Don't judge a book by its cover! This rickety car proves everyone wrong by going beyond its limits. See it drives away overloaded.

Looks can be deceptive. This visibly worn-out car is a true example of that saying. From its appearance, you will think it is a condemned object. You cannot be blamed for arriving at that conclusion because its entire body is rickety. And when you are done writing it off, the car gives you a shocker. Not only does it start, it drives away with the excess load humped on it.

There is the tendency to think that the car was able to move by chance, but that is not the case. It is a clear case of judging a book by its cover. Although the exterior of the car is nothing to write home about, its engine is still in a relatively good condition. It is probably even better than some cars that look new.

One thing is certain though – the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will not allow such a car to ply Nigerian roads because it does not look roadworthy. The owner would have to work on the body to be able to move around freely in it.
