Classy Car Wash Sign?

Took a picture of this the other day in Glasgow...
Thought it was so bad I loved it... you got to think about what was going on in the guys head at the time when doing this “to bring in customers”?
I love how his imagination runs riot by filling in the centres of the letters and changing some words to red...

:lol1:
Is the car wash battery operated?
Is the owner bisexual?
Do they play AC/DC on overhead speakers?
That sign looks American to me.

Two colour work always adds a touch of class.
Good use of the whole format, we wouldn’t want any wasted space around the edges.
I believe it’s on a recycled board, very kind to the environment.
And isn’t it nice to see that craftsmanship with a brush is alive and well?

Bit off topic but I got quite a few AC DC albums (all) on mp3 alledgedly an ave got dirty deeds done dirt cheap, Back in Black an Sin City constantly goin on in me head if you know wnat I mean.
A great example of Timeless classic rock if there ever was one.
Looks like they have stopped touring now a pity.

Forbie, if you ever cross the pond in February,
I will take you to the fireman's ball in Mars.
(with Stevo of course)
It is an annual banquet held at the VFW.
My cousin's band plays there & they do all the AC/DC tunes.
The fire chief puts his necktie on his head like Rambo,
and plays the meanest air guitar you ever saw.
It is truly a sight to see.
The beer flows and the rednecks get all goofy.
I get to attend because I do their firetrucks.
Most in attendance would probably give that sign a big thumbs-up!
Love...Jill
(knocking you out with those American thighs)

Hey Rob, why not set a new design competition to makeover this sign.
I know it'd be a challenge to improve on such a master piece but we're a game lot :D
