    [Cut and pasted from "Vintage Roadside"] If by chance the admittance bar is much lower than I believe and I do get into heaven, that place will be there.

    Effectively, The Dill Pickle and Hector's Palace of Sweets will be right next to each other.

    Looks like it's been a while since this one glowed. Maybe a more suitable candidate for the ghost signs thread.

    That slight squeal you just heard was the Fading Fasts' car quickly slowing down and turning into Federhofer's Bakery.

    After a good fifteen to twenty minutes of buying more stuff than they need, the Fading Fasts can be spied sitting in their car in the parking lot trying all sorts of pastries and cookies from open bags with smiles on their faces.

    They are a simple couple, easily made happy.

    ⇧ Almost looks like a movie still from the set of "Hud."

    And ol' Earl... if you leave the windows down when you drop off your car, he'll do the interior for free!
     
  13. And free white-wall tires! Or red or green or blue ...
     
  14. Nothing exciting, but I wish we still had the sign. My Grandfather’s business in Chicago (Oak Park). Sorry for the bad pic. It’s a photo of a proof sheet.

    ⇧ Great sign, great pic, great family history. Shame you don't have the sign, but the pic itself is very cool.

    very cool! I wish you still had the sign, too. At least you've got the photo.

    Spotted this relic along US 231 somewhere south of Ashville, AL. Looks like it's been a minute since those tubes last glowed.
