Mandla (47), from Weilers Farm, south of Joburg started building his car about six years ago.
Mandla calls it “umshini ozishintsayo” – or the machine that changes itself! But Mandla’s self-made Beemer-bakkie is no skorokoro. The married father of six said his car had all the features normal cars have such as air-conditioning, airbags and a sound system. It is powered by a 2-litre engine.
