Weathervane Wednesday ~ Seen on the Turnpike

Every Wednesday for more than three years I've been posting photographs of weather vanes located in or near the Nutfield area (the former name for the land where Londonderry, Derry and Windham, New Hampshire are now located). Most are historically interesting or just whimsical and fun weather vanes. Today's weather vane can be found in along a famous New England roadway. Have fun guessing where you may have seen this weather vane.

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.
