What's funny is, hemp is actually now being used for some car parts because it's super strong, lightweight, and biodegradable.

Why not, I've driven one made by plants.

You already do. Ford, for instance, sources a lot of materials from plants. From their website:

The average Ford vehicle uses between 20 and 40 pounds of renewable materials, depending on the vehicle size class. Almost 300 parts used across Ford's vehicles are derived from sources such as soybeans, cotton, wood, flax, jute and natural rubber.

I started to make a wooden car and ended up making a canoe.

In high school I tried to come up with a Chia Car based on the idea of stealing energy from the ATP cycle. Not surprisingly even at perfect efficiency it couldn't go very fast or far. Or at all.

Cars used to have all sorts of wooden parts.

I_Am_Weasel: Why not, I've driven one made by plants.

And I've driven a Saturn, so It's not out of the question.

Why do you insist on always capitalizing "it's", autocorrect? I'm tired of correcting you.

It's been done.
