Here's a shot of the original Courtesy Chevrolet sign in San Jose, in all it's original glory. Unfortunately, the sign itself was close but not quite in terms of adhering to the corporate logo so the sign had to go.

To the near left is the new, "improved" Courtesy Chevrolet sign. What a shame.

Here's an old sign that points the way to a used car lot in Oakland. Not sure if this sign has always advertised cars.

Here's an old sign for the Schaap Motors in Hayward, CA. The marquee itself looks to be in the shape of some type of shoe. Not sure if that reflects on the type of business that was here before.

Here are a couple of signs from the Jimmy Vasser Chevrolet in Napa, CA. Eye 'em, Try 'em, Buy 'em!" A vintage sign still right there on the car lot! 05-08

Check out the neon letters at the Connell Cadillac and Buick, formerly Connell Oldsmobile back when that brand was still around.

The place is now called Bay Bridge Auto Center with multi GMC brands now sold at the dealership. 10-09
