The Ultimate Wine Cork Craft: A Cork Covered Car

The Ultimate Wine Cork Craft: A Cork Covered Car

Yesterday, Sweetie Pie and I were strolling through a classic car show when we spotted a 1957 BMW Isetta covered in wine corks, which just might be the ultimate wine cork craft. Why would someone do this to a car? Maybe because the car looked like  this before: 

And here's what it looks like now:

Besides having only 3 wheels, this car only has one door. And it's on the front.

From the rear:

 The little car attracted a lot of attention, deservedly so. The owner's name is Duane Saunders and he spent nearly a year gluing more than 1,900 corks--which he cut in HALF--to his micro-car. Duane's love of BMW Isetta's began when he bought one overseas as a soldier in the early sixties. It cost him $200 bucks and only $50 to have it shipped to the U.S.

From the side:

Each of the corks were coped for a perfect fit. It was pretty amazing. Just think, no worries about dings, and, who knows, it might even float!

Of course the original emblems are still on display.
