Judging by the fork lift in the background.

What's special about the fork lift?

Just curious.

Central power unit for a transformer! Exactly the one for an Autobot called Optimus Prime.

No?

Definitely a liquid fuel rocket engine - couldn't say exactly which variety without cheating, but Lyn's answer sounded like a good call.

Yep, but I bet the Cavalier would gain enough altitude to clear the dumpster walls.

It looks like the rocket engine that spilled rocket fuel and destroyed the environment around the Santa Susana Rocketdyne plant in Simi Valley. But that's okay, since NASA is paying for the site cleanup - should only take another 20 years, based on their current success. The cancer rate in the area is very high in some areas of Simi Valley and the surrounding area. I know too many people out there who have (had) cancer. The site also had a nuclear meltdown in the late 50's and all sorts of "goodies" have leaked/blown up/spilled/burned at the site.

The clean up site is a mess! http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-20140613-column.html

I believe it's the SSME (Space Shuttle Main Engine), correct? Look at the number of rings and the curved vertical pipe between the two others.

Now that we know what it is, let's see if it works. Yea, if it works just think of the possibilities! Ok, hook up the fuel line here. Be careful, could be high pressure. The igniter uses 24 volts, these two batteries ought to do. So OK, ready, don't need no start switch, I'll just open the fuel valve and touch these two wires together... Say what? No no, it's bolted down, can't go anywhere. Well here goes.....

Exactly - not nearly, maybe or possibly - but exactly - as requested.

It's Emperor Dalek's new 'immobility unit' (since the Emperor Dalek's mobility unit is always too big and impressive to actually, y'know, MOVE) under construction.

The dome with the eyestalk and the gigantic plunger are on backorder.

Having seen the entire Shuttle assembly, I have to say one of the 3 main engines of the Shuttle.
