Alas, while Elvis is still there, the plaque has left the building.

You can see the marker in front of the pick-ups. It is not as cared for as it once was. Most of the silver is faded off.

Needs to be revitalized, or expect a precipitous drop in Elvis Fight Site tourism.

The Elvis Fight site marker is not looking too good. The engraved plastic plaque is deteriorating and becoming difficult to read. It's a great story of 1977 Fat Elvis jumping out of his limo and showing off his karate moves! Check it out while you still can.

The Elvis Fight Site Marker is alive and well! The text and image seem to have been removed temporarily when the lot changed hands, in order to remove an advertisement for the former occupant. But they are back now.
