North Texas UFO


I came across this UFO somewhere outside Rockwall while driving around yesterday. I'm not sure what this originally was, but it reminds me of a 'UFO Hairport' barber shop in southeast Dallas near my mom's work that I recall as a kid. The barber shop was a permanent structure though, and this one is definitely 'mobile'.... this one could easily be re-modeled into a nice one bedroom efficiency apartment =)
**Just a quick update... this structure is a 'futuro house' and here is a short youtube clip with some other UFOs around the US and Europe...

Are you sure you don't mean Roswell & not Rockwall? I'm surprised this hasn't been turned into a burger bar, as it sort of looks like one.

I have taken many photos of that same UFO...it's been there as long as I can remember. It's been a car dealership, a home, and various other things throughout the years, but it's ALWAYS been an attention getter. I love it. It's so sad that it's come into such disrepair the past few years...no one is taking care of it, but there are no trespassing signs around it so no one can get in to find out who owns it or anything. Such a fun building. Great post; thanks for sharing! :)

Weird. I like kitchsy things like this though. They somehow add character to a place.

Reminds me of the Hamburgaler at McDonald's, minus the pole. Cool pic. Thanks for sharing it with us!
