The Kid Should See This

Kathryn DiMaria rebuilds her Pontiac Fiero

Kathryn DiMaria started rebuilding a Pontiac Fiero with her own money when she was 12 years old. At 14 years old (in 2012), she could be found all over the net — Makezine, Autoblog, CNN, and more — for her goal of finishing the car by her 16th birthday. DiMaria’s November 2013 status: her dad recently shared photos of her hard work here.

There are more car videos in the archives, including how the differential gear works, Google’s driverless car, the story of NASCAR engineer Richie Parker, a Tesla factory tour, and the world land speed record for lightweight electric vehicles.
