Large Cougar Statue

Dark, dreary day, but we went and took some pictures. The cougar is still sitting on top of the building, and in good shape.

Large Cougar Statue

A giant cougar sits on the roof of Alford Motors, a car dealership. It was the icon of the Lincoln-Mercury car company, and originally sat on the roof of Stillpass Lincoln-Mercury, put there in 1968. It was removed in 1988, and now sits down the road from the Giant Indian of Cincinnati, another Roadside America landmark.

Came across this one without trying when I stopped for gas. This is similar to the Mercury Cougar in Indianapolis. It's located across from Wither's Automotive Imports.
