What can one say but WOW! Our Neon Tour was an amazing display of all types of vintage neon products from juke boxes to signs to gas pumps. And in addition, there were many types of soft drink items, including coolers, dispensers, wall signs, neon signs, as well as advertising posters.
Special thanks go to Jeanette and Joe Wright for setting up this tour again, due to popular demand.
We met at the Rendezvous Restaurant on Mt. Lehman Road and had a most delicious brunch of just about anything your heart could desire, and from there headed off for the tour. And what a tour it was.
We were treated to a flawless collection (and a great history lesson) of all eras of beautifully restored and original juke boxes, soft drink machines, enamel signs, pinball machines, gas pumps plus a huge number of neon signs, one armed bandits, and, yes, a merry-go-round.
Many, many thanks go to our genial, generous and knowledgeable host, Ivan, for opening his collection to us.
There is also a fine write-up done of this tour (and more about our club) by Frank Nicolette in the latest The Vintage Car. Great pics, great article.
Thank you, Ivan!
