Most retirees may be content to kick back on a cruise or relax at home, but not Bosnian pensioner Momir Bojic. The 73-year-old car enthusiast spent two years putting together his dream car: a gorgeous Volkswagen Beetle covered with over 50,000 handcrafted oak shingles. The car can be driven on the road without a hitch and, unsurprisingly, draws crowds wherever it goes.
Bojic, a resident of Celinac near Banja Luka, Bosnia, describes his timber car as a “labor of love.” He started with the bodywork of a regular Beetle and then covered it with timber tiling and custom wooden fittings, from a steering wheel to hubcaps, all of which were handmade in his garden workshop.
All parts of the bespoke cruiser are fully functional. To top it all off, Bojic wears a custom hat covered with wooden shingles to match his beautiful car.
