this project was an assignment for school. i am currently enrolled in my first year in the  Industrial Design Bachelor of Applied Technology at Humber College in Toronto. the assignment was to make a wood toy with at least two different moving Mechanical parts.

In this instructable i will show my process of making this toy.

Step 1: Sketch Model

The first thing i was required to do was to make a quick sketch model in order to prove that my concept worked
I have fixed the issue with the video. <br>should be up and working now
<p>mechanical toy car</p><p>I changed the design when I made mine </p>
As soon as I saw the first pic I KNEW you were in first year of Industrial Design at Humber. <br> <br>I still have the one I built in first year and I'm amazed to say that all these years later it stil works.
oh cool, great to hear, where are you at now?
<p>Sorry for not responding earlier.</p><p>I'm a bit all over the place. I worked for one company for 3 years which I really enjoyed, but I quasi-transitioned into a new industry. I still keep busy with designing things and I have a few projects on the go. </p>
How do I get the instructions for this?
<p>you read the instructable</p>
Cool <br>
why thank you
Not child safe, but you can come up with something that is!! <br> <br>Like the asthetics. The icorporation of artistic concepts. <br> <br>Got my vote <br> <br>Oh, and the video did finally download. Right in the middle of my comment writing.
its more of a decoration than an actual toy for a child <br> thanks for the vote means a lot
Cool and Interesting! :D
I love the look and the simplicity, but given that young children have a habit of falling over easily, I'd be a bit worried about the 'lever' in the up-position... <br> <br>Very nice, well explained Instructable and nicely executed - well done.
thank you <br>haha i naver thought of that, wouldn't want any kids impaling themselves on it.
I have never in several years seen such a well designed project. Great Going!
Wow. thank you.
No video yet... only a picture of a &quot;ghost hand&quot;? Very elegant project. It deserves a video.
im not sure why other people aren't seeing the video. on the 8th step there is a link at the bottom that says VIDEO0109-0.mp4 ive tried on different computer and devices and browsers and it works.
That is a really cool car! I would like to see you elaborate on how you cut out the pieces and such. I also second the embedded video movement. Even if you don't have time for that I still really like the car and would like to build my own!
I know the point but didn't it technically have 2 moving parts with 2 solid axles? Mount each wheel independent and there's 4 moving parts.
There is the fin at the back that moves with the crank, and the two pieces that go up and down on the cams.
Wow! What a great job, and how clever you are.
Why thank you
cool but no video still
No. It's there.<br>In the eighth step
Your car looks great! I wasn't able to see your video, if you need help embedding your video you can follow the instructions here: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-embed-a-video-on-Instructables/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-embed-a-video-on-Instructables/</a>
thanks for the help i got a working video up now
That is very pretty. <br> <br><sub>(You could upload the video to YouTube or Vimeo, then embed it here.)</sub>
im very proud of it <br>thank you
Beautiful car.
thank you
thank you
Nice work and it looks really cool too. As a retired shop teacher I applaud your designing and fabricating abilities.
thank you very much, I've had quiet a bit of experience
Looks like the Batmobile! Sweet!
reminded me of the mormon meteor iii
