Norwich, CT
Giant cowboys were a less common variation created by International Fiberglass. The moved to this shopping center around the 1980s. He stands between EbLens and Harbor Freight. In the 1960s, he was located across town. He holds a flag in the style of the Cheshire, CT man mentioned above, perhaps to get around zoning laws as well.

Cowboy & Long Horn Steer
Waukon, IA
This Cowboy and Long Horn Steer are installed in front of Village Farm & Home. They have been here since at least 1997. The steer statue was produced by Sculptured Advertising of Sparta, WI. It is believed that the cowboy came from Wild Bill's in Fayette, IA. I don't know where the steer came from. However, there is an identical statue in Panama City Beach, FL. Since more than one was produced for that restaurant, it's possible that this statue in Waukon may have come from Florida.

The cowboy has a very rare, original belt. There are only about a half dozen statues that have these. Most of the statues have either the four buttons at the top of their pants or painted on belts. There is a plaque near the cowboy's feet giving credit to Creative Display. It's possible but unlikely that that company made a mold from one of the International Fiberglass statues and then produced a copy. It's more likely that Creative Display may have restored the statue at some point. [map]

Cowboy [gone]
Havre de Grace, MD
This Cowboy statue was originally installed in the 1960s on the roof of a Phillips 66 gas station (photo top left). The gas station now houses Lynch's Super Service. In 1991 during the Gulf War, the statue was repainted with camouflage fatigues. Later, his cowboy hat which was also painted in camouflage was removed because of cracks. It was reportedly put in storage. In 2015, Lynch's Super Service closed. The property was put up for sale. The statue was removed and moved to the owner's home. In 2017, it was sold and will eventually be displayed at Retro Ghost Town in Frederick, MD. For more, see this website.

Cowboy [gone]
Valley Park, MO
Joliet, MT (now Pocatello, ID)
This Cowboy statue in Valley Park stood above Croft Auto Repair & Trailer Sales when this photo was taken in 2005. He was previously located at a used car lot in Belleville, IL. He was moved here and restored in the late 1990s. Around 2009, the statue was knocked down in a windstorm and seriously damaged. The owners planned to restore him. However, as of 2011, he was still in pieces. In 2016, he was acquired by Joel Baker who will restore him as a Phillips 66 Cowboy. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.

This Cowboy statue in Joliet was located at Fort Rockvale Casino when these photos were taken in 2006. It is believed that this statue was originally located in Nampa, ID at a gas station/car wash. In the late 1990s or early 2000s, it was then moved to Bridger, MT. In 2003, it was moved to the casino. The rifle might be one of the original International Fiberglass accessories. In 2016, the statue was sold to the Museum of Clean in Pocatello, ID. The statue was restored as the World's Largest Janitor. it is displayed inside the museum. For more, see this website.

Woodstown, NJ
This Cowboy is installed at the Cowtown Rodeo arena and farmers market. It is believed that this statue was originally installed around 1967 at Sid Broughton Dodge in Wilmington, DE. At the dealership, the statue was known as "Marshall Sid", the dealership's mascot. This cowboy statue has a different head from the standard Cowboy models. International Fiberglass made a custom head modeled after Sid Broughton. The hat, belt, and gun were International Fiberglass stock accessories. These long sleeves also appear to have been custom. The statue was sold at an auction in 1975 and moved to its current location. [map]
