Well, one auto worker has some pretty exceptional taste in art!

One unnamed Fiat employee bought two paintings for $25 in an auction in 1975, but the pair of art is actually worth a whopping $50 million.

While you use a forklift to pick up your jaw from the floor, we'll let you know that the paintings in question are Paul Gauguin's Still Life of Fruit on a Table With a Small Dog and Pierre Bonnard's The Girl With Two Chairs.

However, here's where it gets tricky. Apparently, the paintings were stolen from a British couple in 1970, and eventually left on a train from Paris to Turin, which is why they got auctioned off 5 years later.

Recently, this Fiat employee's son has been trying to sell the paintings, which attracted the attention of the police.

However, the British couple those paintings belonged to apparently died without heirs, so the authorities will now have to determine the rightful owner.
