    Looks like it's from somewhere Scandinavian, but basically they've modified an El Camino to run on wood. Awesome stuff.

    I have seen it. Its in Finland. Kamina is a work for a small wood burning fireplace (like one used in a tent) - thus El Camino becomes El Kamina.

    You can use wood but its far from sensible or energy efficient. Fine for novelty but most certainly not environmental. The woodgas setups were common around the world during the oil shortages during the WW2.

    Why do you say not environmental?
