At least that's what happened at 3303 Kirby Ave in Houston, where the City posted a red tag on the building demanding "Remove car from front."

Here at Jalopnik, we bring you stories from across the globe, from the Nürburgring to the Baja to Colombia and Sicily. But arguably no other place brought us (and you) as much joy as Florida, the largest hotbed of wackiness in these United States. Here are our favorites this year.
