[by Suhita Shirodkar] Dealin' Dollar Dan. How can you not love a character named that? He once belonged to the equally evocatively named Gold Rush Motors. Not anymore. The business is now called Service Rent-A-Car.
Sam's Downtown Feed & Pet Supply. A magical store I am going to have to go back and sketch the interior of has this lovely truck parked in their lot. I don't know a thing about cars, but I do love the shape of this one. And the lettering on that front door is lovely.
And last but not least, Westside Billiards with it's 8-ball and 6-pointed star.
These vintage signs around Silicon Valley are disappearing so fast, and I have a long list of them to draw: some I meant to sketch are already gone: taken down, replaced, even burnt down before I got to them.
