COMPANY PARKING...IN A SENSE: Above shows a Mini Cooper, attached to the wall of a design store in Houston.

 
HOUSTON, Texas - Mini Coopers aren't the sort of car to which conservative types gravitate so it's ironic that a store in Houston, Texas has turned one into a wallflower... literally.

Internum, a design and interiors store, has received a red tag from the city of Houston for having a Mini Cooper mounted on its street wall.

The City of Houston violation reads:  “Remove car from building front, barricade sidewalks at front - do this immediately.”

'UNPERMITTED WORK'

The sticker says that this is the second violation for “unpermitted work” issued to Internum since the Mini was mounted on the wall.

The violation was dated December 27 2012 but as of January 8 2013 car’s is still hanging there.

It’s not clear whether the orange construction barrels and reflective signs placed on the pavements will count as barricades in the eyes of city inspectors.
