The Steampunk Roadster

June 14th, 2016 by Cobwebs

Steampunk RoadsterLegendary steampunk modder Jake von Slatt has just completed his most ambitious–and, apparently, his last–makeover. He bought a 70s-era kit car on eBay and completely transformed it into a phenomenal steampunk confection. He offered it for sale and it was purchased within a day, but you can still see his process photos and drool over the vehicle in this video:

Although he’s claiming that this is his last steampunk project, it doesn’t seem to mean that he’s retiring from the steampunk community. He’s just not planning to do any more mods involving “steampunkifying” modern objects. A pity; he has a definite gift.

    What a way to end his modding career!

    (I’ll be amazed if he gives it up, though – the craft has to come out in the end.)
