Wonderful!
Couple questions....

A) What will the building be?
B) Is it in Iowa? (If you build it, they will come!:rolleyes:)
C) Do you have an insurance rider on the sign?

Now that looks good !
Now you need a couple big inside decals for the windows to top it all off.

I like it! That building has a lot of character. What is the hisrtory of the building? Had it always been a Ford dealership until now?

Very nice!
Interesting questions Mr. Rice. I hope you're not planning a road trip to "borrow" that sign :-)

Looks great; very appropriate. If people didn't know better, you could tell them it's always been on there! BP

Jeff, I was thinking I would use it to work on studes, not worried about theft, it is haevy and hard to get to.

The building was built in 1916 as a ford dealership and has served many purposes since.

Bob K. glad you like it I plan on many good times in the future there.

The 56 is there on consignment, quite a nice car.

Bob P. My home is 8 miles form the building, No Curt is not involved at all. I do plan to be at southbend see you there. Allen

Glad everybody likes the building, stop by anytime. Allen

Way cool looking. So is it a original sign or did you make this one? Seems I remember a post where you mentioned you were going to make one if you couldn't find an original. If you did make it can you show some pictures of the build?

brian do stop by I think you are leaving a week ahead of us so we should be around.

TDITS I did build the sign, decided by the time I found one too much time would fly and the prices were high also, I could send build photos to your e-mail if you send it, might be boring for the rest. Allen

Great job!!!
You should have called and I would have helped (by NOT calling you show you know what you're doing). :)

For those of you unfamiliar with Allen's work, check out the three pages on my freshly restored Avanti in the latest Avanti magazine.
