Wooden bodypanels make this a funny little car.
Part Austin Maxi, good if you're a fan of them.
Two petrol tanks!
Must be a massive fire hazard.
Fear of woodworm
My wooden bodied Hustler Hellcat is a fun little machine. It looks retro and gets loads of confused but good compliments.
It's good, but is quite noisy and the wooden body must be a fire hazard, so I always make sure I've got a fire extinguisher with me just in case. Also, I don't drive too far in a single journey just to make sure there's no risk of overheating.
