Car of the Week: Can Car



Hey Guys

Photobucket

Already a few months ago I've bought this model car at a Fair Trade Shop.
They had some models - from famous Cars like the Beetle (like the one I have) up to motorbikes like Vespa's and more.
I've chosen the Beetle model cause I like blue and the classic Beetle :)

The whole Car is made out of (old) cans. You're still able to read some prints.
My model was produced in Mauritius and the people get well paid for it. And it's great what they produce (have you seen the little steering-wheel? Awesome detail!!)


So, if you see some similar ones around, and they are really "Fair Trade", buy them - cause they are a real masterpiece of art!!

  1. That's super neat that cans have been recycled in such a fun way. Don't know a lot about cars, but these are really nifty.

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
