Mobile Wedding Chapel

If a shotgun wedding isn't fast enough for ya, you can get married in the world's fastest church: a mobile wedding chapel (converted from a firetruck) owned by Rev. Darrell Best.

His 1942 firetruck is by no means a Ferrari, but it is equipped as a fully functioning chapel.

"I've had it up to 55 mph," Best said. "It gets a lot of attention on the highway."

Mechanics from the Country Music Television show "Trick My Truck" did the conversion after Best's family wrote to the program last year. The chapel has stained-glass windows, a pipe organ, an altar and two wooden pews.

Couples recently paid $100 to get married in the tiny church at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. "It fits me, the bride, the groom, the best man and the maid of honor," said Best, of Shelbyville, Ill. "It gets a little crowded, but it works."

Something about this makes me feel like a picture not hanging quite straight. *snap* I know! Why is Elvis not driving this thing?!
