Finnjet - A 29-Foot-Long Junk Limousine Worth $1 Million

What weighs 7,500 pounds, is 29 foot long and made completely from junk scraps? Why, a limousine of course. 'Finnijet' belongs to Antti Rahko, a 72-year-old chauffeur from Finland. He immigrated to the US in 1984 and is now a resident of Palm Beach, Florida.

It took Rahko 10 whole years to build the limousine from scratch, initially using two Mercedes Benz station wagons joined together, several parts from a 1962 Chrysler Imperial and various components from other vehicles.
