Car Bumper Chicken

We stopped there in June of 1999 and took this picture. It is on US 231. The chicken is constructed from Chrome Car Bumpers. Lots of, if not all VW.

Car Bumper Chicken

Just south of town, huge metal Chicken, and other sculptures by NYC artist [Larry Godwin] -- who has returned to his hometown -- and his brother's folk art shop. "The 3G's" sell paintings, and metal art along the hwy. Brundridge is a nice "antiquing" town also.
