Long Description:
The 3D Roadside Attraction promoting Jackson Tire is available to view Dawn to Dusk from the public footpath alongside the business. The Sign asks the question, NEED TIRES ? & features a woman changing a tyre, with her husband looking on with a grin. The 3D sign was designed by artist Lowell Davis.

The business is located alongside Route 66, Carthage, Missouri.

Another one of Lowell's weird artworks, makes it to the Roadside America Web Site. The other promotional artwork 'Crapduster' is just down the road, at a truck stop.

"It ain't no wonder his wives left him." Graffiti added by unknown person after the artwork was erected.

"An old rusty pick-up truck is making its comeback as a 3-D billboard for a tire shop. Hoisted in the air a man sits in his rusty ole' pick-up truck as his wife changes the tire." Text Source: (visit link)
