Napier man tucks car under the bed
A retired mechanic has modified his car so he can tuck it under his bed.
Lester Atherfold, from Napier, cut down his Mini, and at 2.4m in length it now fits inside his motorhome.
"People often laugh at the car, especially young girls for some reason. The car makes people happy - it brings a smile to people's faces," Mr Atherfold told Britain's Daily Mail.
"No other car in the world would fit under your bed, and it can sneak into the smallest of parking spaces."
Mr Atherfold's cherry-red 1964 Mini 850 is 20 per cent shorter than it was after he chopped out 60cm from the middle.
He fitted a new motor, transmission, subframe, clutch and dashboard from a Mini Clubman, spending only $200.
