You spin me right round: Turntable driveways for your car

Anybody that lives on a busy road or has a lot of cars knows that getting vehicles in and out of the driveway can be a logistical nightmare. Traditional options for curing this problem range from widening the driveway to creating one of those horseshoe-shaped driveways. Pouring concrete can get pricey too, but an old auto show staple, the turntable, is now available as a cure for parking problems.

Turntables aren't just for locomotives and auto show displays anymore. You can have an automobile-sized turntable installed in your garage or driveway for around $8,400 and up. There are some very expensive options, too, which need a foundation of poured concrete and can cost upwards of $40,000. For the same price as the car they're spinning, these Lazy Susans had better work as advertised. Apparently some folk, however, are willing to spend a lot of dough to forgo rearranging the driveway at 5 AM. The scribes at the Wall St. Journal even found compiled a list of companies that make and install turntables.
