Big Possum

When we went to go see it, they had moved it inside.

The possum is only displayed outdoors during business hours: M-F 8-5.

Big Possum

If you're on a sprayfoam sculpture safari, the possum lives indoors when the auto-body shop is closed. Also, the streets surrounding Possum are a little confusing mush of one way streets. But the possum is horrifyingly worth it.

Possums.

Big Possum

Outside of Possum Auto Body & Paint. There are also two smaller possums hanging from a tree. One has tire tread marks across him. And then there is one more smaller one hanging on a streetlight and a big one at the entrance. They are very well done.
