I am sorry sir, but you are mistaken. That is the rock they moved over 100 miles so all may see.

If they made a big plastic rock they would get better mpgs.

Will the big rock be a tourist attraction like the worlds biggest ball of string?

I bet the dogs will love it too!

How about carbon fiber? Light weight and high tech snazzy.

I also want to know, why? (As well as who, what, when, and where; some have already been answered, but we need the rest)

Levitated Mass | LACMA click on video.

Always good advice to level the frame before welding in cross members.

22 Dollies X 8 Tires each + 3 trucks X 10 tires each = 206 total.
Of coarse that is not counting all the escort and support cars and trucks.

they're moving it, because they can. The only way that would be cooler is if they coordinated a bunch of helicopters to move it.

They should have went to Can-Am and got a VW Touareg TDI setup properly to tow it.

Well it is easy to see why it had to be moved. It just looked so out of place in its natural environment.
