The avid VW Beetle fan created the wooden car from over 50,000 separate pieces of oak, including thousands of small oak tiles that cover the car like scales. Owner Momir Bojic says he made all of the custom wood fittings in his personal workshop.

Mr. Bojic says the wooden beetle draws a crowd anywhere it goes.
