El Camino x Wood Burning Stove

Chevy introduced the El Camino in 1959, part pickup, part coupe, and it soon became (an ironic) classic. ‘El Camino’ means ‘the path’ or ‘the walk’ in Spanish, and now Finnish designer Juhas Sipilä is “walking the walk” with his version, which he calls “El Kamina,” which literally means “The Stove.” The car is powered entirely by burning wood off of a woodgas engine.  Sipilä says the ‘El Kamina’ can travel 125 miles on 175 pounds of wood.

Watch a video demonstration on Sipilä’s site here.
