    Very nice piece of Automotive History, this is the only one that I have personally seen and it’s price is above. 5’x2’.5” Metal.

    Below is another piece of Automobilia Advertising as it is 14’ in length and about 5’ tall and 10” thick? 630D97F1-F1A8-417A-ACE0-9B4A7E1B283D.jpeg I’ve stored this over 10 years when we saved the very famous Harvey’s Broiler and turned it into Bob’s Big Boy Broiler, (Which has its 10yr anniversary of operation on the 19th of Oct).
    This piece of history can be someone’s for $4500.00. It’s not in Perfect condition and would warrant a complete restoration. It’s extremely heavy and requires a flatbed truck or trailer for transport. (Our other sign was reportedly stolen from the sign shop where we had the new signage made and the Broiler script restored, its never been found).
    I also have various letters from the drive-ins signage in it’s damaged condition as we pulled it from the wreckage, some letters are not touched at all.
    $1900.00 could get all of them as their all over my back yard and I’d rather see someone who could carry on the caretaker duties of these signs.
    Thx 4 looking and driving on “All Roads That Lead To The Broiler”.

    The Porcelain Firestone sign is sold, The JOHNIES sign remains. The sign is 14’ long & 5’tall. This is a VERY historic piece of a much cruised icon that existed on its 70’ mounting from 1968 to 2008 when it was removed in order to make way for its replacement the Bob’s Big Boy Disc much like what had been seen in the 50’s. This sign has been in my possession since it’s removal.
