Charlie Graham Body and Service [gone]
Omaha, NE
Charlie Graham Body and Service has been here since 1969. The sign is believed to be from then. This building was constructed in 1942 as a Hinky-Dinky Supermarket. Hinky-Dinky had 12 stores in Nebraska. Charlie Graham's animated sign was installed when the body shop opened. The sign is animated with the neon alternating back and forth between a crunched car and fixed one. The sign was restored in 2009. In 2016, it was announced that Charlie Graham would be moving. By 2019, this building had been demolished and the store had moved across the street. The sign was installed on the new building. In 2020, the sign was moved to the Durham Museum. I believe it is in storage. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2.
