The Chickenmobile is parked in front of the gas station and restaurant now, and part of it is supported by concrete blocks. While no longer mobile and perhaps a bit faded, a visit is still worth the effort if you are a fan of chicken cars!

The chicken car is still there. If you have time, stop and eat. The place is a dump but the chicken is pretty damn good!

Passing by exit 170 off I-44, we decided to pull off and check just in case the Chicken Car might be in the area. We were in luck! The car was parked in the parking lot with a flat tire. Great for us, as we got to take pictures. Hopefully they'll have the car back up and running soon. It's just too cool to let it sit!
