1958 Fiat 600 on a pole


Atwood, Illinois (IL), US
This 1958 Fiat has been perched on this sign pole for over 40 years. It is an advertisement for Crist Termite and Pest Solutions. The car had been driven around to promote the business, and after its engine died, it was mounted on this sign pole.

In 2009, the car was taken down for a month to be restored.

These posts reminded me of this:

I also remember, about 10 years ago, seeing a rare 1970s Mazda on a pole at a scrapyard in Cookeville,Tn. I'll try to locate that but if you find it first, feel free to post it.

Oh, there are many more cars on poles out there that we can post. I rounded up what I could find on the site into a collection. I'm sure there are some that I am missing. I'll add that Mazda if its still visible in Street View.
