“Dwayne Hoover’s Exit 11 Pontiac Village”

1996: Even though Pontiacs were still being made, very few of these vintage neon dealership signs were still in service. When I discovered this one aglow in a small Indiana town, I knew I had to set up for a car & driver portrait.

Happy that I did; on my next visit, not long afterward, the signs were gone, the dealership was closed. Since then, the old brick sidewalk has been replaced with concrete, and the building is now a pizza joint. So it goes.
