Many of you who saw the first Wayne's World movie may have the misconception that this sculpture is located in Aurora, Illinois. However, this infamous sculpture of an 8 car pileup is really located at the Cermak Plaza in Berwyn. People aren't the only ones that enjoy public art, birds do as well! I had some tighter cropped photos of this thing where it looked like cars were stacked in space that were composed better, however the closer you get, the more you could see how much those birds have crapped all over the sculpture and I felt it wasn't very flattering, heh.

Oh, this is awesome! (I don't remember it from Wayne's World though?)

A closer crop could be interesting as well precisely *because* it would be unflattering...just a thought.
