found this sign years ago for next to nothing, don't ask how much, you'll hate the answer, and i finally got it hung and working. it's the real deal from the 1940's and it's about 12 feet long. the garage is happy now, and so am i.
i am, yes. a few years back i was offered ten grand for this sign if it was working. that's probably at least what it would cost me today to own it if i didn't already. i've not seen another for sale anywhere, so i guess in this case, it's worth at least that.
