Smokin' hot Volvo

I used to drive a Volvo 240 wagon like Mr. Prokop's; check out the pictures at the link. I liked mine - though it would hardly get out of its own way.

Swiss man replaces car's broken heater with a wood burning stove

When his Volvo's heater broke, Pascal Prokop took drastic action to avoid the bitter Swiss winter and installed a wood burning stove in the front of his car.

As Europe is brought to its knees by the big freeze, motorists have been advised to take extra precautions when making long journeys.

Drivers and passengers are now making sure they have torches, blankets, food rations, wellies, a thermos of sweet hot tea and a map, just in case their journey is interrupted by an unexpected blizzard.

But if Pascal falls prey to the current precipitation predicament, he won't be too bothered.

He drives a 1990 Volvo 240 - a model that is usually seen with a couple of black labradors and muddy football boots in the back - but in Pascal's car you'll find a fully functioning wood-burning stove.
