9. The Voxmobile (from the same maker as the Batmobile)
In 1967, legendary amp manufacturers Vox commission George Barris, the man behind the Batmobile to help them promote their wares. The car itself was originally designed to star alongside Jack Nicholson in a 1968 counter-culture, acid-themed road movie called Psych-Out in which Jack’s character was called Stoney… Unfortunately for VOX all the scenes in which the car featured were left forlornly on the cutting-room floor and the very thing it was designed for it never managed to achieve.
This particular piece of modern American history recently came up for sale on Ebay and the reserve was an eye-watering $175,000.
Found on Voices of East Anglia.

11. A Look inside the Parisian Cabinet of Curiosities, Tombées du Camion
“Tucked away in a forgotten passageway, between the upmarket fashion boutiques of Rue des Abbesses and the fall from grace to the seedy strip of Pigalle, you’ll stumble upon one of the most unusual and captivating spaces in Paris… I myself stumbled upon this spot on my first trip to Paris. It never left my memory, and when I eventually moved to the city it was the only place I left my CV. I now pass hour after happy hour working there, steeped in anachronistically organized chaos, never knowing quite how to sum up what we sell.”
