Felix the Cat "Neon" Sign

Although the Felix Chevrolet sign was built as a neon sign, and is still commonly referred to as neon, it was completely reconstructed with modern LED strips in 2012. A 2007 attempt to landmark the neon sign was halted by Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and then Felix Chevrolet broke its promise to the community to preserve the neon, or donate it to a museum.
