Bavarian Cowboys

Today, I've been researching the German obsession -- and, more specifically, the Bavarian obsession -- with the Wild West. And I have discovered:

Pullman City, a Wild West theme park, where "Hobbyists in costume are admitted free."

Bavarian Cowboys, a collective of US/car enthusiasts that have an excellent video on their site.

And, The Art of Being German, a series of photographs by Peter Grasner depicting Germans who dress up as "Westerns."

This article pretty much sums it up.
