A fire in Olathe, Kansas ended up doing an estimated $80,000 worth of damage to a couple’s home, but the homeowner asked the firefighters to save his most prized possession: his red Ferrari that was still in the garage.
Olathe Battalion Chief Bill Parker said, “While the guys were fighting the fire, the other company’s in there pushing the Ferrari out. It’s kind of like they went to that pretty quick. It’s a nice car.”

The Queen has been gifted a Royal carriage by Australia, a carriage that took nearly two years and 50 craftsmen to complete. It’s odd however that Australia’s former Prime Minister John Howard commissioned the carriage to be built and the country’s current PM Kevin Rudd actually wants a referendum on the monarchy.
The state coach Brittania was designed and built in Sydney by Jim Frecklington and under the guidance of the Duke of Edinburgh, a renowned carriage driver himself. It’s valued at £620,000 ($892,716) and also contains a time capsule containing elements of British history including wood from the Mayflower and more gold than any other vehicle made in Britain for almost 200 years.

Richard Moriarty bought his ’74 Countach in 1999 and ever since the car started performing badly, he’s just gotten sick of having it towed. What’s a man to do but to turn the Lamborghini into wall art.
The skylight was designed to fit the car and it took less than an hour to bring it into the house. Architect Fleetwood Joiner explains:
Because Home Depot doesn’t sell kits to hang cars as artwork, Moriarty hired a 70-ton crane to lower the Italian sports car through a skylight in his living room. … Moriarty bought the car 10 years ago, paying a collector $60,000. But the upkeep was a nightmare. The gas tank had rust damage, and the engine kept stalling. “I got tired of having it towed,” he said. … Then a five-man crew maneuvered the 1,000-pound, engineless vehicle through the skylight and hung it from a steel-reinforced wall with loops of half-inch-thick steel cable. “It’s a beautiful piece of art,” Joiner said. But Moriarty, in flip-flops, shorts and a T-shirt, wasn’t quite satisfied. “I want to stencil some tire marks on the wall,” he said. “Seriously.”
