"Hartz and warm" - In a new episode of the social documentary, cult barracker Elvis indulges in his favorite hobby: tinkering with cars.

He has no automotive training at all.

Since the first broadcast, Elvis has been an integral part of the social documentary "Hartz und cordial"* in the Benz barracks in Mannheim.

The cult man from Mannheim lives with his wife Katrin and their eight children in the former working-class district.

The family man grew up in the Benz barracks and moved back to the settlement with his wife and children in 2007*.

The Hartz IV recipient has an eventful past: Elvis was a drug addict* for a full 22 years.

However, he overcame it thanks to cold turkey.

Because of his open nature and brisk sayings, he made himself so popular with viewers that he got his own web series on Facebook.

MANNHEIM24* reports on this.

The Hartz IV recipient has a great hobby - cars!

Hartz and cordial in the Benz barracks: Elvis is a passionate car mechanic

Elvis lost his driver's license a few years ago.

However, this did not detract from his passion for cars.

Leather seats, speedometer and bonnet - also in the 49th episode of "Hartz and cordially - day by day Benz barracks" it is clear: Elvis loves cars.

In the new episode of the social documentary, he can pursue his favorite pastime again: together with his friend Thorsten, he gets an old Mercedes back into shape.

The men not only share a love of cars, but also a two-year friendship.

According to his own statements, he has owned 30 different cars since he got his driver's license as a young man.

Again and again the family man revels in memories of his wild jaunts.

One story is particularly unusual: “I [discovered] my love for cars as a small child at the age of six.

At that time I was already driving my uncle's first-class Golf in Yugoslavia - when I was six years old," Elvis reveals in the social documentary "Hartz and heartily - Benz barracks day after day".

Hartz and cordial: Elvis in car fever – “We are all kind of in love with cars”

So Elvis probably owes his interest in cars to his family.

“Our whole family – including my sister – all have petrol running in their veins.

We're all kind of in love with cars," continued the viewer's favorite in the 49th episode of the TV show.

The cult barracker often works on vehicles - for him, restoring is more than just a pastime.

"It's nice to see the result of what you've done yourself.

Assembly line work is really not the best thing”, reveals Elvis.

The family man also likes to convert car parts for the household.

For example, he built an illuminated coffee table out of a tire from a car rim and a sheet of glass.

Hartz and sincerely: Why didn't Elvis do any training in the automotive sector?

What might surprise many "Hartz und cordial" fans in view of this car passion: Although Hartz IV recipient Elvis is on the road when it comes to car restoration, the cult barrackler has no automotive training.

But why actually?

After all, he could do what everyone only dreams of: turning his hobby into a job!

“Back then I wanted to learn to be a car mechanic.

I didn't do it because it put me off at the time.

Now in hindsight I regret it.

In the first year of my apprenticeship I would have had to travel from Mannheim to school in Karlsruhe.

The first year would have been just school and no money," Elvis revealed in the 49th episode of the RTLZWEI hit show.

He gave up his dream apprenticeship because of the income in the first year of his apprenticeship.

Over the years, however, Elvis has acquired a lot of knowledge about cars even without training.
