Fort Worth Champion Spring Service

I was driving around with my dad and we found ourselves downtown and he asked me if I wanted to get a photo of Fort Worth Champion Spring Service's sign. I said, "Hell, yeah," and he proceeded to pull right up on the curb.

I got out and snapped this photo. It's an old as hell neon sign. The place has been there since 1928. Their sign features a leaf spring and a shock absorber.

I think it may well be out of business because it was closed, locked up and there wasn't a car in either of its two lots, one on each side of the building.

And it's website address comes up with one of those obnoxious pages you get when a website is long gone, the one with advertising replacing the original website.
