What's Your Ideal Car?

Now all of us have an ideal car and for many of us it stems from when we were young. But not many of us combined the two to create something rather unique. However that's exactly what mechanic John Bitmead done.
John decided to put his talents at car modification to make a grown up version of the classic Cozy Coupe.
The wacky creation cost a hefty £35,000 to make but judging by the happy look on John's face it was worth every penny!
The car itself is a fully transformed Daewoo Matiz and features every detail of the Cozy Coupe. John meticulously copied the yellow roof, glassless windows and even added the over-sized drinks holder. But one major difference he added was an 80cc engine - making the top speed 70mph. That's a speed we doubt even Usain Bolt could achieve in an original foot powered Cozy Coupe!
John was helped his brother Geoff and friend Nigel Douglas and had this to say about his creation;
"I love setting myself a challenge, and once I'd got the idea in my head I was determined to see it through.
'We were chatting one day about how more people have probably driven a Cozy Coupe than any other kind of car - and it snowballed from there.
'Since making it, we've taken it out on a few trips, and people can't believe their eyes when we come driving down the street in this red and yellow toy car."
