Well first off, yes, there really is a log car & it is unique, to say the least.
The car, constructed from a single red cedar tree trunk, was a challenge presented to log home builder Brian Reid Sr.
Brian, you many know, is the star of HGTV’s “Timberkings” and tough challenges a just a way of life for him.
A mechanic friend and a turbine manufacturing friend all got together and said “let’s make this car..and make it electric.”
They took the completed unit to an NHRA drag strip down south, along with a Guinness Book of World Records guy, and laid down two blistering runs of around 50 kph…and since there are no other electric log cars…it’s now the record holder.
Brian tours the car around Canada & the States raising money for military veterans.
It’s been checked out by the Barrett-Jackson car auction people and Brian reports it has a reserve bid in the seven figures. He may sell it at some point, with the money going to those veteran’s groups.
