Here's a vintage Dairy Queen marquee found off of Route 66 in Holbrook, AZ. This Dairy Queen is located right off the I-40 and is typically busy, especially during the hot summer days. The neon sign dates back to 1958.

UPDATE : This Dairy Queen is still in business and features its vintage roadside sign. Back in 2016, the sign was endangered when the Dairy Queen Corporation wanted this Holbrook franchise owner to replace the neon sign with a plastic sign advertising the slogan grill and chill. Ultimately, the sign was saved. Soon afterwards the sign was saved due to a petition. 06-23
