A “Sign” That You Are Cool
— A Focus on Old Highway 61 Blog and Photos by Gail Gates
“A good ten years before the fact, Dylan was already out-punking Johnny Rotten.”
― Mark Polizzotti, Highway 61 Revisited
Here’s how I see it…you’re driving along Old Highway 61, listening to music, bobbing your head, and feeling pretty darn good. You notice an Old Highway 61 sign hanging off a building here, and a gas station there. Huh. They look retro and cool. You wonder, Where do they get those?
But again, where do they get those signs?
Well my friend, wonder no more. I am here to tell you the Old Highway 61 Coalition has received a fresh new shipment and they are selling fast.
The cost, per sign, is…. drumroll…$61!* Constructed of road-sign grade material, they will stand up to years of outdoors use. (Should you choose to put it somewhere conspicuous just to up your cool-cat, in-the-know, “I have one and you don’t” status.)
You can pick one up at several locations along the Old Highway 61 route, or, the Coalition offers a flat rate shipping fee as well. Easy peasy.
Okay, I am “signing” off now…
* In case you are wondering, the proceeds from these signs go towards the promotion of Old Highway 61, so it is win-win.
