Here's a cool sign for the Cal West Motors. Great part about this sign is that it still lights up at night.

Check out this marquee for Menlo Honda in Menlo Park. Though the middle part of the sign appears to be new (imagine what it must have originally looked like!), the top of the marquee still features a little guy framed in neon.

 

UPDATE 04/03 : Sadly, the neon "little guy" no longer sits atop the Menlo Honda sign. The rest of the sign is still there, just the neon figure has been removed. Many thanks to Mark Pedersen for update. 04-03

G&G Used Cars features an old neon sign. Once upon a time, neon signs like this were much more prevalent along the roadside.

Check out this roadside gem of an auto dealership. Ellis Brooks Chevrolet and Pontiac located in San Francisco remains a roadside treasure today.

The neon still glows at Ellis Brooks Chevrolet. Rooftop signage were all the rage once upon a time, but now are getting rare, especially those of the neon variety.
