We all know that finding yourself in a middle of the dessert is the dangerous situation, let alone if your car breaks down, and this was exactly what had happened to this man and which made him come up with the best DIY escape plan you have seen in years.
Emile Leray is the name of this French mechanic who got stuck in the middle of the desert and while taking the road trip to Morocco back in 1993. His all time love, the Citroen 2CV, was the vehicle he traveled with.
Back in his home in Melesse, he has bunch of them, and most of them have been modified in any way. But this specific car tune has saved his life. Well, how is that possible?
It was not his first time that he traveled to Morocco, and he knew most of the roads and places. His problems started when he was stopped in the little village by the name of Tilemsen by a military.
They demanded him to return to Tan-Tan. Instead he took another road. And then, out of the blue, he hit the rock which destroyed his front axle and the chassis.
He did something amazing afterwards. So, he used the body as a shelter. But what did he do? He turned the Citroen into the fully functional motorbike! And he spent 12 days and 11 nights in a desert until he was finally ready to go back to civilization.
Fortunately he took lot of tools with him before he went on a trip. Check the video below for the full story about the ultimate DIY escape plan!
