– Talented teenager has put his automobile talents to use as he built his own car from scrap metals
– According to his mum, when he was younger he made airplanes and helicopters from containers
– The car is a combination of vehicle and motorcycle compartments
It is said that the journey of a thousand miles begin with a step. Kelvin, only a teenager, has made the thousand miles journey.
The young lad built a moving car with – with the aid of local materials – his bare hands and even drives it around town.
In a Facebook video by Drew Binsky, seen by Legit.ng, the teenager demonstrated the use of the car and how he came about its creation.
In the video clip, his mum recounted how, when he was younger, he had tried out creating aeroplanes and helicopters using containers.
She said he would skip school just so he could have time to hone and work on his creations.
Kelvin who lives on the outskirts of Accra, Ghana said he bought the local materials for his car little by little.
When responding to question from his interviewer about the cost of making the vehicle he said:
“It cost a lot, right now i can’t have its total because i have been buying it (the materials) small, small, small small.”
He said it took him approximately three years to complete the ride.
“I did it myself but later my friends came to join me.”
From the video, the car would pass for a lamborgini or any sleek car if it had the touch of standard machines and equipment used in building cars.
Kelvin’s creation again reiterates that Africa has never been lacking in talents or people with brains.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported about a Nigerian teenager who built caterpillar truck controlled with water and syringe.
According to Oluwaseyi, the teenager managed to build a replica of popular heavy loading truck known as a Caterpillar.
Even more interesting about the creation is the fact that he displayed a knowledge of hydraulics by building it to be powered with the use of a syringe and water.
