Six years ago, UK resident Buzz Knapp-Fisher set out to make the most eco-friendly vehicle he possibly could. Unfortunately, as a wise frog once said, it isn’t easy being green, especially for this poor car. The Womble Truck might not be the prettiest thing to look at (in fact it might be one of the ugliest), what it lacks in style it makes up for in planet-saving potential.
Built using the parts from 21 recycled vehicles, including a Sixties Morris 1000, Seventies Mini, a Ford, a Reliant Robin, an MG Midget, a Vauxhall Viva and a Volvo 740, the Womble is powered with only vegetable oil and chip fat. Even though it only drinks food byproducts, it has the capacity to reach 110 mph. And at that speed, you might be almost capable of mistaking the Womble for a car you’d be willing to be seen driving.
