HOUSTON (AP) — Parking hasn't been a problem for one oddly placed vehicle in traffic-busy Houston.

City officials have ordered a design company to remove a fake Mini Cooper attached to the upper part of an exterior wall near a sidewalk.

Safety concerns have been raised about the shell of the small auto, complete with tires, above some outer windows at Internum & Design.

Code enforcement officials since late December have cited the business, using warning stickers with notice to immediately remove the car from the building.

A message left Tuesday with Internum was not immediately returned.
