Our last giant chicken (for now) is located in Hesperia! Mainstream Collectors actually makes and restores giant chickens! The business has been around over 20 years selling fiberglass animals ranging from cows to pigs and, of course, giant roosters! They also have Bob's Big Boy knock offs called Boom-a-Rang Boy on their website. Here's to more giant fiberglass status being made!

New Year’s Eve celebration would have been fun here tonight! Good pizza, styrofoam hats, paper mustaches, player piano. Who needs anything else? A shame the Harrisburg, PA location closed like 40 years ago. The small regional chain had locations in PA, DE and MD. Only one remains: in Johnstown, PA. My plan for 2018 is to visit it, maybe on my birthday. Pizza party! You’re all invited. (First image is original framed decor I found from one of the locations and hangs in my office. 2nd pic is photo from @pennlive article by Sue Gleiter.)

Remember the #Canada #mufflerman we rescued from Edmonton last month? His journey is not over, he is headed to Natural Bridge VA and Mark Cline! #americangiants #roadtrip #mufflermen #vintageroadside #roadsideamerica #restoration #markcline
The #texacobigfriend, what I consider to be the holy grail of #mufflermen. How is it that 300 of these 26ft Giants were made in 1966 and only 5 survive today? Their program was so short lived I only know of 8 pictures of them taken in the 1960s. #americangiants #mufflerman #roadsideamerica #fiberglassgiants #americana #petroliana #texacoman #texaco #vintageroadside #internationalfiberglass

I love it when brave women follow their dreams… I especially love it when that dream is to create something uniquely awesome for the city I live in… If you haven’t stopped by @wheatbrothersfarms vintage roadside stand yet, you’re missing out! She’s only open this week Thursday-Saturday 10-2 and then she’ll be closing for the winter.

Where “food attains perfection.” And, AND, it’s “scientifically air-conditioned for your comfort.” How can we resist all of that? We can’t. The Bellevue Diner in Montgomeryville, #Pennsylvania on U.S. Highways 202 and 309 (now State Route 309). Highway 202 was a 1934 Highway that traveled 8 states from Bangor, Maine to Delaware and Highway 309 was one of the original 1926 Highways and only traveled through Pennsylvania. I realize I should have purchased this card because it’s a cool diner, but I totally bought it because it was a cool diner on 2 U.S. Highways. 2 THREE-DIGIT U.S. highways. 😊👍 I got it bad for all of these highways and the life along them....I love them so much....

This place looks like it was a good idea for a lunch break. The King’s Derby Restaurant and Lounge on U.S. Highways 6 and 40. At the base of the “finest ski courses” in the west. #IdahoSprings #Colorado. That #Thunderbird has my name on it. 😉

This giant pinkish rooster is one of many giant roosters in California, just painted all pink and red.  He's hanging out on the corner of this house in Newport Beach, along with an entire ship's worth of pirates, a Native American, several skeletons, Jack Sparrow, a cowboy, a hunchback, and even the Statue of Liberty!

While we're in Mentone . . . Mentone just isn't home to a giant rooster, but also a Muffler Man! Located all on the same property, along with various signs, bottles, and other "decorations", the area proclaims itself the Mentone Beach or the Republic of Mentone. There are even several motors for boats hanging on the fence in front of the Muffler Man. The Muffler Man here is a Paul Bunyan style Muffler Man. When he was acquired by the current owner in 1983, he was missing his right arm, forcing his owner to create it out of a mold from his left arm.

This hat wearing, gun toting, giant chicken stands on the north side of Main Street in Lockeford and use to be the Sheriff of Pollardville, a now closed touristy ghost town once near Stockton. It stands in the private yard of Lisa Pollard, the daughter of the owners of Pollardville. Luckily it can easily be seen from the street and it is in good condition.

I just want to thank everyone for all the great feedback we have received on restoring our Half Wit. I think we are going to go with the majority vote on this one but include pictures at the exhibit of how he appeared at the Wagon Wheel. It was a tough call and I couldn't make up my mind which is why I turned to all of you for help. I do like the idea of him going back to original because there are no originals left that still show this paint scheme or have a golf club, so he will be one of a kind! I know of at least 8 Half Wits that were either red or yellow golf club holding versions, they were mostly sold in Ohio and New England. This is the Half Wit that used to stand at the lake of the Ozarks with the original red shirt yellow suspender paint colors and patches on his legs. We will restore him to look very much like this one although ours has the standard arm configuration and will hold a much larger golf club. The results of all the instagram and facebook votes are on the second picture in percentages #americangiants #mufflermen #mufflerman #roadsideamerica #roadsideattraction #vintageroadside #halfwitmufflerman #internationalfiberglass #lakeoftheozarks

I'm turning to all of you on instagram for some much needed advice. A few days ago I posted a picture of our restoration shop and pile of giants outside, including our half wit. He is now in Hayward, CA getting a full restoration and a pair of legs. I can't give you all the info yet on his future location but he will be on public display with lots of historical information on him and other Muffler Men. The question is, what paint job should we go with? He was originally painted with patches on his legs and a red shirt with yellow suspenders. He stood at a mini golf course in Ohio and held a giant golf club. Years later he lost his legs and ended up at the Wagon Wheel Bar in Madison, OH with a new paint job, red shirt, blue collar and blue hat with WW (for wagon wheel) on his hat and the name Horny Warny . The question is, should we restore him to original with the golf club or to the way he appeared at the Wagon Wheel? I have included extra pictures of what he looks like original and at the wagon wheel to help you decide. The miniature sculpture by @sculptureisland is a good representation of what his paint job would be if we kept him the way he is. Very interested in feedback on this one! #americangiants #mufflermen #mufflerman #roadsideamerica #roadsideattraction #vintageroadside #halfwitmufflerman #internationalfiberglass #wagonwheel #madisonoh #madisonohio

Although it is closed for the season, it was still a “treat” driving by @crabbs_tropical_treat today. What an amazing looking, well kept drive-in! Just a few miles outside Hanover, PA., it’s a real step back in time. So reminded me of #AmericanGraffiti and #HappyDays. Some notable features were a beautiful blacktop parking lot, an original 50’s canopy for parking under and an old school two way radio ordering system. And don’t get me started on their rooftop neon sign. Fabulous! I don’t dare compare it to a Sonic, but this true roadside oasis is what Sonic aspires to be. I can’t wait for March 14th when it reopens. Hopefully some of my old cars can make the 56 mile trek from Duncannon.

B &W challenge day 6: “The Road to Oatman, AZ”. One of the oldest sections of #road on #route66 #vintageroadside #motheroad #americaatitsbest
2nd stop on the muffler man trip was in Aline #oklahoma It was amazing to see a classic Bunyan just out in the middle of nowhere. This guy was ordered in the mid 60s from #internationalfiberglass for a lumber company in #enidoklahoma He stood on main street next to a bridge still famous for taking the tops off of semi's. He was taken down and purchased by Buds salvage in Aline in 1974. He was set up on this hillside amidst all the junk cars and has been here now for 43 years. He is also one of the few muffler men to still be holding an original axe. It is such an awesome place to take pictures because the background scenery is so desolate. #americangiants #mufflermen #mufflerman #roadsideattraction #roadsideamerica #americana #vintageroadside #roadsideattractions #roadtrip #oaklahoma

Home of the Movie Stars. 
When it opened in 1936, the El Rancho boasted superior service and accommodations for roughing it in comfort. From Errol Flynn to Katherine Hepburn to Ronald Reagan to Kirk Douglas and Doris Day, many stars stayed here while filming Westerns near by.
