I used to go to an annual outdoor party where, one year, there was a Mini pick-up that had been converted into a 'hot tub' with the water heating piped from the cooling system! Think I might have mentioned it before, come to think of it....

why go to all the trouble of converting a classic mini to a burger van and then sell it? Talk about reducing your target market. Might just as well have painted it pink......No bloke would buy a pink car and frankly not many women would either......Seemed like a good idea at the time, I suppose...
