USA Titan Fireworks Rocket

Field review by the editors.

Pioneer, Tennessee

This ballistic billboard does not quite equal the size of its nuclear namesake, but it is big enough to compare favorably in size to a German V-2. It lures explosive-minded drivers off of I-75 to a fireworks store.

Standing next to it, awaiting tourist shutterbugs, are several undersized pink elephants, a few disturbing 2-D clowns painted on plywood, and an apparently abandoned ferris wheel that may have been busier in more frolicsome times.

In 2014, a fire destroyed the business building, but the rocket, Ferris wheel and castle remain.
