Dennis Hayes sits in his new sign, a restored Ford Galaxie stock car, as it is hoisted into place on pillars 10 feet off the ground at his business, Vintage Wrench, west of Edgewood on Indiana 32 on Thursday. There is no engine or transmission but it still weighs 3000 pounds due to a steel plate attached to the bottom of the car and welded to the posts supporting it. Hayes knows exactly how much it weighs because the state needed to calculate wind shear for the sign before they would approve it.
