Update

Sorry for the lack of updates recently; I sometimes forget that people read this blog. With Phase 1 of the Splinter project complete, I am concentrating on graduating next month and getting a job before plunging fully into Phase 2, which is getting the car running. We have been having a good time taking the prototype version of the Splinter around for sponsors, colleagues and friends to have a look at. Thanks for sticking in with us over the last couple years, and look for the Splinter at the PRI show in December in Orlando and at the AWFS in Las Vegas in July. We are also looking forward to seeing a small feature by Robert Cumberford in the January issue of Automobile Magazine.

Thanks for the update. I have been following this for a while now (at least a year and a half). I enjoyed it because you are pretty on point with updates.

I live in Vegas and will definitely come check the car out when your here but I'm not familiar with "IWFS". Could you break that out for me? Google isn't helping (unless it's a wine festival).

Joe said...

AWFS is the show in Las Vegas. Sorry about the typo; I changed it now. I hope to see you in Vegas.

I've been following this since about the time you were completing the buck. I've enjoyed the regular updates and have been inspired by the seemingly unhinderable progress as you put the structure and bodywork together. It helped me finish a woodworking project of my own! Look forward to seeing the car running in due course; just make sure that it doesn't slip too far down the priority list as real life takes over!

Thanks for the updates, I was wondering what was going on with the car. I hope one day you come up to the Toronto Auto Show. You gave me some ideas for my next boat.

Aren't you guys going to burn the car when the engine heat gets too much to handle?

Not to mention it could get termites??

Dominic said...

I saw the bit on Discovery last night. Good show ol chap

-

not that it really needs to be said, but: termites?
Last I checked they don't like to eat plastic.
mm, polyurethane, and epoxy, and polyester. Not to mention, hardwoods aren't their preferred comestible either.

I know this is a tremendous undertaking, but would it really kill someone to leave a short blurb here... even at least every couple months to update the world on the car?

I really love following this blog, I dont know too much about this industry so am learning loads.

John said...

Hey Joe or whoever now edits this blog, I came across your 3D renderings and drawings on seriouswheels.com. The concept looks quite nice. Is your school funding this project? How far has the project come along, is it complete? I like some of the 3d models and was wondering what imaging software or design software you have been using also? Love to see video of this car when it's complete and in action, even if it have a 4 banger engine in it, it will still look impressive!

Suggestion! Make this car a diesel and then use biodiesel! Would fit with the car being made out of wood and everything mostly being reusuable. ...

Your new fan,
~John

Hello from Spain, I am a regular visitor to your blog and website. I hugely respect you and your fantastic team for what you have achieved. The splinter is an amazing showpiece of fantastic manufacturing proceses for wood.

Can you please update the world on the project? I dont mean to be pushy but I am sure you are aware that you and your team have already made automotive history.

You can all be hugely proud of yourselves for the tremendous work you have done.

Kind regards

Daniel Valladolid Fuentes

Just accept it, they're never going to update us on this project, which blows my mind because of the attention it could have gotten from car magazines world wide...

ImTheMostViewed said...

Dude the world is waiting to see the engine running and the car moving!!!!!

If the car is unable because of the heat then let us! Don't leave us in limbo!

I suspect though that the engine generates way too muc heat.

Hey... I am really impressed and interested in your work. So I would like to contact you to ask some questions concerning this project.
I am also writting a Master Thesis right now and your project could support me with some input. So if you have time you could contact me: cornelius.t@gmx.de

Pat J said...

Joe Harmon. I have been following your project since 2008. If you have given this project up, the least you could do is post again and explain what went wrong... Have some integrity for shits-sake
