This Uniroyal Girl is similar to the Roadside Men that dot the country. This rather fashionable figure features a real bob of a doo and looks like she's doing a step to the Lovin' Spoonful's Could It Be Magic. Check out more here at Roadside Peek's Roadside Men Midwest.

Water Tower

Here is the pumpkin painted water tower in Circleville, OH. Every autumn for almost 100 years they have held a pumpkin festival here called "The Pumpkin Show" so why not paint the water tower as a gigantic pumpkin, complete with stem? See this water tower and more at where else but Roadside Peek's Roadside Water Towers Midwest. 03-07

Here are a couple of photos of the Warshawsky Muffler shop in Rockford, IL. This muffler shop features a friendly looking roadside guy greeting customers as they come up to the shop. Check out this roadside art at Roadside Peek's Roadside Art Midwest.
