Once owned by television legend Dick Clark, this one-of-a-kind residence in Malibu was designed to look just like the home of Fred and Wilma from the classic 60′s cartoon – The Flintstones. The single story home has one bedroom, two bathrooms, a fireplace and several large glass windows offering views of city lights and sunsets as well as Serrano Valley, the Boney Mountains, the Channel Islands and the Pacific Ocean.

 Henry Ford, founder or Ford Motor Company, changed the world of automobiles and ensured that they were not only reserved for the elite, but the working man as well. Bringing mass production into the automotive industry, Ford built a transport ship called the Benson Ford in 1924 to carry coal and iron across the Great American Lakes. Fast forward to 1981 and the ship was sold to Frank J. Sullivan who decommissioned the ship and turned it into a four story on the bay of Lake Erie.
