Lamborghini as Wall Art.

Richard Moriarty bought this 1974 Lamborghini Countach 10 years ago. Now, sick and tired of having it towed due to stalled engine, he decided to hang it on his wall as art.

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."

I know someone with a F1 nose cone with wing on their wall. A Jordan, with a raised keel it looks amazing (minus that whole Jordan thing :) There are a number of people with motorcycles in their places as well. This guy is the amped out version.
