love wood boats and will be building one soon (a small
daysailor) and saw this car in one of my Dad's woodworking magazines.
The engineering is amazing and it proves what a viable material wood is.
To get back on topic (for the PDML anyway) ever see the bamboo bicycles?
