This lovely vintage card, featuring the AAA logo, is unused. It is so beautiful, I couldn’t help but buy it, even with the weird grease stain on the front. The neon sign. The cars. Everything is pink. I love it!

Awww yissssss. It’s still standing:

Elizabeth S. Hockl, January 17, 1910 – February 12, 1997. Can’t find an obituary.¬†Henry Hockl Jr, February 25, 1909 – August 28, 1995. Can’t find an obituary. I did find a city directory which lists the motel as their address, along with son Henry Hockl III (in 1955 he was listed as a student; in 1956 he was listed as being in the Air Force).
