Retro Sign: Octopus Car Wash


I love Retro Signage and I snap pics of them all the time. So I figure I would start sharing. Now I ask you, who wouldn’t want their car washed by an Octopus? You know with all those arms, he would do a good job.

  2. Ha ha! I forgot all about it until I saw this, there was a car wash with a neon octopus sign where I used to live back in the 70s. Sign had to be from the 50s. The tentacles moved up and down and spun under the head, and at each end was a sponge. Fantastic.
