Tree Grows Under Car -Lifts It Up

Junkyard workers in Japan noticed this seedling sprouting up under a car over 25 years ago. They let it grow and now it's lifted the whole car up in the air. Now they've created a shrine around it. Check out the video here.

Wow. That is unbelievable. Mother nature is something that cannot be taken for granted. A tree lifting a car. Usually its car lifts that are lifting cars of the ground.

At best, the tree would've grown around the car.

This has all the elements of a good urban legend though. Sounds/looks awesome, seems plausible with the most basic knowledge about how determined plants can appear to be to grow and how strong trees are, plus the little memory of trees that have grown around street signs and the like.

@minnesotastan: You're exactly right. Trees grow wider but they don't push up from the ground. Besides, the car doesn't look like it has been sitting in the tree for 25 years.
