Instead of tinkering around the house during his retirement like most, Momir Bojic decided to make his dream car—the astonishing wooden car design was a labor of love that took the 71-year old Bosnian two years to put together. However, unlike most DIY cars, the VW isn't made from scrap metal and uses over 50,000 pieces of wooden oak that are assembled like miniature rounded shingles that gives the car an interesting texture. From a distance, the car has a brownish coloring and you'd probably not even know that this car has a wooden exterior.

As illustrated in pictures, the vehicle is fully drivable and the retiree, his car, as well as his matching wooden hat get plenty of attention on the roads.
