Tundra hauling the Space Shuttle Endeavor

this might be a repost but i didnt see it on the first page or two of the forums.

awesome time lapse of the space shuttle being moved from LAX to the museum. around 1:05 you'll see a bone stock Tundra hauling the shuttle over the overpass (the articulating truck was prob too heavy to go over along with the shuttle).

Not sure if that exact time lapse view has been posted, but there are several threads on the Tundra/Endeavor.

So basically the Tundra only towed it for like a block? I mostly saw it being moved on that blue contraption thingy.

The self-powered mover was too heavy to cross the bridge over I-405.
It was moved to a lighter trailer and the Tundra pulled it across the bridge.

Just saw the commercial tonight... pretty cool, if short (it was only a 15 or maybe 30 second spot).
