In preparation for work on his steam-powered car, MAKE pal Jake von Slatt went Medieval on a 29′ Cobra Sierra mobile home and turned it into a 21′ (chop, chop) car carrier. And just in time, too. On the day he finished the project, he found (and bought) on eBay a replica of a 1929 Mercedes Gazelle built on a Volkswagen Beetle chassis. This car will make a very lovely steamer, indeed.

    Mr. Herr Von Slatt’s video is a hoot. His description and handling of his power drill ( “Do ya feel lucky?”), is precious!
    Thanks, Jake
