room air conditioner use in car????

I know this is a strange idea but our old cars air conditoner very expensive to repair and not really sure how long the car is going to last...Idea. I noticed at wal mart for about $80 you could get a high powered inverter...I have a small fairly new 5000 btu room aircondiners (we just went to central air) that were not using hmmm.. I wonder could this possibly work... using a room air conditioner maybe on the passenger seat with a inverter for a car air conditioner....not sure about the venting part of it tho...

hehe let me know if this is completly ridicilous idea

Remember that while the front half of the unit is blowing cool air, the back half is exhausting the heat extracted. You would need to mount it in a window opening or devise some sort of an exhaust arrangement.

Ya, quite ridiculous.
Rolling down the window makes more sense.
