Or He Could Just Have Bought a Smart Car

Quirky News | Orange UK: "A retired mechanic spent three months making his Mini car even smaller - so that it fits in the hold of his motor home.

Lester Atherfold, 67, from New Zealand, trimmed the 10ft long British classic car to a mere 7ft 10ins.

He sliced 2ft from the middle, narrowed the chassis, and fitted a new transmission, sub-frame, clutch and dashboard.

The transformation cost just £95 and the 1100cc mini Mini still does 75mph."
