Factory worker, Keith Mitchell, spent 1600 and a year and a half of his spare time on the electric van, which can reach a speed of eight miles per hour and can travel an impressive 16 miles on a single charge. Motorhead Keith built the VW at his home in Newcastle and unveiled the present to his delighted son Oscar - who already had toy replicas of the van - for his third birthday this month (July.) The father and son duo have since travelled around town in the green and white campervan which is controlled by Keith and includes a fake steering wheel for Oscar. The van - powered by a mobility scooter on a custom fabricated frame - also features working lights, wipers, indicators and a horn and lifts up and down just like a real splitscreen campervan. Keith, 46, said: The idea came from attending car shows and the whole project took around 20 months of my spare time. It cost 1600 without counting the man hours.
