This video is a part of a Australian TV Series called “Bush Mechanics”, but it’s true and in this episode, they go on hunt for scrap cars, and they try to make a working car by combining parts.(VIDEO BELOW ARTICLE)
The episode appears on a Youtube channel called: Autofanatai, but it went pretty viral on the social media as well.
Wikipedia describes the show: “Bush Mechanics is a 2001 television documentary series directed by David Batty and produced by the Warlpiri Media Association, featuring an Indigenous Australian take on motor mechanics.
A bush mechanic, in Australian parlance, is someone who uses unorthodox techniques and readily available materials to build or fix mechanical problems. The television show featured Aboriginal people from Yuendumu fixing cars in such a way as they travelled through Central Australia. As they traverse the desert in their dilapidated vehicles, the series followed how they solved multiple car problems with inventive, wacky and unpredictable bush repair techniques.
One example from the series (episode one) involved a station wagon with the band’s equipment on the roof. Since the car was very old, the back half collapsed. They then removed the roof of the car with an axe, turned it upside down, and tied it to the back of the car, loaded the items from the roof onto the same roof–but it is now used as a trailer. They continued down the sandy track dragging the roof behind them.
The television show consisted of five episodes: one initial half-hour documentary, which garnered international recognition, and four subsequent episodes. It was first broadcast by ABC Television (Australia) on 2 October 2001.”
