Here's a rather tall marquee for the Paul Miller Ford in Lexington. When this sign is all lit up, it's hard to miss.

New Iberia is home to this slightly remodeled Model T era Ford dealership. 02-07



Albemarle, NC

Here's an old Pontiac sign in Albemarle, NC. Although there were some newer reproductions of old Pontiac signs on this building now used as a coffee shop, the structure was not of the style that could possibly have ever been a small town auto dealer. 01-08



Dodge Dealership

Here's an old Dodge Dealership sign, found in the town of Danville, VA. 04-08

Taylorsville is the location of Hammer Motor Company. Typical of a small town dealership from decades ago. No indication of what exactly was sold here. 05-08

Franklin Auto
Mooresville, NC

Here are pictures of NASCAR ground zero or as they say on the signs around town "Race City". Odd thing is how in the downtown area there is no indication of anything NASCAR related but this is where it started and  the outskirts of downtown is where many of the teams are based. The downtown has a nice turn of the century look. The railroad tracks go right through the middle of town making it seem as if there are two main streets. The Franklin Auto ad is a curiosity as I have not seen such an elaborate vintage car advertisement like this anywhere else. Perhaps it was an old ghost that was restored? Franklin cars were not built in North Carolina. 05-08





Boy Scout Building
Mooresville, NC

You see here too and old auto dealership, now used for a Boy Scout troop. Again I saw no indication as to what kind of cars were sold here, but aside from it looking like an old dealership, the building details of a spoked wheel certainly give it away. Maybe Franklin cars were sold there? 05-08

Check out this old Oldsmobile sign found in the town of Sheflin, AL. The sign depicts a lost GM brand name from not too many years back... about 5 years to be exact. 04-09
