The Big Chair Car Show

I live near a place that has a big chair. It’s really just that: A big dinning room chair or about 15 feet in height (that’s my estimate since I’m not going to waste time looking that up). Why is it there? I have no idea…it was donated and this area used to make furniture. But like a giant wooden and synthetic upholstery flame it attracts events to it. Once a month when it is warm enough there is a local car show in the vicinity and I happened to go to the last one. I never did take a picture of the big chair so you’ll have to take my word for all that.

      I should have known someone would find that link. It symbolizes the fact that there is almost no furniture industry left in Martinsville now I think.
      I love the Duster too. Almost got a very similar Dart in the 80s. However, sadly it did not work out.
