After seeing one of these 3 D Dino's in a collection in Tenn a few years ago I knew that we needed one in the Lakeside Storage Museum. After years of hunting and travels I finally got my wish and we stood this up where the SOC sign had previously been located. The sign came from Iowa and the Dino from Texas. The Dino is 9' long. I love it!
Dino's at Lakeside Storage have started reproducing like mice and now they're everywhere you look! I see little kids riding on them so they must be tame? Maybe I'll give it a try myself if I can get up the guts to get on one without a saddle. Two years ago when I thought I could ride a horse bareback that our son was looking at buying I wound up with a broken pelvis out of the rodeo he put me through so I'm more careful nowadays! No smarter, but more careful!
Try and imagine seeing this 11' high Pegasus strapped on the back of my car trailer going down the highway at 60 mph with the wings flapping in the wind! We had a long 1700 mi trip to Texas to get this beauty but it was worth it! Yes we saw a lot of jaws drop as we drove down the road! It is a pretty cool addition out in front of the new Lakeside Storage annex in Provo Ut. Too tall to get under some gas station canopies and never made it under the Motel entrances. More exciting stories to tell.
1942 HALF TRACK
This 1942 White half Track was used in The European assault during WWII with the American armored division. It originally weighed about 34,000 lbs and was armed with a 50 cal and two 30 cal machine guns. They were built of 1/4" armor plate and designed to travel at up to 50 mph. We found this in Mt Pleasant Utah. After the war these could be purchased from the government very inexpensively and were often used by farmers to pull plows etc. obviously they stripped off the heavy armament for farm use.
