Manuel Uribe gets his own customized car, the Meme Mobile!

The world's heaviest man Manuel Uribe is having a 1989 Chevrolet Astrovan outfitted to support his record-breaking weight, giving him mobility after more than six years of being confined to his bed.

Mr Uribe earned the Guinness World Record as the world's heaviest man in 2006, when he tipped the scales at 1,230 pounds (560 kilograms.) He claims to have since shed more than 500 pounds after making a public call for help.
