'Carhenge' is a tribute to Stonehenge built in Nebraska, USA. It is made as a copy of the original, but with old American cars – the heel stone, for example, is a 1962 Cadillac. Also Read - Drunk Man Leaves Cash And Booze Behind After Robbing Restaurant, CCTV Camera Records Hilarious Crime Scene
Carhenge was built in 1987 by artist James Reinders with the help of relatives. It took them 38 old cars and a lot of gray paint to do the job. It sits on 10 acres of former farmland. It is operated by a non-profit organisation called Friends of Carhenge, who have now put it on sale for USD 300,000.

The original plan was to develop the tourist attraction into a bigger site with a karting track and a petrol pump as well, but lack of funds means that the plans will not come to life. The money from the sale will be used to pay off operating loans, start an art scholarship and promote local tourism.
More than 80,000 visitors make a trip to Carhenge each year, which is open all days of the year. It is particularly popular during the summer solstice. We're not sure if Carhenge will last as long as Stonehenge, but it certainly is an interesting addition to your 'things to own' if you're a car nut with USD 300,000 to spare.
