Two popular convenience store chains started in Tulsa, OK in the late 50s. One was Quik-Trip, which is successful. The other was Git-n-Go which has finally called it quits. Of the two, Git-n-Go had the cool sign with the "running boy neon signs" theme. The majority of these signs were destroyed in the early 80s to be replaced by a cheap plastic sign with a red light-green light logo.
