Big Freakin’ Turtle

On our way to the International Peace Garden, we stopped at a really cool road side oddity – the world’s largest hubcap turtle by George Gottbreght.

Built in 1982 to promote his store next door Dale’s Thrifty Barn, the turtle is made up of 2,000 hub caps welded together and its head which reportedly weighs over 2,000 pounds is built on a spring that allows it bounce up and down in the affirmative.

Here are a few photos.
