This isn’t a scene from “Walking Dead”, it is actually one of the biggest car graveyard in the world which is right in the middle of a small forest near Chatillon. It was said, these cars once belonged to US soldiers who were stationed in this region. When the World War II ended, all military troops were sent back to the US, but the cost of having all those cars shipped was way too expensive. So the ranking officers decided to leave all the cars in Belgium. The cars were driven up a hill, one by one, nicely parked and somehow hidden from the outside world. At one time, there were were four car graveyards in Chatillon with as many as 500 retro vehicles. However, due to many reasons, the whole graveyards was cleared in 2010.
The Formula 1 for this year is to begin this Saturday…As a loyal F1 fan, I made this post of 10 creative Formula 1 Car Replica/Recreation. You can see some impressive recreation of Formula 1 Car, for example, the one made by 956,000 Matchsticks, 22 types of bread or 4,405lbs chocolate. The Styrofoam looks with great details and the ice sculpture is also pretty “cool” (in both way.) However, my favorite one is Lego Car(sorry, I can’t control my fond of Lego…).

In this blog, I will present you some really cool concepts design of transport, cars, vans, bikes. The concept of ford car is unveiled actually 10 years ago. When the car was unveiled, consumers weren’t ready for this concept, it was almost universally despised. But back to now, I’m sure you will like it.
So, let’s check those innovative concepts. And here is my world: “there is no limitation to imagination“.
1. BMW Blue Dynamics Concept [link]
BMW Blue Dynamics Land Yacht by designer Stefan Radev, the concept is a wind powered vehicle. It consists of three wheels and a sail. The name “Blue Dynamics” combines a symbolic connection of the wind(air) and BMW “efficient dynamics”, “active hybrid” greener emission programs. The concept has a rigid sail to harness the energy of the wind, and the driver can adjust the sail from the cockpit. Entry to the cockpit is through the concept’s elevating windscreen.
Today’s two blogs are both about car, one is editable racing car and now, is about the poor trapped car. My friend sent my those photos by email said it was something happened in China. I checked the photos thoroughly which don’t look like photoshopped to me. However it is hard to believe it was real and feel so sorry for the car’s owner. How can he/she drive the car down? That is seriously wrong parking position.
