Bubblehead Statues, Gene Langan VW

A pair of unique statues at Gene Langan Volkswagen in Glastonbury, CT. In the '60s, VW had a figure similar to the one on the right (sans gloves and sneakers) that they used in advertising. It was sometimes referred to as Mr. Bubblehead. The female and male representations here are quite whimsical.
