Upended Cadillac

The half-buried car is still there and looking great, but the mannequin has been replaced by an owl. Not as exciting, but still worth a short stop.

Mannequins have short lifespans outdoors. We wouldn't be surprised to see one back again, sitting on the car, when the weather behaves.

Pink Cadillac on End

In Clarksville there is a body shop that has a big PINK Cadillac on end in the ground. On top is a female mannequin seasonally dressed. December she is in a santa helper outfit, March she is in an IU cheerleader outfit, October she is Elvira, and when the whole road was flooded she was in scuba gear. They change it quite often, and it is always neat to see how she will be dressed. Clarksville Indiana is right across the Ohio river from Louisville, KY, where the largest baseball bat in the world is at the Hillarch and Bradley baseball factory.
