Launching a Ford Mustang model car to space and watching it return to earth.

I’ve seen lots of crazy things being done with scale models, but this guys went -literally- really far. They attached a Ford Mustang scale model to a weather balloon with two video cameras. At a 21 miles of altitude, they let the balloon explode, letting the model car fall back to earth. Surprisingly, the cameras and the model car survived the trip!

You can see the whole trip recorded in this video:
