What's so special about a white car and a black car parked next to each other?

Oh please. It's not a flying car. It's obviously a car that was dropped by a flying saucer right before it hits the ground.

I'd like to meet the idiot who decided to test drive their top secret experimental flying vehicle across the street from a public parking lot. In BROAD DAYLIGHT no less.

The trees are barely giving off any shadow. This was taken at around high noon. If the other shadows were also that far away from the source, then, yes fine. Otherwise this "tent" would need to be 100 ft. high. Unless the tent is black, which is fine too, it's just odd that it is exactly car shaped and parked next to the other car.

There's a auto dealer near here that has an old car stuck up on a pole for advertising. Could be something like that.
