ADELAIDE, Australia, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- An Australian man had his car impounded after police discovered he was using a frying pan in place of a steering wheel.

South Australia Police were informed of a suspicious red Mazda and a male driver loitering in the street when they discovered the non-approved steering wheel.

"On arrival, police saw the Mazda sedan drive off along Norman Street before turning into the car park of a unit block," police said. "Police spoke with the driver and inspected his car finding the steering wheel had been replaced with a metal pan and the front number plate had been altered."

Police later discovered the vehicle belonging to the 32-year-old man was unregistered and uninsured. He had also removed a defect label from the car.

The vehicle was impounded for 28 days and the man will appear in court in October.
