Who Says Truckers Don't Have Nice Legs?

I saw this while tooling down the highway this week; from the back it looked like a leg wearing a gladiator sandal, but when I got closer I saw that it was a pair of woman's legs with high heeled sandals. Not something you often see being transported. There was another piece on the truck with it, but I couldn't identify what it was - it looked like pieces of the same sculpture but I couldn't figure out how they worked with each other.

Update: One of my readers (thanks Dale!) discovered that the legs belong to
Marilyn Monroe; they were being shipped from New Jersey, where the sculpture was made by artist Seward Johnson, to Chicago, where she now stands on Michigan Avenue. In this photo, you can see the legs better from the side and the other piece, which I now figure was part of the skirt.

How cool is that?

Does that qualify as "junk in the trunk"?

Great shot, and I'm sure a great story if we were able to find out more about that leg and what it attaches to. I did see an 8 foot tall boot on American Pickers last night!

just curious, is your series on "owning your own truck" over at LOTR done?? it seems after all that chatter on the "mexican trucks" your informative articles kinda stopped..
they were a nice insight and a breath of fresh air from all the usual negative griping over there...
you had indicated more was on the way, especially about brokers,finding loads,payments, etc...I know many of us found your postings very interesting, and are wondering if more are in the future? thanks ed..
