This guy’s car just makes me smile; it took him 150 days to build a real-life working Cozy Coupe from the shell of a Daewoo Matiz. I remember my Little Tikes Cozy Coupe back when I was a kid. Pretty cool seeing a working model. He got all the details right too – its even road legal in the UK!

“We took it on the motorway once, but I’m too scared to do it again in case we cause an accident,” Mr Bitmead told AOL
The 800cc engine and running gear were retained from the Matiz donor car. The whole car was shortened, and the front doors heavily modified into a new shape. The roof was made out of steel, and the rear panel and seat unit are fibreglass creations. The front wings and bonnet are the only clue to what this car started out as Daewoo Matiz.
Want your own? Well there is a kit available for the common Smart Car too.
