7 foot IH bear

Postby Ken (48 Cub) » Mon Aug 17, 2015 1:28 pm

This past Saturday night after dinner we were strolling down the street and came upon a place that was full of stuff...road signs, gas pumps, etc. Too bad it was closed. Looked like a great place to explore :)

While I was looking through the gate I saw a 7 foot tall bear with IH on his front:

IH bear.


There where 2 smaller bears, between 3 & 4 feet tall holding a small tractor. A three wheeler not a Cub.

These were cast of some kind of metal. They were not plastic. Anybody ever seen these before?

Probably a good thing they were closed, you would be needing your trailer. :lol:

Would have given us something to talk about if you got 'em and brought 'em along to Cubarama.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I'm not sure if the guy even sells his stuff...the place was never open at the time I was around (weekend evenings for super) :)
