  1. I miss all the old neon that has been removed, the night time just isn’t as vibrant these days..

  2. That stretch of Glisan was renamed too. It’s Lloyd Blvd now.

    I remember that marquee was “Beeper City” in the 1990’s. I got my first and only beeper there before cellphones became affordable.

  3. The 1963 Pontiac Tempest in foreground has it’s passenger side “wing window” open; I miss those, they were nice to have.

  4. Also has the PontiacTempest’s “rope drive” and if a 4cyl it is the 1\2 a V8 engine, a V8 minus one bank of cylinders. Weird things they did.

  5. Spirit of 77 is a good place but hard to find an empty spot in the lot. Have had to park @ the Convention Center. It was worth it.

  6. Lou, I really miss those wing windows too. You could get air without those weird air current noises. I think they went away when people stopped smoking in cars, but that could just be a coincidence.
