Check out this interactive demonstration, which shows length contraction applied to a taxi traveling at various speeds. Use the slider to pick a speed, or hit start to run through a range of speeds. Notice that the length of the taxi along the direction of motion becomes arbitrarily short as v approaches c. Notice too that the height of the taxi is unaffected.
