These "can cars" have been stated to be by a man called Albert [Tapper] Torney, however after research it seems that the actual "can car maker" is Sandy Sanderson of New Zealand. They are really amazing and the detail is superb!
The story that Albert made these was posted with little research and credited to him by mistake.
This one is particular interesting "Guinness II" model has it has a "widget" inside to make it rattle. :)
