When you think of cars and movies, what comes to mind? For many people it is going to the classic Drive-in movie theater, watching the bigger-than-life action on a huge screen with a tiny tinny radio attached to your car. For others it could be classic scenes from movies that feature cars, such as the DeLorean in the Back to the Future, the Aston Martin DB5 from various James Bond films, or even the sweet Porsche 928 in Risky Business. But what if you could watch a movie in a converted 1962 Porsche coupe? Sure, you’re thinking, just whip out a portable DVD player, find a Porsche 356, and there you have it… But to one industrious eBay seller, it means something completely different.
Enter the 1962 Porsche 356 Coupe Car-BQ. You may never think about cars, movies, and backyard barbecues (?) the same way again.
The listing describes it as “(o)ne of a kind for the man who has everything or wants everything. Took 10 years to complete with no expense spared. Comes with 32 inch flat screen t.v., blue ray, 8 speaker surround sound system. Done to look authentic.”
In this case, you could tow the Car-BQ to your house, a friend’s house, or even the local park, set up to watch a movie on the flat screen TV, and barbecue, all in one place and on one of the coolest-looking portable barbecues ever. There is even a retractable table that seats four people, a spot for an ice chest, and “stainless steel BBQ utensils included.” Take a look:
While this auction has ended and the reserve was not met, we are hoping the Car-BQ will come up for auction again. We would hate to have to settle for a barbecue made by Porsche designs (even if it was set up next to an outdoor TV to watch movies) instead of a Car-BQ made from a classic Porsche. And as the seller notes, his Car-BQ comes with a clear 1962 title.
As Joel Goodson says in the movie Risky Business: “Porsche. There is no substitute.”
