Beautiful Custom-Built 2009 Wooden Car.
This custom wooden car rides on a 1986 Toyota truck frame and gets power
from a Chrysler 318 engine. It is driven by an automatic transmission and has
merely 1,800 miles on its speedometer. The whole body is made of cedar and
its interior is just as over-the-top as the exterior.

I'm afraid I have to agree. With boat building methods, you can get beautiful curves out of wood, so there's no reason it can't have nice swooping curves.

I like it.

Except for the license plate. Doesn't NC have anything else to hang their hat on? First in Flight? Yeah, thanks to Dayton OH.

It's not an odometer, it's a dolphin.

The cannibals would like to add carrots, potatoes, and a match at 55mph for 1 hour. Preferrably drive in a small circle so dinner is easier to find.
