It's no secret that I love off-beat, funky vehicles and the Piaggio APE (Bee in Italian) is no exception. Of course, they never have been and never will be imported to the U.S., so my dream of owning one will likely never come true. For now, I'll just have to content myself with this post over at World Famous Design Junkies, containing some fine examples of this classic go-getter. For more APE fun, you can also visit the Flickr group, Planet of the Apes.

Who is the Dude behind DudeCraft?
Paul Overton is a prolific blogger, maker, writer, and ukulele player living in Hardwick, MA with three dogs, his closest co-conspirator, and a lawn that makes his octogenarian neighbors want to call the authorities. He delights in the unusual and can often be found in his tiny studio, whipping up some sort of self-indulgent nonsense for his own amusement.

DudeCraft represents a different kind of tribe in the world of making things, intentionally blurring the lines between, art, craft, engineering, and the good old “Can Do” spirit. Makers of all stripes are welcome here and are encouraged to join the conversation, no matter what their enthusiasms. Guys who knit, girls who weld, it’s all the same on DudeCraft. We are people who make cool stuff, have an urge to share it, and don’t mind explaining how we did it, so that other folks can benefit from our experience.
