6-foot man drives waist-high car
HARVARD — When Ernie Eli Adams pulls up anywhere in one of his dwarf cruisers he draws a lot of attention.
The 72-year-old Harvard native who now lives in Maricopa, Ariz. was back in Clay County this week. He drove his latest creation — a 11/16th scale, replica 1934 Ford — in the Clay Center Independence Day parade.
"It wakes people up," he said. "Yeah, I get a real good response."
Even though the top of the car stands only around Adams' waist he has no problem fitting his 6-foot frame inside.
