Everybody calls him Sparky , he’s a relatively new collector but has been hitting it hard for 6 or 7 years putting what you see all together in a really short time frame . He’s a good guy and would love to have anyone stop by and check it out .

We’re now at 221 signs on poles with another 15 signs waiting for footings to be poured so we can stand them as well as ready to erect a 5,000 sq ft Museum/Event Center so people can plan events and have a nice place by the river to have them and rent a “night at the museum” for some great fun.

Call me or text anytime. I’m always anxious to meet another collector. Can’t have too many friends

Sparky is right! What else are u gonna call a guy named LaVorn Sparks? I tell people my mom must have decided on my name when she was in labor with her worst pains and decided to get even with me for them!
