A toy car with a propeller that is powered by wind. It is EXTREMELY fast with good wind.

You will need:
Duct Tape
super glue 
A set of wheels and axles
a propeller
a long box
an axle in an erector thing

Step 2: Putting It Together

Grab the duct tape and tape the axles down to the cardboard. Then slip the propeller on the erector axle thing and super glue the erector thing down. You can paint it green or put green duct tape on to make it a green machine.

    That looks like a fun little project, but I don't see a connection from the "windmill" to the wheels, is it just driven by drag?

    Perhaps you could make up some similar box cars and compare your wind mill with a Sail and maybe some other drag inducing elements, see what you can come up with.
