Hiding in someones back yard in Portland are these gems. Lots more of these A&W classics looming around the country: LINK.
Land of Giants has the details:
The Portland Burger Family and Papa Burger are located in the backyard of a private residence. The Papa Burger was originally in Santa Clara, CA. In the 1970s, he was moved to a pumpkin patch / produce stand and remodeled to look like a farmer. He was moved to Portland in 2006 and will be restored.
The same owners acquired the Burger Family in 2007. These figures were found in a field in SD around 1995 and then brought to northern CA
