Mr. Cost Plus [gone]
Calhoun, GA
Mr. Cost Plus was originally installed on the roof of Huebner Chevrolet in Carrollton, OH. Mr. Cost Plus was a spokesman on the company's TV commercials. The 21 foot tall statue was brought here in 1992 and placed high on top of a pole at Service Chevrolet in Calhoun. In 2007, when these photos were taken, the statue's chest still read "Mr. Cost Plus" but his backside had been updated to read "Mr. Service". In 2009, the statue fell and his head was stolen. The dealership had been closed since 2008. In 2009, the statue was destroyed in a windstorm. The head reappeared and was displayed on top of a shed in Resaca, GA for awhile but it's disappeared again. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
