A Big Bob’s Big Boy
We were always on the lookout for unrestored fiberglass Bob’s Big Boy statues when we where in the restoration business. So when we were offered one at a good price about seven years ago, we said “Sure, we’ll take it”. But when the truck showed up with the delivery, it was a bit of a surprise. It seems the guy who was working for me at the time didn’t think to ask how big it was when buying it. In all fairness to him, we did not know there was a larger version of good old Bob. The two we had restored to that point were about eight feet tall, but this one was north of fourteen feet. He was so big I think they had to cut off the hamburger to ship him. In any case, we never restored him. It was just too much work. Someone ended up buying him unrestored and I am sure he is still out there smiling away somewhere.
This item is not for sale. We show restored items in this blog to encourage discussion, prompt questions and further the hobby of collecting and restoration. We also enjoy sharing the photos of the many items we have restored over the years.
