Yes, and I still occasionally read posts around here. I still love this stuff, I just don't have as much time for reading the forums as I used to.

Also I now have two sites...

and

Mahalo, Space Age City.

Sabu, after rereading this thread, you really shared some very insightful tiki archeology.

I'd be willing to gamble since nobody really knew any definitive information, that a good lead would be YESCO. The Young Electric Sign Company, or YESCO was Americas premier sign makers, especially dealing in neon. For those that do not know, they are the owners of the Las Vegas Neon Boneyard....Where all casino signs go in the end. YESCO was Las Vegas leading authority when it came to neon and custom signs, and I'm sure that if they didn't make any of these, they probably would know who did and who was their competition in the larger custom sign era, especially the 50s. I don't think sign shops were like starbucks in the 50s, on every corner, so it shouldnt be too much of a mystery to the elders at YESCO. try em' out if anyone is still interested in trying to solve this piece of tiki history.

Sabu, there were some great pics that you had posted at the start of this thread. Any way that you can repost them, or fix the broken links to them?
