Ford’s desire to put a vehicle in Le Mans in the 1960s, along with Henry Ford II’s desire to anger Enzo Ferrari, led to the creation of the GT40. The GT40 you see here isn’t just any old GT40—if there is such a thing—it’s one of the rides that helped secure Ford its first 1-2-3 finish at Le Mans in 1966. More specifically, it’s the vehicle that finished third that year. Chassis number P/1016 is a legendary ride and it could be yours, though it will set you back a cool $9 million or so. A 7.0-liter V8 propels this golden rocket to race-worthy speeds, which is something your neighborhood is just not ready for. It will cross the RM Sotheby’s California auction block in August, so start checking the sofa cushions for change.

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
