The Cork Truck

The Cork Truck is just one of the cork masterpieces created by Jan Elftman, known as the Queen of Corks.

What would you do with 10,000 wine corks? Well, you could make yourself a wine cork costume or even create an original cork painting, but Jan Elftman decided to cover a truck with them. She worked in an Italian restaurant for thirteen years and she managed to collect around 10,000 corks, so don’t worry, she didn’t drink 10,000 bottles of wine.

Her Cork Truck is one of the most popular vehicles on the internet, but covering it with corks also has more practical purposes. Cork is naturally impermeable, water resistant and provides buoyancy. The only thing I would be worried about is getting pulled over by the police, under suspicion of DUI.
