The Coors Light logo has been painted over. There are a few scuffs on the new paint job, but it looks pretty good.

Coors Light Cow.

Big Cow

The Big Cow sits on top of The Brookfield Restaurant in Brookfield Illinois. Not sure how long he's been there -- at least 35 years. He was there when my parents were kids. My dad says they took him down in the early '80s, but everyone complained and they put him back where he belongs.

The Coors Light sticker is somewhat new.
