Fabens, Texas is the last stop east out of El Paso county. The ginormous rooster guarding Fabens Street is not the only interesting item here. Some of Steve McQueen’s “The Getaway” was filmed there, though off hand I couldn’t pick out where.
Before the rooster is a Pontiac Ventura permanently embedded in an empty lot. It appears to be advertising the locations great potential for your future business opportunity:
Traveling down Fabens Street, left onto Alameda and in about a mile you will find what looks like a airplane graveyard:
The property has several fuselages scattered about it along with random airplane parts and crates of Steno cans. The Steno and plane wrecks gave me a creepy “Alive” vibe, minus the cannibalism and bitter cold.
Fabens is also not immune to the effects of rampant file sharing and movie piracy:

Not really. It sure does look similar to the Eagles album cover though. The warm hands of God must have kept their palm trees alive during February’s unusual 4 day freeze, unlike 95% of El Paso.
