You can find the Beetle Spider in Avoca, Iowa, about halfway between Des Moines and Omaha.

This unique structure was built a few years back and stands 10 feet tall, with 8-foot legs welded on. There are also a few other welding creations from the family on the property, including a dragon and a dinosaur.

As it turns out, welding is in the family, so welding this creation wasn't that tall of a task.

You can find the Great Volkswagen Beetle Spider of Avoca, Iowa at 649 S Chestnut St, Avoca, IA 51521.
