The pyramid is looking a bit worse for wear and tear. Maybe they sold the missing hubcaps.

To sell.... or to preserve? A mystery as old as the Pharaohs.

Hub Cap Tree

This attraction has been here for as long as I can remember. Anyone from south and west Jersey who travels to the shore and avoids the Atlantic City Expressway, knows of this site. It is 10 ft. from the road and almost impossible to miss.

I often take Rt. 73 south to the Black Horse Pike. This attraction can be found here, on a stretch of highway known as Rt. 322. It is directly on the left side of the road if you are traveling southwest toward Ocean CIty, Atlantic City or wherever. It has got to be at least or almost 30 feet high. It is a rectangular shaped pyramid (a square base) with an estimated 103 hub caps on each side which brings the total hub cap count to a total of 412! There is an associated business that goes with the tower, and yes, they sell hub caps.

Hub Cap Tree - Vague Recollections

There is a hub cap tree and I have seen it several times while traveling on family trips. I am almost positive it is on 322, but it is on the south/eastbound side so that would be on the right if heading to the shore.

I worked in a courthouse at one of the shore resorts in New Jersey during their summer rush. I was working one day as a court reporter. The judge asked this man where he lived. The man told him that he lived with his mom in Williamstown right by the hub cap tree. The entire courtroom laughed, and the judge had no idea what the man was talking about. The judge looked over at me and I told him that I not only knew of it, but had seen it many times.

Thanks for the corroborative testimony, Scout.

Hub Cap Tree

On the Black Horse Pike, on the left, going towards the shore, there's a giant Christmas tree looking thing made of all hub caps.
