A student who also works as a pizza delivery man, was seen driving a junk car.

25-year-old Sam Wilson of the United Kingdom, was caught by police driving a Peugeot 306 with no doors, no hood, no lights and no grill.

Wilson allegedly drove the car in this condition for about three miles while using his arms to indicate his turns.

When officers pulled him over, Wilson told them he was taking the car to a junkyard and that he had removed much of the body to sell as spare parts so he can make some money.

Wilson, an electrical engineering student, said that the junkyard only offered him £150 ($251), so he thought if he sold all other parts he can get more money.

“I would not have driven it if I did not think it was safe,” Wilson explained.

Nottinghamshire Police described the vehicle as a “skeleton of a car.”

The father of two children of Nottingham, was fined £110 (about $185) after being convicted of dangerous driving. He also got three points on his driver’s license.
