Saw Thelma and Louise on 2/24/2021. They are right off I-95 at the fireworks and fruitcake souvenir shop.

Great find -- I think my dog has a crush on Thelma.

Papa Joe's Elephants

The elephants that you have described have the wrong names... they are Big Al and Lizzy! I have worked here for over 20 years. They used to wear sunglasses but they broke too often, so the owner removed them.

Located at the All American Fireworks store and Texaco gas station: a pink and a gray elephant.

Pink and Grey Elephants

These elephants look like they have been repainted. They are huge and make for a very interesting photo opportunity. They are outside of Papa Joe's Fireworks in Hardeeville, SC.
