We've seen various types of vehicle modifications over the years from unique rims to body alterations, and engine upgrades to interior improvements. We've seen it all, and there seems to be no stopping the customisation process. One owner from the Clanwilliam district in the Western Cape went about modifying his old Isuzu KB bakkie.

According to the video, he left for work early one morning and suddenly felt how his neck developed stretch marks. Upon opening the bonnet, he saw that his bakkie had been "chipped and Nosh" has been added, as well. Now, read carefully, because chipped and Nosh can be very misleading.

As the driver brings his cellphone closer to the bakkie's engine, a Dorito chip appears from behind the electronics. And on the other side of the engine bay, a Nosh chocolate was placed. The driver jokes that when he hooked third gear and laid on the throttle, he could feel the additional 24kW brought about by the 'chip' and that the 'Nosh' gives it a far greater kick.

The video is filmed in Afrikaans, so herewith the translation of what the driver said:

"I got to my bakkie this morning, the Green Danger. And on my way to work, when I hooked third gear and mashed the throttle, I could feel 'jeez, my neck is getting stretch marks'. So I opened the bonnet to see what's happening with the engine, and my f*ck, here at the computer box, they chipped it! That's about 24kW extra.

"But that's f*ck all, they even added Nosh. Now it's running lekker. Green Danger, yster!" (yster (iron): term of endearment to praise)
