thought process.......... " I saw a small Firestone sign sign sell for $100 and this one is like 150 times bigger"

Are these dealer owned?
I'd hate to hear corporate move in and take ownership of that sign.

These signs were made until the late 70's and many are still in use. Many have changed over. A local sign company is working on a project to cover these over. They will stay intact due to the size. New signs that are being up cannot be this big. So they are leaving many of the old ones up and putting a new sign over them.
