    It is 28" tall and 15'3" in length. Just out yesterday on a forage and happened across it as a result of another ad. Boy, sometimes dumb luck does happen! Keep searching!

      You can ask whatever you want. The one on ebay has been there forever and will never sell for that price. In the "real world" it's a $500 sign.

      I included a link to one that sold recently.

      Yeah, I had to convince my wife that it is not a 10k sign, not even in immaculate, eat-off-of-it condition. I paid a little more for mine, but to me it was worth it and I am not a dealer just a collector. Already have a place for it in the garage :)

      Great looking sign, my folks use to own a Western Auto store. I remember this sign and how large it was on their store.

      Found a part of the sign this weekend.mine just says west and associate store under it.its about 9ftx3ft.anyone know around what year mine is.I've got it listed on the Memphis Craigslist.

      yeah, it's not a $500.00 sign either. In California you could get $2,000.00 easy.

      Well considering this one just sold for $510 i think my price i said was plenty fair.

      I got one just like it for $1200. 15' 7" x 28' . I see the prices rising on WESTERN AUTO and west coast prices are higher because the store started out west in Arizona I believe. Even those born in the 1970's will remember this store and the market will grow for these. It's a keeper !
