Roadside Men Northern California

Sightings have been made throughout the land! Big men are on the loose!

Remember the good ol' fiberglass behemoths that used to line the roadside? From golf men at mini golf courses to lumberjacks outside hardware stores, these huge roadside men once were a major part of the American landscape.

Check out "Babe" at Babe's Muffler shop in San Jose, California. Not sure if he's really a babe, but he stands ready to welcome visitors right next to the road.

Last, but certainly not least, of the Californian roadside men is June, the Rodeo Man. (Now if the rodeo was in April, would we name him April?) Standing right off a highway in Livermore, June and his big ol' hat is a can't miss sighting. If you're in the area and it's June, say hello.

In the Northern California town of Hayward, visit the Hayward Man in front of a tire shop. Or visit the McDonald's down the street if you don't like this guy.

This big man stands at the Tyre Treds off the main highway in town.
