Man Installs Wood-Burning Stove in His Car

Pascal Prokop of Switzerland didn't want to wait for the European cold snap to end. So he yanked the front passenger seat out of his Volvo and put in a wood-burning stove:

Pascal Prokop, who lives in Switzerland, caused a minor internet stir when photos of his stove-car near Mettmenstetten, a town 25 kilometres south of Zurich, began to circulate on Friday. [...]

Mr. Prokop obtained an operating permit for his stove-car from the Swiss Technical Inspection Authority, making it perfectly legal to operate.

There was a fiddle player/busker in Ohio and MI who did something similar. He ripped out the front passenger seat and installed a wood stove and chimney in order to convert his mini-van into a mobile (literally) home. I wish I could find a picture to prove it. He got stopped a lot by cops, especially if he was baking potatoes and driving. Technically there was nothing illegal about it, though.

That is one reason I would like to live way out in the country. You can make as much noise as you want, light yourself on fire and run around naked and not have to worry about the neighbors getting their undies in a bunch.

I think I remember them doing something like this on Top Gear. It was a Mercedes that Clarkson turned into a mobile cottage with a wooden floor and a wood burning stove or fire place.
