Boondocks truckstop in central Iowa on I 35 had a weather vane made out of an Allis Chalmers tractor, along with a VW bug flower planter, been years since I've been out that way. As for trucks made into elevated billboards, I saw quite a few traveling across the country.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.

There is a whole tractor/trailer rig standing up in Oklahoma on I35 just South of the OK/Kansas state line.

    A helicopter weathervane beside trans Canada highway near swift current, sask. The guy who did it doesn’t fly and has no big interest in helicopters. Just did it because he could. To much money.

Jeff that's really neat. Thanks for posting. About fifty miles south of me a gentlemen has a 40's B John Deere with his mail box on it along the highway. If you are ever going south on I-29 between St Joe and KC there is a full sized semi on a couple of poles by a truck stop.
On I-95 south of Benson, NC there's an 18 wheeler with a box van upside down on a billboard advertising a Recovery / Towing Business.

Wudman, have you ever checked out Bob Cage’sfield full of industrial art pieces?  Worth a look for sure. Just east of South Boston on Cage rd just off 360 so not far from you.  

(Was going to link, but it’s on flickr.  Search Bob Cage Sculpture Farm)

I had to look that up.  I have seen his piece that is sitting on 360, but I have never turned down that lane.  I go through that area regularly, so I'll check it out next trip.  Thanks for the heads up.
