Huge cowboy...

.... still buried up to his waist in a parking lot.

Half of a cowboy.

Big Concrete Cowboy, Upper Half

In keeping with the latest fashion trends, the Big Concrete Cowboy is currently attired in the earthy hues so popular in Albuquerque today. His western-style shirt has been updated to a stylish terra-cotta clay, and accessorized with a kerchief in contrasting turquoise. His ensemble is topped off with a terra-cotta Setson and turquoise hat band. But he is not concrete, unfortunately. He is made from some type of foam and coating, and is in need of attention if he is to be preserved.

I took the photo, in July 1992 of the Albuquerque concrete cowboy, mentioned on your site.

Concrete Cowboy

I see this just about every day. It is the top of a concrete cowboy, from the shoulders up, no body. It's not really a roadside attraction, but it has been as long as i can remember.

Arms crossed, wearing a soggy looking stetson, this blobby concrete statue is interesting, though not a Muffler Man.
