A MOTORIST has converted his classic car into a dazzling Christmas light display in a nod to the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck، the sun reported.

The 1964 Morris Minor is covered in a whopping 10،000 fairy lights - but its owner can no longer take it out on the road.

Calvin Lee، inspired by the famous soft drink commercial، spent two weeks fixing the battery powered LED lights to his vintage motor.

Complete with a real tree attached to the roof، the car is now drawing in crowds around his home in Scunthorpe، North Lincolnshire.

The 41-year-old completed his festive motor with sacks of presents and a fake Father Christmas sat at the wheel، spending just £300 on the project.

But the large amount of wiring means Calvin is unable to drive the Morris on the road anymore.

Unfortunately، the impressive display breaches a number of traffic laws that would likely attract a fine if the motor was taken out on the road in its current state.

Bright lights have the potential to confuse other road users، particularly if red، blue or green lights appear at the front of the car and white lights at the back.

Under the Road Vehicles Lighting Regulations 1989، drivers aren't permitted to shine unusually coloured lights from their vehicles، other than the ones they were made with، meaning fairy lights are off limits.

And as far as the external decorations go، anything that could potentially fall off the car and into the path of another motorist pose a risk.

The tree and sacks sitting on the roof could pose a danger to other road users if they flew off while driving.

But Calvin doesn't intended to take his classic car out on the road any time soon، instead displaying it outside his home as a charity fundraiser.
