Do you love your car so much that you could go to bed with it or invite it into your kitchen? If so, a team of Berlin architects has designed the ultimate living space for you and your machine: the drive-in apartment.
The idea is simple, yet also faintly disturbing. An elegant but heavy-duty lift — strong enough to hoist an armour-plated vehicle — lifts the limo directly to the loft-style apartment. It is parked in a kind of conservatory with only a large glass wall separating it from the living space.
Whenever you feel the need to stroke the bonnet of your Mercedes you simply slide back the wall — and bond.
“Cars have become design statements, an expression of your lifestyle,” says Johannes Kauka, the managing director of Topos, which is completing the pioneering apartment block in a run-down area of Berlin. “So why not integrate them properly into your life?” The effect is to make the car part of the interior decoration: a work of art that the proud owner can admire from his sofa.

A parking spot right outside your door? Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

They have devised all kinds of neat lifts to save space there, including a parking garage that the elevator puts your car in a slot for retrieval later"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin

08-14-2008, 06:21 PMIn stunning news that will have wide ranging implications for many years to come, a man has been found who likes having sex with cars.
The details of mechanic Chris Donald's alleged romantic vehicular liaisons have been unearthed by (naturally) The Sun - who claim that in addition to a large number of cars, Mr Donald has also done the dirty with two boats and a jetski.
Mr Donald apparently says that his sexual fetish may have been triggered by formative childhood experiences watching Knight Rider.
'When I was a young boy I used to see human qualities in cars,' he says. 'As I grew up I noticed I was having feelings towards cars and they began catching my eye in a certain way.'
I'm saying nothing ... :D
