This is a very simple cool little car made primarily of popsicle sticks.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Sorry I dont have any Pictures of this.

many popsicle sticks
2 small DC motors, not geared ,must be high rpm
1 AA or AAA battery holder
1 AA or AAA battery
2 about 5 inch pieces of wire ( longer is better speaking from experience)
1 hot wheels car
something to hold the roof up. I used a small piece of PVC pipe. You could use whatever you have handy
1 or 2 sticks of hot glue depending on how good you are with a hot glue gun
*optional* a switch and an extra piece of wire

hot glue gun
sheet metal snips
wire striper
Next version coming. It will probably have led lights, contact sensors and real wheels. thanks for the ideas. any others would be appreciated. once again thanks for all the help. Instrucables rules!!
Hey, this is really cool. You are getting my vote. I think we all tend to over engineer projects. The simplicity of this one is refreshing. I love your use of popsicle sticks. I will be looking for the future versions you mentioned.
Nice and easy for the little ones. Add LED's to it so you would have head lights. Although you have no regulated power supply to cut down on the current those motors are going to drain your batteries fast so use re-chargeables!
SPDT switches can be add to make it a robot
I am getting to that
If you add traction to the motor axles - may sleeves of heat-shrink, or small wheels of hot-glue, and switch the wiring so that the buggy runs blunt-end first, you can do without the toy car and let the pointed end drag behind. It's a nice toy, though - a wooden robot.
heh: wooden robot "treebot"
ideas for the second edition
