But even more impressive is the roadside gorilla statue along US Route 7 between Leicester and Salisbury. Nicknamed Queen Connie, she was constructed in 1987 out of reinforced cement. Connies detail is superb, right down to her gorilla-vampire set of choppers.
But Connie doesnt just stand there. Her left arm is stretched to the sky and, like a muscular waiter with a tray, she balances an actual VW Bug. How did the Bug get up there? How come the whole thing doesnt topple over? Dont they have windstorms in this part of Vermont? Connie and her set of wheels hold multiple Green Mountain mysteries. And some top -notch photos, too. Pioneer Auto Sales, 2829 US Route 7, 802-247-4242.
