Hurricane Matthew made landfall earlier this week, and automotive enthusiasts are scrambling to shack-up their cars before the winds cause undue damage. Some stuff their rides in their garage, or even rent out sturdy storage space to ride out the tropical storm. Other enthusiasts, like Instagram user Jalilsup, take things a little further.
As the storm approached the Florida coastline, Randy (Jalilsup) decided the best place for his pristine BMW E30 M3 was right at home. No, we mean it; to stave off damage, he drove his M3 right through the front double-doors of his house, parking it right in the entrance-way.
Although he was unable to drive it while the storm raged outside, he was able to spend some quality time with his BMW, including a sleep-over and a romantic breakfast. In the end, once the maelstrom passed his town, Jalilsup drove the E30 back out onto his front lawn.
Elsewhere, others weren't so lucky. Reports emerged surrounding "moderate damage" to the venerable Daytona International Speedway, including damage to "lights, speakers, signage, fences, gates, awnings and palm trees," according to a statement from the track.
Daytona might've gotten off easy. Severe damage was reported at the New Smyrna Speedway, where it appears an entire grandstand collapsed under the severe hurricane winds.
