'Unable to rustle up the £15m he needed to buy his dream Ferrari, car enthusiast Chris Smart came up with an innovative solution - paint it on his garage door.

He spent two weeks sketching and painting the rare 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO with weather resistant paints.

Now neighbours and passers-by could be forgiven for thinking the customer support worker has traded in his BMW 1 Series for a classic motor.'

Pretty cool:

Reminds me of those 3D chalk art some people do on sidewalks and roads.

It be a bit more believable if the garage wasn’t so clean.

The paint can in the lower right corner gives it away.
The Perspective is way off.

Nice art work.
This sure doesn't look like the 250GT of 1962 as I remember.
I had a '59 250gt and they were very similar. One of the great Navy fliers of Vietnam era had one in Mission Beach/San Diego. Seems a group of the fliers had decided that Ferrari's were it before they went off for Vietnam.
One had a 62 250gt, another had an envious '65 Luso.
Haven't checked - hope they all made it back.

There’s someone out there who sells murals you can stick on your garage door showing the garage containing exotic cars, airplanes, Grand Central Station, pallets of gold bars, all sorts of interesting things.

He did what he could afford. Better than actually buying a car he couldn’t afford.

Maybe the garage floor haas a sharp slope towards the door opening to keep out the rain?

PS The car is in a bit crooked for a garage that loaded w/ junk.

You need to post a picture of President Bush on his mountain bike next to that one of Obama. Talk about a study in contrast!

One of the greatest artists of cars is opening this week with his show called Shifting Gears: The Art of Tom Daniel.

A fabulous guy and an amazing conservative, Tom will be here Saturday night. His models for Peterbilt are legendary.

Goodness!!!!! What happened there. Wow! That’s got to be some story. I wonder a) what the driver of the truck thought when he got out of his vehicle and saw he had crashed into a garage and crushed a Ferrari; and b) what type of gun the owner of the house/car used to dispatch the truck driver.
