If you are in to old cars and/or whimsical art, this is a must see! I wouldn't go completely out of my way to visit but if you are in the area, or passing through on the I, you have to check it out!

This really is a unique place. This man is a genius for thinking up ways to use vehicles, and vehicle parts to make art in his own front yard. Stop by, and enjoy his designs, without even leaving your vehicle.

People call this “the place with the cars in the yard” but it is much more than cars. There is a rocket, a robot and you never know what else might be there. It is 2.5 Miles west of Peach Street on Hershey Road. If...More

Hi James, thanks for your review. :) Just an update.. none of our sculptures are for sale, as they're just for people to admire. Thanks for enjoying the art!

Worth a stop and look - we've enjoyed these for many years. Extra decorating at Christmas, too! Many of these are a bunch of years old, but they are adding new ones!

Fun and creative art, our small daughter enjoyed looking at them. Both my husband and I agreed that it was worth the stop. If there was a small donations box we would have gladly out something in it.

I would say not really. If you're able to push the wheelchair over uneven grass you could do it. Either way, great to look from the car!
