This lovely vintage postcard, sent to me by my fabulous sister, is postally unused. I did double-check the card for the spelling of the Owner Hosts, and it is Ivar and not Ivan. This card features the AAA logo. It is a very nice sign, but the rest of the place looks rather bleak. Brightly painted doors or a potted plant might help soften the image.

OMG, not only does it still exist, but I think it is even better looking than before:


But wait, Google Street View. What is that I see?


Keep it classy, ‘Murica!
