Illustration for article titled China Puts Chrysler On A Pedestal

Qu Liming didn't want his house in Liulin, China demolished for a government project, so he parked his car in front of the excavation equipment. It didn't stop them. Now his Chrysler sits atop its own 60-foot-tall mountain.


Qu's house sat on a cliffside overlooking the area and he had no interest in seeing it demolished to make way for a new village, so instead of give up his plot, he parked his car in front of the excavators thinking it would slow them down and give him time to talk it out with officials. Instead it just made the workers mad and they dug around the house and the car, leaving his silver chrysler on top of the massive 60 ft pile of dirt you see above. "They began to dig out all the earth around my car and my home so now it sits on a mountain all of its own I think as a warning to others," Qu said. Sounds like a case of an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object, but it could have been worse, the unstoppable force could've ordered up a death bus. [Austrian Times]
