Italy, Texas Has a 60-Foot-Long Caterpillar

In Italy, Texas, you'll find a 60-foot-long caterpillar.

Half an hour south of Dallas, you'll see what looks like a giant caterpillar looming over I-35E. Its name is Bruco, and it's actually the 14,000-square-foot factory where a company called Monolithic constructs Quonset-type prefab houses. There's a whole community of Flintstones-meets-WWII-looking houses near the factory where enthusiasts can rent a dome of their own.
