Do you know the location of weather vane #172? Scroll down to see the answer....
Today's weather vane was seen on the Massachusetts Turnpike, at the eastbound Lee rest area, located 10.3 miles from the New York border. The tourist information center, which was closed and appeared to have been shuttered for a long time, has a cupola with this very interesting weather vane. It is a highly detailed, three dimensional antique automobile. The Massachusetts Turnpike dates from 1948 when the first plans were laid out, and construction began in 1955 on the Turnpike, but this little automobile seems to represent an even earlier era.
