    Default Perth's Hovering Car

    I think this is some kind of pergola or temporary awning. What do you fink?

    I think I can clearly see metal legs at each corner of this thing,
    and I don't see the clouds of dust that a hovering vehicle would
    have to kick up if it were hovering over sand or dry earth.


    Photo from the age.

    It's clearly not high off the ground, or else the shadow would be
    farther away from it, especially given the angle of the sun.
    But how do you just set up a portable awning? Don't you need
    a permit?

    OK smart arse!!

    I just thought it'd be easier to ask the people who were already discussing it. If I'd realised what a huge hassle it was to answer my question I wouldn't have bothered.

    Trust SV to come up with the obvious, logical explanation.

    Tiara, an awning is a canvas thing like a tent that they install over doorways or windows. They can be rolled up or taken down, not permanent.
    Keep passing the open windows.

    It could easily be some small balloon or something made in the form of a car and suspended(suspiciously near a lot of cars nearby) if you have ever seen those hot air balloon fests they have in places like Albuquerque they come in ALL shapes and sizes...why not have a small car shaped one with some lighter than air filling and a few tethers to get attention????
