Who knew cars could be religious? Apparently Proton's making a car they plan to build in Malaysia, Iran and Turkey — highlighted by an order to supply 5000 taxis to Teheran. Proton's claiming the car they'll be using to fill the order will be an "Islamic car." What makes it so religiously tag-lined? How about that it's fitted with a compass pointing to Mecca and a compartment to store prayer scarves and a Koran. Jeez, if that's what determines whether a car is Islamic, methinks any car with a glove compartment and a broken compass pointing an extra 90 degrees clockwise would also be a follower of the five pillars.

This will be the only car to declare a jihad on infidel imports. Optional packages include optional roof rack to carry your multiple wives and gender detector to ensure your wife does not drive your Proton. The hidden camera to ensure your wife travels with a male family member costs an extra 10 goats. On another note, Fiat will be introducing the Cura Edition of the Multipla. Apparently, all rows of passenger seating comes with integrated child safety seats (sans the driver of course). Ford responded with the F-250 Evangelical Edition, while there is no discernable difference, the owner of the vehicle must constantly put money into it or face the fear of a potential breakdown...I could go on and on but I think getting banned would be a bad idea. On that note, back to watching reruns on youtube and playing the Jalopnik drinking game. I wonder if this is the link I sent.
