Big Cartoony Cowboy on a Pole

Two giant fiberglass cowboys on poles -- about 30 miles apart -- have been installed at Max Motors car lots in Butler and Nevada, Missouri. These are not Muffler Men and appear to be the comic-looking logo of the dealership. Both are visible from I-49. These look like the work of F.A.S.T.

F.A.S.T. Corp. is a Wisconsin company that has built many of America's roadside fiberglass giants.
