Fish Car

Fish CarAn artist is finding it hard to find a parking "plaice" for his silver car since converting it into a giant fish.

Andy Hazell, from Knighton, Powys, has spent thousands turning his Vauxhall Corsa into an 18ft (5.5m) scale model of a sea bass.

Mr Hazell, 48, has also fitted a hydraulic system so the fish can swish its tail, raise its fins and open and close its mouth.

He said: "Some people do think I'm mad, but I love building strange things."

There are 320 fluorescent lights along the fish's streamlined aluminium body and 12-volt motors operate the moving parts.
