Johannesburg - Northern Cape police in Kimberley have impounded a 1976 Toyota bakkie whose only roadworthy part was its windscreen, Beeld reported on Thursday.

The owner, Tawanda Mubaiwa a Zimbabwean, told police that he had bought the car for R5 000 from a South African in 2011. He was fined, and the car was permanently impounded.

"In my 40 years as a traffic policeman, it was the worst car I've ever seen on the road," head licensing officer for the Sol Plaatje municipality, Moses Alfonse, told the newspaper.

The bakkie had only two gears, the tyres were completely smooth, the shock absorbers had been tied into position with wire, and the driver had been using a leaking five-litre plastic bottle, which he had mounted in the engine, as a petrol tank.

"Nothing worked. It had no lights, no wipers and only rudimentary car seats," Alfonse said after the car was pulled off the road on Wednesday.
