Wilson, NC
Dillon, SC
The Dinosaur statue in Wilson appears to be from a former Sinclair gas station. It now stands in front of the Imagination Station Science Museum. These photos were taken in 2004 in near darkness. The statue has been repainted yellow. [map]

The Dinosaur statue in Dillon is located at South of the Border. It appears to be a Sinclair copy with less detail. I have never seen one with the "spillover" surrounding his feet. I'm not sure how old this guy is. This photo is from 2004. The statue has since been painted yellow. South of the Border features and produces many fiberglass statues for tourists to pose with.

North Platte, NE
Sinclair Dinosaur
Grand Island, NE
Nebraska has more Sinclair dinosaurs than any other state. North Platte seems to have Sinclair stations every few blocks and nearly all of them have the dinosaur statues on top of their canopies or signs. I suspect that these statues are new and still being produced.

Salina, KS
Sinclair Dinosaurs [gone]

The Dinosaur in Salina is located at a Sinclair station. I have heard that there is or was another one in town near I-70. However, I believe there is only one other location and I don't believe it has a statue. [map]

These Dinosaurs in Altoona were located at the Sinclair Gold Truck Stop. These photos are from 2010. The statues were still there in 2011. By 2015, the station had become a Flying J and the statue were gone.

This Sinclair Dinosaur in Ferndale is installed at a Sinclair gas station. The station was a Shell station in 2012. This statue appeared here sometime after that. Apparently, his tail was damaged and had to be repaired. I don't know if his feet are submerged or if they were sheared off. [map]

Sinclair Dinosaur
Orderville, UT
This Dinosaur is located at the Rock Stop rock shop. This may be a tribute to the dinosaur statues which were here previously when the place was known as Dinosaurland. [map]

Sinclair dinosaur [gone]
Salt Lake City, UT
This Sinclair dinosaur was installed in front of Critters Pets & Supplies. It had been there since at least 2007. I don't know if there was a Sinclair gas station here previously or how long the dinosaur had been painted pink. These photos are from 2014. By 2015, the store and dinosaur were gone.
