    I built a model of a Corvette for my mom one year.

    On the plus side, if you do get in and take a ride, she'll have to sit on your lap...

    Just completed this wooden car (from a kit of laser-cut pieces). No glue required!
    All moving parts (pistons up and down, doors open and close, gear-box with forward and reverse, steering, etc.). Made by "UGears."

    Sort of a generic model (perhaps a hybrid of several cars, though has lots of Morgan qualities).
    Drive-shaft functional and turns crank... pistons rise and fall.

    There is amazing stuff out there... clocks, locomotives, etc. Sort of 3D jigsaw puzzle (but with directions).
