Father's Dream to Create a Dream Car Comes True

Truong Van Dao expressed his desire to build something special for his son, who had shown an interest in cars from a young age. Dao wanted to make miniatures of different cars for his son as toys, but he soon realized that the miniatures would not be able to move. That was when he decided to self-learn how to make a wooden car that could actually move like a real car.

With the help of three carpenters from his wood workshop, Dao was able to create a car with the design inspired by the Bugatti Centodieci supercar that could move forwards and backward. The toy car was made entirely of wood, from the chassis to small details such as mirrors and fake buttons. Parts like the wheel were also cleverly carved to ensure both aesthetics and operability. The outer surface was chiseled, engraved, and polished with a finishing touch, while the axle was made of metal and connected to the chain-driven electric motor. The wooden steering wheel was also connected to the front axle so the driver could drive the car as he wished. In total, it took Dao and his colleagues 45 days to complete the car for his son.
