We have shared many stories of incredible inventions from Nigerians and those living outside the country. Many times, these innovative individuals had to work with the cheapest materials around to build cars we wouldn't have imagined in our wildest dreams. Here is the story of a talented boy that built a Toyota Hilux replica and he stirred mixed reactions online. The skilled 18-year-old boy is in a technical school in Tarkwa, Western Region of Ghana. According to reports, the boy built his own functional pickup truck from scratch.
The functional pickup truck was created by the 18-year-old Ghanaian boy
The boy named his creation "Never Give Up" as he claimed to have faced some difficulties along the way while trying to achieve his dream. The vehicle uses fuel and the young Ghanaian didn’t shy away from showing us how it works. It was gathered that he spent 8 months on the project. During his test run, he explained that he hasn't encountered any issues with the vehicle so far.
