Yard Art with Trucks

Great place to stop, easy to find, not far off of Highway 70. Fountains coming out of the trucks. Some have flowers planted in them!

Yard Art with Trucks

One half-buried truck has a real tree with birdhouses growing out of its engine compartment, while a blue-tinted waterfall pours out of its driver's-side window. The other, a '46 Ford tow truck, pops a wheelie pulling a '48 Chevy out of a pond, which has blue-tinted water pouring out its back window and flowers growing in its engine compartment. I am the owner and builder.
