We were introduced to Stanley Dyl, Director of Advancement and Planning at MTU's Mineral Museum, who answered our questions thoroughly. He seemed to understand the new concept for the project in terms of the connections between minerals and industry. He told us the car was comprised almost completely of mined minerals. Copper for the wiring, iron ore for the steel, cadmium for the paint, chromium for the bumpers. He pointed us to the Iziko South African Museum for an illustration.
