A man has been mercilesly mocked online after police pictures revealed he was driving without a roof – after he cut it off in an attempt to turn the sedan into a convertible.
The bashed-up white Hyundai was stopped after its driver allegedly ran a red light after yelling at a nearby police car just before 1am on Sunday in the Adelaide beach suburb of Glenelg.
South Australia Police revealed over Facebook that the car was a standard Hyundai Excel sedan, but the owner had cut the roof off to turn it into a convertible.
Police found the car had significant crash damage to the rear – not to mention the fact it was a dodgy makeshift convertible
The 25-year-old driver and the passengers caught the attention of police when they yelled at the patrol car on Jetty Road in Glenelg before immediately driving through a red light, police claim.
When the car was pulled over police discovered the driver’s license had been expired for six years and was on bail not to drive, officers will allege.
SA Police also noted that the car had significant crash damage to the rear of the vehicle.
Those who saw the pictures posted to the SA Police and Dash Cam Owners Australia Facebook pages have ridiculed the driver for his behaviour in front of police.

‘The brain cells were weak in this one,’ one wrote.
‘Please sterilise this person. Don’t let it breed,’ another commented.
‘They really do dob themselves in,’ a third commented.
While some were more impressed by the 25-year-old’s efforts to improve his Hyundai Excel.
‘Never seen a better looking Excel,’ one marvelled.
‘Looks way better without the roof than it ever did with the roof,’ wrote a second.
‘I’m not even mad. Go hard or go home,’ another commented.
There were some who couldn’t help but see the funny side of the whole situation.
‘The only real crime here is that a person had a four-door Excel,’ one commented.
‘You cannot make a Hyundai Excel any better even by chopping the f***ing roof off,’ wrote another.
‘The convertible conversion actually doesn’t look bad?!,’ wrote a third.
The 25-year-old driver from Elizabeth Downs was arrested and charged with driving unlicensed, failing to stop at a red light, breach of bail and breaching vehicle standards.
The convertible was defected at the scene before being towed.
