A student from Nottinghamshire has been fined after he was caught driving a car without any doors, lights or bonnet - and using his arms to indicate when turning.
Sam Wilson, 25, drove the car for almost three miles before he was pulled over.
He was attempting to take it to a recycling centre five miles from his home in Bingham, Nottinghamshire, to sell for scrap.
The father-of-two was found guilty of using a vehicle when its use involved a danger of injury to any person and was fined £110 at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court.He was also ordered to pay £120 costs and given three penalty points on his licence.
Wilson added he thought the car was safe to drive because it still had an MOT certificate - and said he had not removed any of what he thought were key working parts.
The car was eventually collected for scrap and Wilson was paid £70.
He has since bought a new Peugeot.
