New Indian car comes complete with built-in barbeque!

No charcoal briquettes required!




Um, could somebody save my celebration decoration? I don't think it's gonna take the heat well...

What about the garland of marigolds, visible emerging from the front? Is that the engine compartment?

Hey, never mind, it's a rear engine vehicle.....not ready for prime time.

If that situation was somehow combined with sudden acceleration you would have something really frightening.

GM Issues Recall for 5,000 Heavy Duty Vans Over Engine Fire Risk

And from the originally posted article:
"The Nano is a wonderful product, but these incidents really tarnish the image of the car as well as the company," Rathore said. "This is the time for Tata to have a deep look at quality."
He said the recent addition of Carl-Peter Forster, former head of General Motors in Europe, as group chief executive is a step in the right direction.
"They've got a guy running the show now who knows how the industry should work," he said. "How soon will the effects be seen across the Tata product range? Well, that will take time."

I love it! A la James Bond - an anti-tailgater device. Just put a flame thrower on you bike's exhaust.
