Machined Spring Powered Car
If anyone can help me make this, it would be much appreciated!
I came across the object shown in the link below and shown in the attached pictures. It is the "Toy Car" by the designer "Wouter Scheublin". It is a spring powered toy car made in the limited edition of 20. It does not look very complex, but does look elegant. It can be purchased for close to $3,500.00 US on the justification that it is art, but that is not something I will ever be able to afford for this type of object. I am not insinuating that it is not worth it (last year I actually contacted the designer as well as the people selling it for him to see if I could pick one up for substantially less). In any case, please check out the link below for pictures and let me know where a good place to start making the components might be or just where to start in the design and build process period would be. I guess I would need to know the actual parts needed before I could start to assemble even something remotely similar and I figured the geniuses that use the forums here could help me (being that its December and in the spirit of giving and sharing and all) or maybe someone here might even be interested in possible making with me. Thanks in advance for your consideration and reply.

On another note, I really really love this kind of gadget. Metal (or wood), Mechanical, Simple, Elegant. I have searched everywhere and have trouble finding a site specific to these types of objects. small precision desktop machines like a well machined Stirling engine or the like. (no need to be powered. Can anyone point me to a place that has such things. Another example of something I like (and did purchase) is the super precision gyroscope from gyroscope.com.
Another example of a mechanical gadget I would love to have or like to read about is.
