Wordless Wednesday: Cars and Neon, Great Together

Found this bit of trivia above in an exhibit at the entrance to Carsland. I’m too inquisitive not to find out more about it!

Here’s what I found:

“In 1923, Georges Claude and his French company Claude Neon, introduced neon gas signs to the United States, by selling two to a Packard car dealership in Los Angeles. Earle C. Anthony purchased the two signs reading “Packard” for $24,000.”

That’s over $300,000 USD in today’s money!
