Life in the fast lane! These lovely ladies were on display in April when we drove through Texas. What a funny sight in the middle of nowhere.

Convertible Mannequins. Bikini clad mannequins in a 1972 green Cadillac convertible. This attraction isn't in Vernon per se. It's actually a few miles east of Oklaunion, Texas on the north side of U.S. highway 287. It's typically displayed on holiday weekends (assuming good weather).
