Wisconsin Road Trip IV


bink and I took a side trip to Sparta, Wisconsin, to visit the F.A.S.T. Corporation = Fiberglass Animals, Shapes & Trademarks.



Walking through their field of fiberglass molds, we met most of the Giant Roadside Attractions we've ever seen.





THIS IS SPARTA! But some figures look like casts from Pompeii.


FAST also makes water park slides.
We chatted with Mike, the production manager, and he told us he wishes the war in the Middle East would stop, because he's expecting a ton of orders from his pre-war customers: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and Afghanistan were all big spenders in Entertainment Parks...

Something must be done.
RELEASE THE KRAKEN!

Friendly post-apocalypse.

Yes! Unless they melt in an atomic blast, these fiberglass structures will probably never decay...

I want to plant something in the legs-one. Ferns, maybe.

I love all these images, and from your previous days too. I'd love to see a movie of these objects.

Makes me want take off and travel!
