There is one thing missing from that video, a finished restored vehicle. You can't keep touting nigerian engineering and artisans etc without a final product otherwise it's hard to accept that they are genuinely car fanatics orrrr just found them in a back alley somewhere and bootlaced them back to running order because they were cheap and no-one else would touch them. I'm just getting the top gear african desert vibe from those cars, where I feel those cars are owned because of necessity rather than genuine appreciation.
In most of Africa cars just keep moving down the food chain until they are completely dead, then stripped of any still usable odds and ends to kept others going a bit longer. In more recent times more complex technology seems to prevent cars from being totally mechanically and bodily worn out when electronics failure stops play. Can’t fix an ECU with a hammer and fencing wire.
