Limited space is the main concern of cars these days. Ordinary cars have 5 passengers and sports cars have 2. so this design proposes the car can carry more passengers without increasing the body. This invention is a vehicle that can be stretched and compressed with one push of a button or the sports car that can transform into a limousine and/or a limousine that can be transformed to a normal/the sport car. This is done using a modified car chassis and frame (1), hydraulic linear actuator (2), modified transmission shaft (3), modified car sit (4) and modified car body (5).

The objective of the invention is building a multipurpose car in terms of space and comfort. Many cars are either luxury cars with small space or family/non-luxurious car with larger space. The new design gives the car both functions which the luxury and the family car give. This is done by stretching and compressing the car for more space. To do this the design uses the following mechanism or components Flexible car frame that can be draw out and draw in Hydraulic linear actuator that is powered by either with electricity or manual engage or disengage mechanism A transmission shaft that can be lengthen and shorten with locking gear system An exhaust gas pipe that can also protract and shorten Automatically and manually assembling car body Manual stretching car sit.

    I have dedicated my life for invention and research because not only I have big dreams but also it is my only way out of poverty. We all have a talent we know or did not find out yet. Mine happens to be inventing. I discovered this talent of mine when I was in second year student during my university life. Starting from that point everything seemed not important except creating new ideas. So, until now I have invented more than 50 inventions which are new to the world and the rest are intended for Ethiopia that will change the life of many people including mine. But because of poverty, theft and many reasons I could not manage to make it. But all that matter is I will never give up. I will invent until and after I become successful. That makes me a strong entrepreneur. My skills are aided with a mechanical engineering degree on design, production and sales expertise. You can find some of my inventions via
