WASTE: Jaguar Repurposed As Vertical Book Shelf

car-bookshelf-1.jpg

This is a real Jaguar that's been gutted of its heavier parts and hung on a wall to serve as a bookshelf. Why? No clue, I guess that's what rich people do. Not to brag or anything, but I do have a bathtub made out an old NASA space capsule. No, no I don't -- it's an old whiskey barrel and mosquitoes are breeding in it. They bite me whenever I try to go to the bathroom. One time one landed on my peenor and I smacked it so hard I peed on my back.

Hit the jump for a shot of the house the Jag resides in if you were wondering if it was modern or not (SPOILER: yes!).

Vintage Jag reborn now carries poetry not people [dvice]

Thanks to Christie, who has an entertainment center made out of a tank with a functional cannon and everything in case they neighbors want to complain about the noise when she's having a party.

    It is probably not all that much of a money waste.  I have been looking for an affordable bookshelf for the last two years.  If I had enough space and I had thought of it I could have done this with my Chrysler.  As it is I no longer have the Chrysler and I still have no bookshelf.

  • I see problems with the height. Notice counter height and height of top shelf. Might be needing a step stool. 

  • I'm sure that somehow it still has electrical problems. Oh, and the owner has at least one friend that says "you know Ford makes those now, right?"

  • From a purely utilitarian view, it doesn't look like it could hold many books for how much space it takes up. If was dedicating that much wall space to a bookshelf, I would want it to have more than three shelves.

  • I couldn't live like that, it would drive me up the wall :D

    You sir are a genius.  You should receive an award.  Consider yourself enriched to the tune of at least +20 internets.

    I would rather it be in my Drive than on my wall

    I don't know if I'd want that much rust in my house.

  • n_a_a_s

     then try not living with a metal roof in the rainforest

  • jabbawok

    It looks like a series 2 XJ6 and they made them out of rust. I say that, because I've yet to see one that isnt more rust and filler than metal..

  • n_a_a_s

    Ok then, I retract my previous comment because I thought you might've lived in a rainforest & were disgruntled because you recently roofed your place with sheet metal. 

    BTW I think the only you can make with rust is a mess

  • Erm, just because it's a Jag doesn't mean it's THE BESTES MOST EXPENSIVE NICEST CAR EVER, like talk about a Mercedes A-class, I doubt someone ruining one of those would get flak, "But it's a Benz!!! You can't do it!!" Right, and it's not like they bought the Jag brand new and converted it, either it was with them from long before and it's not running well or of course, bought used. I say this is good use for an old car, better use it for decoration then leave it rotting in a garage

  • whacko

    Gee, what a passive aggressive way to say: 

    "Hey look at me! I have too much money!"

  • n_a_a_s

    I'm not sure about this... how do we know some idiot didn't just build that in his driveway?

  • There's a skeeter on my peter, whack it off!
