Here is a cool video I found showing a glimpse of driving down the highway about 1960, lotsa gas stations and signs.

And I collect big old porcelain neon signs

I think one of those wide Mobil shields ended up on my backyard fence! LOL!

Looks like the new '59 Ramblers and Cadillacs are in! Looks like if they would have trimmed the fins on the Caddies, they would have fit under that bridge! : )

I didn't know that Phillips 66 used the orange signs that late or that the HC signs were still in use. I did see the DX signs that I grew up with.

I kept watching to see if I recognized anything since I've driven Iowa 330 quite a bit which runs on a section of old US 30, but they didn't show any of that section.

Good film!

Whats up with the rotating Standard sign at around the 6.15 mark?
