There's a shed at Brandon near Ayr that has the tail section on the roof at 45 degrees and looks like it smashed into the roof. Don't an image but some one on the forum may post a image.

There's a full size scale model of a Mustang in a farm entrance near Burra in SA,  and two Jaguar MK10 gateposts as a farm entrance near Greymouth NZ

Macca's in Midland, W.A., had a DC-3 in their yard for kids to play on, for years and years, back in the '70's and '80's. Then it was "rescued" - but it still ended up in another blokes garden! - in Myalup.

This is the Macdonalds' DC3 in Taupo, New Zealand. Hamburger eaters and/or coffee drinkers can use the seats inside.
