IMO, I liked the clothing Big Tex wore before the fire... IMO, it looked the best on him. The new look isn't bad, but I prefer the previous look.

You're correct, it belongs to a private collector. I can't recall for sure but I believe he offered to let them use it to help fashion a new head?

What's amazing about that pic is not Big Tex but how the people were dressed.

I don't mind the new one outside of the boots. And probably the shirt. He look a bit more like a fake cowboy than a real one. But it doesn't bother me so much that I complain about I. He's back. That's what matters.
