I've just completed a couple of these fun cars, one as a take apart and one as a coaster. I had a bit of Basswood, which made a good main body, then just used what else was to hand to finish them. Wheels are pine for the take apart and elm for the coaster.
The fenders are only 5/8 inch, rather than 3/4, as that's what I had (a bit of scrap beech).
The rather large spoiler on the coaster was added to cover up an unsightly split in the wood, which I thought I'd avoided when laying on the pattern! Unfortunately, the split went a bit further than I had thought, hence the mod!
I haven't decided whether to paint the coaster, or wax it. I suspect my grandson would like some bright colours!

Wonderful work Tony. These are real keepers and I love the craftsmanship and the excellent photos. The puzzle car is cool but the addition of the spoiler really makes a cool touch.
