The obligatory chicken sign....
The tail wags. I didn't see anything else move.
As we have noted before, you got a winner sign on your hands when you put a giant image of whatever it is you sell on the sign. Looks like the front of the grill is comprised of a bunch of light bulbs - that had to look awesome when lit and probably would have been hard to do with neon. But fortunately, plenty of neon in the rest of the sign.
Not particularly impressive for the neon, but I wonder if she's the girlfriend of you know who.
Outstanding idea. How cute would the two of them look out on a date? Our buddy holding the door open until her pink tail is all-the-way through.
The two of them walking and laughing while they eat ice-cream cones that neither one is thinking about as they are so into each other. And his hesitation as he goes for a chaste but meaningful peck on her cheek as he says good night at her door.
And heck, if all eventually goes well, how easy would it be to combine the two family businesses - a gas station and motel - it's like it was written in the stars.
I could be wrong, but I bet Commissioner 2jakes, with his photo editing skills, could whip up a photo of the two of them on a date.
Once again, we see that having your sign be or include a giant representation of your product (or, in this case, some part of your tableware) works incredibly well:
Is this the sign in Ocala, Florida?
I don't know, I just found it on the web and posted it cause it looked fun. We have some FL members who will know, though, I bet.
I'm almost positively sure it is, because I've eaten at Lorito's many times...my brother lives in Ocala, and I've always loved that sign.
The reason I ask is because the sign has recently been restored, having been damaged during a recent hurricane, and the neon still works...I'll try to get some photos of it working.
Another reason I wanted to know, was that there used to be a Lorito's in Gainesville, Florida, which used the same design of sign...it, however, vanished mysteriously one weekend many years ago, and no one seems to know what became of it. The original owner of the Lorito's in Ocala has long since been dead, and no one currently there at the Ocala locale seems to know the history.
I have always loved the term "motor hotel"
This one is in Miami
Really good one, you gotta love all the work done on the palm tree's trunk, plus the monkey.
I love that it calls it "100% Refrigerated Air" not "Air Conditioning."
Yeah, that's pretty great. Disney used it in their recreation of the Cozy Cone Motel sign from the movie Cars.
You gotta love the idea of a candle (held in a vintage-style, pre-electricity holder) lit up in neon:
Saw this in Silver Spring, MD this morning.
Posted this one because of the full body shot of Lizzie's ubiquitous pizza chef and what looks like great pie flipping action:
They called it Tropicaire because watching a movie in July and August was hotter than the 3rd circle of Hades.
The Moon Motel
The Half Moon Motel
Arent they both "Half Moon" motels?
Very cool KY!
