Wooden car with split modern/vintage personality

Here's a maker with a dream: a he-she car made of wooden parts, divided down its long axis, with a modern body down one side and a vintage body down the other, the whole thing gleaming under multiple coats of laquer and rumbling with all the power of a 1981 Opel.

A Ukrainian man gave up his job, sold his two other vehicles and spent one and a half years in his garage to create his dream vehicle. His literally half-modern, half-retro car has a wooden body made of thousands of oak parts.

Vasily Lazarenko says the most difficult thing was to preserve the balance between the modern and vintage halves of his design, so that they didn’t clash with each other.

Under the wooden bonnet there’s a 1981 Opel with a 100-horse-power engine.
