Tire Guy.

Big Tire Guy

We were sailing down the road at double nickles and we saw this guy. Hit the Jake and the brakes and pulled over just to get a picture. A 20' guy made out of old tires. Heck, he was even strung with Christmas lights so you could see him at night. It was out in front of a tire shop. I fully support this guy's use of old tires. I'd rather see them used for art than a tire dump that you can see from space.
