A 63-year-old man succeeded in creating a car that is made of wood. Cars built since 2002, is named 'Splinter' could operate Like a conventional vehicle. As reported by Barcroft Cars on Thursday, October 1st, 2015, this car was first made by Isaac Cohen in the age of 50. "I spent 13 to 14 hours a day to make Splinter. But everything comes from my heart," he said.

The car that has been given the green light to be able to roam on the highway (aka road-legal vehicle) was created from the wood cubes glued, and shaped in such a way according to Cohen's imagination. Everything is done in his workshop in Houston, Texas.
