Sea Jay Motel
Treasure Island, FL
Thunderbird
Beach Resort Hotel
Treasure Island, FL
Queen's Lodge Motel & Apartments
West Palm Beach, FL
I believe the Sea Jay Motel was built in the 1950s. Their sign features animated, cascading neon at night. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The Thunderbird Beach Resort Hotel was built in 1957. Their giant sign is lit at night. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4. [map]

The Queen's Lodge Motel & Apartments was established in 1972. The motel and this sign look older than that so it was probably another business/name before that. [map]

Hall Hardware [map]

Andy's Drive-in
Winter Haven, FL
Skycraft Surplus
Winter Park, FL
Andy's Drive-in opened in 1951. It is officially known as Andy's Drive-In Restaurant and Igloo. The "igloo" is the ice cream take-out window on the side of the building. [map]

Skycraft Surplus opened in the mid-1970s and features this UFO over the entrance. There are also two rockets mounted on the exterior wall. The store sells electronic parts, electrical supplies, hardware, and other stuff. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Holler Chevrolet
Winter Park, FL
These photos of the Holler Chevrolet signs were taken in 2009. By 2011, the blade and OK signs (above right) at the previous location were gone. The larger sign has been adapted. The neon "Chevrolet" panel was replaced with a plastic panel reading "Driver's Mart." The smaller panels below it were replaced. For more, see this website.

Badcock
Furniture [gone]
Ybor City, FL
Badcock Furniture first opened in Mulberry, FL and now has over 300 locations in the Southeast. However, this location and sign are now gone. A similar sign existed in Fairmont, NC.
