His own Cozy Cone

Rick Shalander of Whites Creek, Tenn., liked the “Cars” movie and decided to re-create one of the Cozy Cone Motel cabins in the film. He’s going to use it as a place to park his motorcycle.

He’s building it out of of salvaged materials, including a motor from a hospital bed that will be used to raise the door. The structure is 25 feet tall and 14 feet in diameter at the base.

“You should see all the drivers going by as they break their necks to see what the heck I’m building,” he wrote.

Rick’s Cozy Cone is not yet finished, but it’s shaping up nicely:

Here’s a frame of reference from the film:
