While owning classic cars can be unattainable for most, Michel Robillard is making his dream of driving a vintage vehicle come true by building his own... albeit out of wood.

The retired French carpenter is putting his woodworking skills to use by creating his own version of the iconic Citroen 2CV.

Attention to detail

Robillard constructed the model piece by piece using the dimensions and platform of an actual 2CV, taking his time as he got to work on the full-sized wooden creation.

It also boasts the 11kW engine that fits snug and was one of the easier tasks to do according to Michel. The attention to detail is there for you to see.

Michel also owns plenty of wooden 1:10 scale models which is kept in a museum that he opens to visitors.
