Welcome to EL&M Auto Recycling & home of amazing auto part sculptures. They are everywhere! This is also a featured site on Roadside America. There is a diverse menagerie of characters, insects, flora & fauna and a whole cast of characters.

This waymark focuses on an angry, snarling guard dog located just in front of the entrance off to the left. The dog is made of chains, gears and shocks, oh my. His teeth are bared and his head is massive and eyes evil. The artist did a great job and at night the physical appearance of it would no doubt scare the cr@p out of anyone. The dog is black with white teeth and red menacing eyes. The artist has a sense of humor, like other sculptures he made, this one has some very conspicuous male junk (private male anatomy part). Yes, the junk has junk.

As for the rest of the sculpture garden, there is a fantastic collection of auto part sculptures located in the front. This is one of three junk yards mentioned on the Roadside Attractions website (which is how I discovered this), this one being the most impressive and prolific. The sculptures range from large to small, some are isolated and some are in groups. Most are people based but a few are insects, plants and of course this large angry dog which frightened me!

The folks running the counter gave me permission to walk around and snap photos. The people in the office wanted to make very clear that these sculptures are the furthest one can go. Anything further back is off-limits for insurance reasons and you are asked to not go back there. They also told me the person who made these used to work here but has been gone for a long time.
