It appears that Orange County has a seaside pirate motif based on this! The Pirate Tower, located Near Newport Beach, CA, is a Rapunzel-style tower towering over the sea. An actual pirate-themed residency now exists, which looks like it was designed by one of Disney’s Imagineers!
I’m yet to discover much about the owner, though just seeing his house provides many ideas. I learned that his name is Van and that he is a wonderful guy. I’d want to meet him eventually, whether it’s to snap a photo of him standing in front of his home!
There’s a house in Newport Beach with hundreds of fiberglass figurines, which is something like what you’d see in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean. Pirates are swarming all over the place and there’s even a Captain Jack Sparrow, much as they do in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean.
The pirates are engaged in a variety of pirate pastimes, such as swinging from the balconies and drinking a range of liquors. An Indian, a cowboy, a hunchback, some skeletons, the Statue of Liberty, several animals resting on the roof’s edge and perched on the corner of the roof is a colossal pinkish rooster! Yes, the International Fiberglass’s colossal pinkish rooster is red and pink. There is limited parking in the area, but you may walk up to many of the sculptures and take photographs with them.
International Fiberglass is most famous for creating the Muffler Men, towering roosters that stand guard on our roads, but they also created other fiberglass statues such as the widely recognized Sinclair Dinosaurs and the lesser-known, but oh-so-cool big rooster like this one in Newport Beach! These bright fowl, which are 8 feet tall, 3 feet wide, 5 1/2 feet long and weigh 100 pounds of fiberglass, were frequently seen standing on top of or outside of chicken stores all across the country.
Chicken restaurants were targeted for the enormous rooster, and they were marketed as “Something to Crow About This Gigantic Rooster. This massive sales booster may be seen for blocks around whether installed high on the roof, at ground level or wherever.” I’m thinking of the guy who keeps telling us that we’re being watched. I guess they never imagined one of them would grow to be the leader of a group of pirates, possibly surrounded by an entire crew!
Ryan Amador, a biologist, believes that there are approximately 30 of these enormous roosters in the Los Angeles area. There are four enormous roosters in Orange County, the most notable of which is one outside Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner and two all-white roosters at Anaheim Packing House!
