Default PICS : Converted a Contessa into a "Kitchen Car"

In punjab a new trend has been started to make a restaurant in car. I have made one which is provided with all the facilities of a kitchen. I have taken a Hindustan Motors Contessa and modded it by extending and covering it. Here are some of pictures of my work done.

WOW! This looks really good! Do keep us updated on the work and the finished look.
IMHO, give it a nice attractive bright color and graphics, it will look better.

Converting a scrap car into a home / office accessory is just so cool; the first time I ever saw something like this was a VW Beetle converted into a glass holder (from the bottom).

Check this dream office desk out (originally posted by BHPian Alter_Ego). What I wouldn't give!!

Wow that is one amazing work desk. I would love to own one as soon as i change my profession into some kind of a business man just to have a BMW desk :-)
Making such desks itself can become a new business venture. Sorry to bump the thread.

Good going on the Conti. Would love to see the finished product and will be truly great full if you drag this thread with pictures of it actually functioning as a hotel.
Looking forward to it.
Keep updating

At last this pic makes the w220 a little bit menacing.
But imagine such a desk made of w140 nose!!!
Or even a desk made of a Cadillac Fleetwood nose or a yankee SUV!!!

Wow.Neat and unique. Didnt know what to expect when I read the thread, but was taken aback when I saw the result. Do post some pics of this product

So, do these things just stay stationery at some place or can they be moved around?

These things are stationary because the cooking involves fire so to prevent any mis happening, they are not provided with engine and any of it parts. In simple word its a simple shell.
