    Fantastic collection! Great job with the capture! [The group, Neon Heaven would be a great group for these neon signs.]

  • Thanks again, Patricia! I will post it to Neon Heaven straight away.

    Awesome! Lots of eye candy all in one place!

  • Thank you. Yes, it is a wonderful display, and the exterior is just as busy, being crowded with gas pumps, metal road signs, classic autos, and so on. For a Route 66 person, it’s paradise! And Johnny is a treasure unto himself.
