Wacky Cars and Planes on Poles

There is a collection of wacky sculptures on poles next to the G.I. Body Shop in Grand Island. These are cartoon cars and airplanes, visible from the street.

[Patrick Southam, 05/24/2016]

The sculptures, with names such as Hell on Wheels (with a devil's tail) and the Model T Shrekmobile, were built from 2009 to 2012 by Fred Schritt, who owns the body shop next door.
