the guy made something his probably dreamt about since he was a kid... and he made something out of whatever is in his disposal and made it work. I say props to that for ingenuity. (I think)

I actually think it's pretty awesome - obviously the guy doesn't have a lot of money, but a sh*t ton of creativity.

Ummm...well...I do admire his dedication, focus, and ability to dream if nothing else. I'd say the time he poured into this would be maximized if he could raise funds/support to take a few classes and then he could get picked up in the fabrication shop of the design studio for one of the many domestic Chinese auto manufacturers - hopefully.

Guy's probably getting so much ass now. Mission accomplished.

Not sure who's worse - this guy or the typical lambo driver who parks it in front of Starbucks every Saturday and has never gone over 35mph in it.

what a douchebag comment. not everyone is a billionaire like yourself and can afford to take a private jet to italy to pick up the latest overpriced lamborghini from the factory and bring it back home to show it off to his buddies. That kid did something amazing. He made his childhood dream come true, or at least as much of it as he could given his limited resources. That's more than I can say about a lot of people (myself included, unfortunately).

Douchebag comment? I beg your pardon. Look no further than the assumptions made by yourself about me to find total douchebaggery. This is my opinion of the video and what I was expecting to see. Not the builders current financial state or socioeconomic status. In other words calm the fuck down.
