A Pune man has built a miniature vintage car for his daughter.
Javed Sheikh took four months to build the car at a garage in Pune’s Pimpri-Chinchwad locality.
The detailing and precision of the red car makes it stand out on the streets.
Javed’s daughter Tanjila while visiting a Mumbai mall set her heart on a toy car on display.
On enquiring, he found the toy, costing Rs 60,000, was manufactured in China.
Being a sinophobe and automobile expert, he decided to build a car for his daughter from scratch.
After the country went into a pandemic-induced lockdown, Javed spent all his time and efforts in building the car.
After gathering all the necessary parts, he started assembling them in his garage.
Javed’s father also helped him out.
After months of hard work, the red vintage car is now ready to cruise down the street.
Tanjila loves taking her car for a ride, even as onlooker stop on their tracks to take a look.
Complete with shock absorbers, battery, steering wheel and a cushioned seat, the car uses an engine found in two-wheelers.
Javed has plans to modify the vehicle for a more light-weight and battery-friendly model.
