Old Mercedes on the Tse Addo Trotro route in Accra Ghana

This old Mercedes Truck was found parked at the Kpogas trotro bus stop, Accra, Ghana. It is common to see such antiquated vehicles in Ghana because of high maintenance culture.  This truck may be 40 years old, judging from the design technology, but it still runs smooth and performs all duties except that it may not be so fast.

Such vehicles port heavy cargo across short distances and have an astonishing roadworthy status despite their age.
