Gorilla Holding a VW Beetle

Recommendation by Lemi

Some quirky stopovers have neither rhyme nor reason; but after hours on the road, it’s worth a few giggles and playful pics! Gorilla Holding a VW Beetle was built as a promotional statue for a local car dealership. The Volkswagen Beetle that is held precariously 19-feet overhead is the real thing! Sit in the gorilla’s outstretched hand like so many others have before. You’ll be surprised at how popular it is. The statue was designed as a goof between the owner and a local artist but has struck a chord with passing roadsters. The gorilla is named “Queen Connie,” so remember to treat her like a lady while you sit on her palm (be careful, you could fall)! You’ll encounter many profound discoveries, but Queen Connie is here to remind us that roadside attractions and the newfound mobility that Americans gained with cars was a chance at unabashed fun!
