New Alexandria, Pennsylvania: Rural Space Shuttle

It's farmland, not a space port. A small replica of the Space Shuttle stands in the middle of nowhere.

501 Parkview Lane, New Alexandria, PA
Northeast of Greensburg. From Rt 22 (between the crossings of Rt 119 and Rt 819), head south on Hannastown Rd. for approx. 700 ft., then turn left on Kemp Road. Less than a half-mile later turn right on Tucker Road (on maps labeled Steels Rd/SR 1022). The shuttle is about a half-mile ahead on the left. Private property, along road.

Illustrations on the side of the rapidly-decaying Shuttle indicate that it was once used in a "Hot Rod" show of some sort.

At one time the Shuttle advertised the painted names of local businesses on its rear fenders. Maybe it had a previous life as a parade float.

Riding my motorcycle on country roads, I was surprised when I came upon this space shuttle in a field. Someone did quite a nice job on this.
