Gerald Ford Reappears in Grand Rapids

Well  at least his likeness did!  This is actually pretty good, although some people look at this as graffiti, but actually think it's very cool.

The images are located on the north side of eastbound I-196, immediately after the off-ramp from U.S. 131, and on the east side of the Ottawa Avenue exit off westbound I-196 - right downtown in the middle of everything.
