The Wilson Building looked better without a billboard.

On a positive note, they did bury some of the electrodes.

They sure don't make running boards like they used to...

Toad & Rack Editor:
At least the third sign in 40 yrs. Before this one it was for Asahi beer. Much more M.B.-approved.

Used to be a shitload of car lots down that stretch in the '70s; all gone now.

And we're so old that w/in our memory the Bouffant famb'ly had a '39 Buick coupe w/ r-boards. At some point the male parental unit removed them. No idea why.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
