Middle finger carving on the way to Kid Rock

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) A replica of Vermont's infamous middle finger hit the road Wednesday, bound for Nashville and its new rock star owner, Kid Rock.

The original structure sits off Route 128 in Westford, where Ted Pelkey erected it to make a statement in a dispute with the town.

Rock star Kid Rock called the Westford man to find out how he could get one. So Pelkey contacted the artist, who agreed to make another one for Kid Rock.

Now, it's on its way to Nashville, Tennessee, and Pelkey is delivering it to the rocker in person.

Pelkey sent us a picture of the finger wrapped in plastic and loaded on his truck for the trip.

We'll keep you updated on the journey.
