Looks Like A Normal Car, Right? Not At All, Look A Little Bit Closer.

A retired Volkswagen employee named Momir Bojic and his wife Nada spent 72 weeks building his dream car. It’s a 1975 VW Beetle made out of wood! Momir bought the old beetle at a fair and then had a company strip and remove the doors, roof and strip the chassis. The couple made a wooden bumper, wipers, wooden pedals, wheel caps, signal lamps, tail-lights, door mirrors, steering wheel, parcel shelf, dashboard, clock and even the radio.

The thousands of thumbnail-sized pieces of oak are designed to replicate the wood-tiled roofs that are common in his homeland of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The couple worked morning, noon, and night and got it finished in 18 months.

Momir gets lots of attention wherever he goes.

Each tile involved a process which involved 23 procedures, including cutting, chamfering, beveling, drilling and smoothing, before it was applied to the beetle.

Even the windshield wipers are made of oak!

He even has a hat to match!

Momir is already planning his next project, a sports car and of course, trimmed throughout with thousands of pieces of wood.
