    This is more of a flashing arrow but it does have flashing neon. It's hard for me to capture in pictures how the arrow flashes from the top down why'll the neon flashes off and on, but it's kinda cool. IMG_2339.JPG IMG_2338.JPG

    This Stromberg sign was made to look old, I had a local sign shop put neon around it to give it more of a vintage look. It looks alot better and brighter than this picture shows. IMG_2470.JPG

    That's some great work there, blackout78666! Out of curiosity, do you make any small neon signs?

  18. Great signs. I love neon.
    In Las Vegas is a museum with a bunch of old neon signs they are restoring for display.

    Have a few, PBR is a new reproduction, MGD is an original and the"FULL" sign comes from an old drive in theater in L.A. somewhere. Have been to the neon museum in Vegas, really cool place! Want to go on one of their night shows, sometimes. 20190918_194018.jpeg 20190409_203843.jpeg 20190125_200907.jpeg
