    Arch, the Pittsburgh Bridges Transformer

    I drove by this the other day and did a WTF double take. Pittsburgh has its very own Transformer...a bridgeformer called "Arch." He was apparently made for the city's 250 birthday celebration. You can read more about it HERE.

    To help put it into scale I'm about 15' 11" tall. lol

    I've lived in Pittsburgh for about 14 years, I move 3 years ago, and NOW they make something like this. Figures:rolleyes: 

    In any case, I think I know where that is, and I may go down to Pittsburgh to check this out (oh, and to do other stuff like visit friends, of course:D )

    How long will it be before some fake in a wheelchair parks themselves in front of it with a sign asking for money?

    Ahh, memories of living in Pittsburgh.
    Good times, good times.
