A wood-fired El Camino

I'm thinking this car's too top-heavy to corner very well - but it's a tour de force nonetheless.

The Finnish-built, wood-burning El Camino

Truth is stranger than fiction, or so the saying goes. And I could not make this story up if I tried. A Finnish politician has converted his American-built El Camino to run on woodgas. How's that for awesome?

Juhas Sipilä's 1987 El Camino, affectionately dubbed "El Kamina" (The Stove), features a very steampunk-like woodgas generator taking up about half of the truckbed
