Swiss Man Installs Wood-burning Stove in Car

Europe is currently experiencing a pretty nasty cold snap. With plummeting temperatures, huge amounts of snow, and treacherous roads, it's hardly surprising that a number of people have lost their lives as a result of the bad weather. However, it seems one man in Switzerland is determined to ward off the cold no matter what -- even if it means resorting to rather unconventional methods.

This is Pascal Prokop. Pascal drives a 1990 Volvo 240 station wagon, which he has, uh, improved, with the addition of a real wood-burning stove. According to the captions on the photos, which are credited to Reuters, Mr. Prokop obtained an operating permit for his stove-car from the Swiss Technical Inspection Authority, making it perfectly legal to operate. We're sure it's perfectly safe. Apart from the fire.
