Ever wanted something so bad that you decided to make it yourself? Usually its something small like a cake or something from an arts and crafts book.

Obakeng Thetele was a bit more ambitious, he couldn't wait to own a car so he took matters into his own hands and built one from scarp metal.

He revealed that he couldn't wait to finish school and buy a car so he did the next best thing and built his own.

Thetele took to Facebook and shared his amazing whip in the #ImStaying group.

He revealed in the comments section that he has other cars he had built.

Obakeng Thetele:

"I have videos where I'm driving and spinning the two cars I've built. To see them please like my page Homebuilt projects."

His post soon went viral and racked up hundreds of comments and thousands of reactions in a couple of hours.

This is what Mzansi had to say about his "whip":

Thembeka KaMagagula Nxumalo:

"Wow, SOOO much talent! The sky is the limit!"

Danzil Nel:

"Somebody please give this young man an engineering bursary. "

Tash-Mika Naidoo:

"You have a natural gift! I wish you much success keep working hard - you will get a bursary! xx"

Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that it is the festive season in Mzansi and of course many people are going balls to the wall and downright acting a fool. One Mzansi driver proved this to be the case after spinning and drag racing his Toyota Corolla recklessly.

In the hilarious yet somehow tragic clip, the car can be seen doing drags and speeding as spectators watch in disbelief and disappointment. Before long the car scrapes past a stationary Toyota Run X, almost completely removing the car's front bumper.
