A ROADSIDE WONDER:a fabulous surprise from the road

One of the greatest thrills of taking back roads is when we happen upon something interesting and unusual completely by accident! We call these finds “roadside wonders.” They are not historically significant or tourist destinations. Sometimes, they are colorful, at times ugly, kitsch, and even hilarious. We love sharing some of our favorites with you!

 

We stopped at a drugstore while driving through Sylva, North Carolina and look at the colorful “roadside wonder” we found!

 

Hiding on a side street was CT Auto Service, Inc., a three-generation business that offers car repairs, towing and more. When we stopped, Anthony told us that his grandfather began covering the building with license plates about 15 years ago. Anthony and his dad finished the decorating project recently. 

 

Grandson, Anthony, was kind enough to show us around!

 

I cannot emphasize how colorful and interesting this building is!  Pictures do not do this building justice!
