Video: A Wood Stove is a Unique Way to Heat a Volvo

Offbeat

It gets cold in Switzerland. Cue the wood stove heating system in a Volvo.

Pascal Prokop was excruciatingly cold in his 1990 Volvo 240. Those Swiss winters really mess with your mind, and Prokop found the motivation to equip his station wagon with a wood-burning stove complete with a pipe for all that smoke.

Apparently when Prokop gets too drunk or is too tired, he wants to sleep in his car (or that's what he told to German mag Stern, as Jalopnik reports). The modification was approved by the Swiss government, making his bespoke automobile street-legal. You just can't make this kind of stuff up.
