Levitating Mack Truck:
This Mack Truck really is hovering above the asphalt. As I walked by, four sturdy extended hydraulic legs were holding the body of the truck above the pavement, as a crane atop the cabin was reaching high up on the facade of an adjacent office building. I removed the hydraulic legs and the crane in Photoshop. What's left is a 25 ton truck appearing to be weightless. 
I think this is a head-turning sight, given that the Mac Truck is an iconic reference in American slang... “as big as a Mac Truck”... huge, massive, heavy... anything but “light as a feather.”
