Statue of Liberty.

Junk Sculptures: Peterson's Garage

We stopped by and spoke with a lovely lady who told us most, almost all actually, of the sculptures have been sold. The Statue of Liberty and the bike are out front and we were told they will probably not sell them.

Statue of Liberty sculpture.

Robots and Metal People of Peterson's Garage

I call this "The Scrapture of Liberty." Great work of art. There are several other sculptures here that are great pieces of art, and I noticed several inside the building also.

Medieval Knight.

Peterson's Garage Sculptures

Peterson's Garage in Egg Harbor City is a nice place to stop on your way to Atlantic City, or other shore towns. It is on the White Horse Pike In Egg Harbor City, about 19 miles from A.C. Outside is a T-Rex sculpture, Pterodactyl sculpture, a ten foot tall medieval knight, and various tin men. In the garage's waiting room you will see car couches which were made by the resident sculptor/mechanic, Tom Peterson.
