It may be safe to say that every man on Earth dreams of having his very own car. Some have specific preferences as to what brand, type, or color they want.

Some even prefer the luxurious ones. These are the cars that are worth Millions of Dollars. But, why buy one when you can make one for yourself?

How? Just follow what this man did to get his hands on his dream car.

Meet Ken Imhoff, the man who built his dream car with his bare hands. After Ken watched Cannonball Run, he fell in love with the Lamborghini Countach featured in the film that he promised he should have one.

At that time, he can’t afford it, so he decided to make one.
