Standing over Route 66 in Tulsa is a 21-foot tall space cowboy roadside attraction. The giant cowboy welcomes visitors to Buck Atom’s Cosmic Curios on 66. The giant statue was constructed by Mark Cline, while the rocket was crafted by local artist, Chris Wollard. It adds to the legacy of muffler men that dot the Route 66 landscape. The shop sells a variety of souvenirs, clothing, neon signs, and other memorabilia dedicated to the mystic of Route 66.
