Website Updating: Dinosaurs, Department Stores, and Car Dealerships

These dinosaurs at the Petrified Rock Garden in Holbrook, AZ are gone now:

and all of the petrified wood is gone also. (Not to worry: the dinosaurs at the larger Rainbow Rock Shop just down the street are still there.)

Moving on to the Car Dealership section. The former Winslow Ford building in Winslow, AZ sat vacant for many years:

Earlier this year, it was remodeled and the plate glass windows are all gone:

This canopy in Titusville, FL was built for Gus Faulk Chevrolet. It was demolished earlier this year.

The Len Pollak Buick dealership building in Gary, IN was built in 1969:

This building was demolished a few months ago:

The Lyons Auto Company building in Grand Forks, ND was demolished along with the other buildings on the block in February. A new development with retail and residential space will be built:

That’s enough for now. The next sections up will be Mini Golf, Diners, and maybe more.

Happy trails,
dj & the dogs
