Ice Cream Giant.

Ice Cream Giant: Parks & Recreation

Please note that while the giant is still there, the restaurant has been shut down and the ice cream man is in very bad shape. The ice cream is gone, the paint is coming off, the parking lot is blocked off and weeds have taken over around base. Not sure I would recommend a drive by on this one even though we still got a picture.

Ice Cream Man.

Giant Man With Tiny Ice Cream Cone

This is not a muffler man, as seen by the photo. It seems to be another one of the Uncle Sam hybrids, although this form may be the original as it resembles the one in New Castle, IN. Still a cool statue though.
