You Can Take It With You

While KBCULTURE primarily pursues all things kitchen and bath, we're not immune from following our bliss into other realms that overlap this focus. With the perfect storm of the Consumer Electronics Show and Detroit's automobile extravaganza both taking place this week, what better occasion to flashback to this tricked-out 1947 Caddy? Owner Louie Mattar customized it with complete bathroom and kitchen facilities [see the fender-mounted shower, backseat stove and combination washing machine/toilet above] and much more in preparation for his non-stop, cross-country drive made in 1952. Gearheads will be impressed by the plethora of under-the-hood shots at the redoubtable Hemmings blog.
