Stopped in to grab a Dunkin Donut and looked up, and yes, there it was! Bluesmobile on a Stick. Still very cool!

The Bluesmobile on a Stick in Joliet is not a 1974 Dodge Monaco. It is actually a 1974 Plymouth Fury. The two cars are very close, and many don't know the difference, but that's no Monaco!

Probably whoever stuck it up there figured it was similar enough to pass.

Deterioration by design! The replica of the "Blues Brothers" movie car, a 1974 Dodge Monaco police prowler, is tilted at a rakish angle for better photos.
