Day 4: Clovis, NM to Alpine, TX

Some remote stops:  lots of sun and driving in Western & Southwestern Texas.  Let’s start with this one from Dimmit, TX:

A couple of retro (modern) signs from Lubbock, TX.  The same designs were used for Teddy Jack’s Armadillo Grill in Amarillo, TX:

These drive-ins just blocks apart in little Big Spring, TX must have been related.  Either the same names originally or, at a minimum, the same sign shop:
