years ago while finishing another project.

carriage and then when I was finishing and I said I would like to try out to build a
car, wooden car. I wanted to do something which doesn’t exist around the world.

very good quality, it is almost impossible to find all around the world.

him a couple of days. And then he spent a month making a 1:10 scale maquette.
PETER: I was working with one of my friend
Matyus Csaba. He was the leader of the technical and the electronic work and mechanical work,

enough. So after couple of months I started to build the car, the carrossery, the body
of the car on ash wood.

hours. But also a happy time because I was crazy to work with and it was a big happiness

a 1983 Ford Taunus. The car that also provided her with her 110 horsepower V6 engine.
