Uniroyal Gal

Pearsonville, California

Her name comes from a brand of automobile tire so I assume she was used for advertising purposes at a tire dealership long ago.  From the hairstyle one would think the 60's.

If you Google her name then "images" you can see many more of these fiberglass ladies 
all across the country, most in much better condition.  Worth a look.
 Inquiring minds will want to know, yes, she is wearing red panties.

Lucy Pearson once lived here in Pearsonville, pop.17 although I saw no one but it was very early in the morning too.  She was known as the Hubcap Lady for her collection of around 80,000 hubcaps.  Lucy as since passed on and there wasn't a hubcap in sight but it's claim to fame still stands on the water tank nearby.  I waited too long to see this dazzling attraction so it seems.

Now what where on earth could one stash away 80,000 hubcaps?


  1. I had to look up the word hucap, never heard of it. A remarkable way to advertise for it with this lady along the road.

  2. Had to ask what happened to the hubcaps

  3. I think the hubcaps are stowed away inside the water tank..... or perhaps Lucy was buried with them?
