Islamic Cars

Looks like regular cars are not good enough for the Muslums any longer.

Malaysian automaker Proton plans to team up with companies in Iran and Turkey to produce "Islamic cars" for the global market, a news report said Sunday.

Proposed by Iran, the collaboration would include installing features in automobiles such as a compass to determine the direction of Mecca for prayers, and compartments for storing the Quran and headscarves, Proton's Managing Director Syed Zainal Abidin told national news agency Bernama.

That just goes to show you that marketing is universal! MY truck has a compass. It also has multiple compartments. Is it a 'muslim' vehicle? I guess it is if they drive it!

How silly can people be?!
