  1. Not that many businesses left with the Frontier/ Pioneer motif. It was popular at one point in time.

  2. I like palindrome addresses, words.
    Signage looks like Paul Bunyan swapped his ax for a 357 Hawken rifle.

  3. The correct address of the Frontier Motel was 8715 SW Barbur Blvd. This motel has a colorful history like many of the motels on Barbur Blvd. It started out as the Coucher’s Auto Court, then Allen’s Auto Court, then Frontier Motel, then King’s Row West Motel and finally the Budget Lodge. The motel closed in 2018.
