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 once lured explosive-minded drivers off of I-75 to a fireworks store, along with several undersized pink elephants, a few disturbing 2-D clowns painted on plywood, a small castle, and an apparently abandoned ferris wheel that may have been busier in more frolicsome times.

In 2014 a fire -- remember that this was a fireworks business -- destroyed the store and everything that wasn't metal. The rocket, Ferris wheel, and castle remain, although they are charred and rusting into hulks.
