I think this qualifies as "on-topic" for alt.home.repair.
If you want to see a picture:
They're calling this an apartment, but it looks more like a house to me.
I'm impressed that the roof can take the weight of the car. Also
strange is that the car didn't roll off.

The driver, who fled the scene in California in his boxer shorts, is
said to have lost control in foggy conditions, and hit some large rocks
that sent the car flying into the air.
Police say the driver of the stolen vehicle was speeding and hit a
raised area of the road and became airborne.
No one was injured in the incident in Fresno, California despite two
people being in the house at the time.
"It appears that they climbed the berm (kerb), the car begins to go
airborne, strikes a boulder and a tree stump that further lifts the car
airborne and launched it upon the roof about 10 feet behind it," Lt.
Anthony Martinez of the Fresno Police said.
Some residents of the area were startled and thought the whole thing was
"At first I though it was a prank like you've been punked or something,
I thought somebody lowered the car on the house because that's not
something you see everyday," witness Jeanell Ricks said.
Police arrested a 26-year-old man a short distance away from the
accident scene. He faces charges of driving a stolen vehicle.
The vehicle was later removed from the roof by a crane.
