Auto Parts Sculpture

Last October, we spotted a [Car Parts sculpture]. He is located in "downtown" Raceland, LA, off LA 182. Hard not to miss.

[John Murphey, 03/10/2004]

He's made of old mufflers and painted to resemble a goofy cap-wearing mechanic in blue overalls. He stands on the roof of an auto repair shop, his upright exhaust pipe arm raised in friendly greeting.
