When You See How This Man Restored An Old Mercedes, You Won’t Believe Your Eyes.
“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure” is a common maxim, but few people have directly applied it in their lives. When most of us throw something away, we cease to think about how it may have been useful. Even when we recycle, we don’t usually imagine what will be done with our cans and bottles.
One man strives to see the value in what others regard as rubbish. This Lithuanian innovator took an old, worn Mercedes and transformed it into a sports car that looks like it just rolled off the assembly line. At the end, he not only had a beautiful, high-performing vehicle, but could take pride in the fact that the old car did not go to waste.
A Mercedes On His Mind
Like many car enthusiasts, this man had long regarded Mercedes-Benz as the pinnacle of automotive attractiveness and performance. A new Mercedes exudes power and sophistication, making it one of the best status symbols that a person can own.
Optimizing The Old
As beautiful as it may be, a new Mercedes is an enormous investment, requiring more money than even most wealthy buyers are willing to spend. Instead, this man used an older, worn-down version of the vehicle, having a plan to obtain the same quality for a much lower price.
Faults To Fix
Optimizing a vehicle this old would be no easy task. As this picture shows, the car was not entirely in one piece, with many loose parts hanging off. It would need significant repairs and upgrades to make it safe to drive, let alone to be stylish.
The front of the vehicle was in many ways the most seriously damaged area. The hood would need repairs to close properly, and he also needed to replace one of the headlights. He would have to devote his best efforts to this area.
