    Acme Speedshop John has a day job , he's owner of Sign Source , designers & builders of Rad signs , so we teamed up with John & with the Blessing of the Good Old City of Whittier, proceeded to rehab my building. The results are quite stunning , the building was built in 1948 with some cool detailing ,lost in a plain white paint job.I'm really diggin the results , new windows & green tile will be done next .Sorry for the poor night shots , my old digi camera won't allow long exposure. You'll be able to find us now if your Uptown ;)

    Sharp building, would have been easier to enjoy if you would edit your post and list the pictures one under the other instead of next to each other. Wouldn't have to scroll do far over.

    I've known John for many years as both a friend and fellow signarts practitioner, and his creativity always amazes me . That sign really gave your building some personality.
     
  27. That looks wicked. Wish we had more cool speed shops
