August 31st is International Bacon Day! Did you know that? I was actually unaware of the pending festivities until someone pasted a photo this rad Bacon Wrapped Car on my FaceBook page. Apparently Ford Fiesta drivers now have a new way to express their Bacon love! The automotive giant is offering buyers of 2014 model Fiestathe opportunity to have their new cars wrapped in one of four vinyl graphics, each featuring delcious Bacon. Designs range from a few bacon racing stripes to a hog-wild helping of bacon graphics wrapped around the entire car. This is definitely not a joke and you can check out all of the Bacon Designs on Ford’s Fiesta Graphics page, at This Link!
“This car (a 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V Limousine) sits in the lobby of the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, British Columbia. It once belonged to John Lennon, hence the paint job. But that’s not the only customization. Inside, apparently, there is a fold-out bed, a portable refrigerator, and a record player. There also used to be a TV. Bear in mind, all these changes were made in the mid-to-late 1960s, when the whole refrigerator-and-TV-in-a-car thing were much more impressive feats of technology.” On June 29th in 1985, the car sold for a record sum of $3,006,385, (£1,768,462) at a Sotheby’s auction in New York.
