Spotting a car on a cross-beam of an otherwise faithful landmark replica can make your whole day.

Mini St. Louis Gateway Arch

The arch is still there, but is looking pretty shabby and rusty! It's in dire need of a paint job, not to mention the car's condition!

There is a [used auto parts] place with a miniature "St. Louis Arch" and in the middle, near the top of the arch, is a full size (Buick) car in mid-air.

The car is balanced on a cross-beam between the two legs of the replica arch.
