Portugal Auto Garage

Portugal Auto Garage

What I like best about this sign is the little painting of the sports car nestled  under the arch of “Auto Garage.” The tomato red line is a bit wobbly and hesitant, as if made by someone more comfortable holding a wrench than a paintbrush.

The damaged black letters appeal to me as well. All those scratches give the business name a look that’s rough, ready and real. I’m reminded of the distressed type you often see in action flick posters.

And how about that repainted phone number? On another sign it might seem klutzy, but here? Just perfect.
