Steampunk Project: Mini Cooper Countryman

I was just thinking today that it has been entirely too long since I've blogged. Then I saw this absolutely breathtaking photo of the Steampunk Mini Cooper Countryman on Pinterest (via Mystic Pieces) and I knew it was just the thing to get me back. The design project is from Carlex Design Europe (via Clockwerker)

I don't even know where to start here, but perhaps wiping my chin might be a good place. Just. WOW. I used to drive a Mini Cooper before we moved to the country and I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss driving ChaCha (that was her name) every single day.

The design and execution of this work is just stunning, I personally would love to see a version that incorporated some woodwork, but honestly, if I had the means I would happily buy this car as is. Seriously, it's taken me forever to write this post because I keep scrolling back up to have another look, and I can't help picturing my little steampunk family bombing around in it.
