His idea - centered around the fact that car have become increasingly more complicated over the years, and today's customers don't always understand that - was the starting point for this piece.<br /> <br /> The piece measures 15" x 28" x 12", and is powered by two AC gearmotors - one to run the 'engine' and one to run the mechanism.<br /> <br /> Hand-sculpted polymer clay heads, hand-carved basswood bodies, with handmade clothes.<br /> The engine and various other pieces are constructed from found objects. The vehicle, completely scratch-built from basswood, incorporates RC car hubs and hand-formed plexiglas windows.<br /> Handmade base with scratch-built mechanisms. The 4 cams and 4 levers, (incorporating precision bearings), control the movement of the 2 figures, and the 'on and off' of the engine.<br /> <br /> Approximately 2 months start to finish.<br /> <br /> Music by Belle &amp; Sebastian - "I Love My Car"<br /> <br /> <br /> See more of my work at <a href="http://www.tomhaney.com/">http://www.tomhaney.com/</a><br /> And follow me on Facebook - <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tom-Ha">https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tom-Ha</a>...<br /> <a href="https://www.instagram.com/tomhaneyart">https://www.instagram.com/tomhaneyart</a>...<br /> <br /> If this does not play in your country, see it here --- <a href="http://tinyurl.com/hw99vt4">http://tinyurl.com/hw99vt4</a>
